Condition Monitoring 4.0 for Railways
Schaeffler has developed a condition monitoring system (CMS) with intelligent software and a cloud connection for the digitalized monitoring and optimized maintenance of entire motorized and trailer bogies in passenger trains. This allows higher average speeds, greater mileage, and longer maintenance intervals to be achieved while also increasing operational reliability at the same time.
The operator/maintenance technician can monitor the condition of individual axlebox bearings through to complete wheelsets and bogies from anywhere in the world via an internet connection.
FAG Sensor Kit
The FAG sensor kit has been successfully used for measuring operating data on axlebox bearings throughout the world for many years. It is optimized for use on FAG TAROL bearings and detects speeds up to 2500 rpm, the direction of rotation and bearing temperature. Two independent temperature sensors can be integrated for temperature measurement. Acceleration measurement in a radial and axial direction is available as an option. The FAG sensor kit operates wear-free and meets requirements for increased EMC und excess voltage protection.
