Train Detection Systems - Iskratel

Systems for detecting irregularities

in rolling stock and railway infrastructure, where control points are established, intended for safe, effective and efficient control of railway traffic.

The main purpose of the project is to ensure and increase railway safety and reduce damage to the infrastructure. Therefore, we strive to increase the safety level of railway traffic, both for the benefit of the individual and for smooth traffic.
Railway safety is of paramount importance. We must ensure that potential faults and anomalies in both the infrastructure and the vehicle fleet are detected in good time. 

Time and again, irregularities occur in the cargo or faults in the wagons themselves, which can lead to damage to the infrastructure itself or to serious accidents. For example, fires caused by overheated axles or brakes, the occurrence of apartment wheels that destroy the rail beam by impact are not rare events. They can lead to undesirable consequences if not detected in time. 

With this solution, we forward data on detected irregularities to the control center and the responsible services. This enables the operator to protect the national rail infrastructure more reliably, provide higher-quality transport services and, above all, ensure greater transport safety.
Axle temperature, car weight, wheel alignment, protruding load and similar parameters are monitored. Track scales check whether wagons are overloaded. Wagon identification sensors ensure that wagons are tracked across the entire rail network.

In order to be able to react quickly and specifically to detected irregularities, various scenarios are provided for stopping the train immediately, issuing a warning or removing wagons from service.

The detection of irregularities on rail vehicles takes place at several points, where apartment wheels, hot axles and weight are measured and the person in charge is informed about the irregularities.
