Our Weighing in Motion System is a dynamic weighing scale for Trains, Metros, LightRail and Trams and can be used for Weighing in Motion, Wheel Flat Detection, Train Detection and much more! The Weighing in Motion System (AWIM) is very accurate and remains accurate at high speeds! Read more
Smart railway sleepers with multi-sensor solution
The Dutch company ProRail (responsible for all railway tracks in the Netherlands) is testing new types of durable sleepers in a testing ground on a stretch of track. The test takes two years, and trains continue to run during the test. Read how we participated in this project with an integrated multi-sensor solution.
The 3D Wheel Measurement System of Althen Sensors & Controls is used for automated contactless analysis of railway wheels. The system collects reliable and accurate data to improve railway maintenance activities and to prevent damage on rail infrastructure.
Wheel Maintenance Measurement Tools
Using the Wheel Maintenance Measurement Tools of Althen is the easiest and fastest way to get reliable and accurate wheel parameters. Our wheel measurement tools are based on laser technology and developed to be used in railway maintenance locations to measure the diameter, scan the profile and measure the back-2-back distance in a modern and innovative way.
The software collects all the measurements via Bluetooth an stores the data into the software. All measurements and wheel parameters can then be easily uploaded into other systems.
