The Frauscher Diagnostic System (FDS) helps minimize track maintenance by identifying faults in advance and preventing their occurrence. It also enables cost-effective spare parts management, which reduces the space required to house parts, and provides timely track status updates that allow for proactive maintenance planning. Our axle counting and wheel sensor technology also do not require regular traversing cycles, allowing them to remain effective even on little-used lines.
Diagnostic Systems Cut Maintenance Costs
Axle counters and wheel sensors, which require maintenance just every two years, ensure low maintenance costs. The FDS helps to minimize the time spent on site carrying out periodic maintenance. Important information, such as the quiescent current of the wheel sensor, can be read from a central service area. Potential faults are proactively identified and prevented before becoming an issue.
Cost-Effective Spare Parts Management
The FDS also enables cost-effective spare parts management, which reduces the space required and the amount of capital that is tied up. With regular maintenance cycles of approximately every two years, the FDS also enables the proactive planning of rail maintenance as the current status can be retrieved at any time, allowing for necessary manpower and materials to be planned in advance.
Quick and Easy Installation
The easy installation, dismounting and calibration features save huge efforts on maintenance during the whole life cycle of the sensors. For example, the dismount sensors in case of tamping can be done very easily. Only one nut has to be opened and the sensor can be removed together with the rail claw.
- Patented rail claw
- Automated calibration
- Convenient plug-in connection
Low Traversing Cycles
Axle counters and wheel sensors do not depend on regular traversing cycles. As no active electronic components are mounted to the track, the system also remains highly reliable on low-traffic lines.
