How Safe is your Railway?

Structural monitoring in the railway industry has been under discussion, particularly since the widespread use of high-speed rail lines. HBM has a wide range of measurement solutions available for rail network monitoring covering:
  • Train wheel out of roundness monitoring 
  • Wheel defect detection
  • Train weight-in-motion determination
  • Axle counting
MGCPlus, QuantumX and Optical Interrogators Data Acquisition Systems One interface. catman®  Electrical and Optical sensors for REAL-TIME /CONTINUOUS MONITORING of: Vibration (Determination of vibration modes) Strain and temperature distribution Sags and displacements, rotations, deflections convergences Deformation, movement

HBM product range and technologies


cover almost all measurements...

  • Strain for fatigue analysis and mechanical stress identification

The Best of Two Worlds

“Besides electrical detection systems, numerous research groups have demonstrated the usefulness of the optical fibre technology to monitor railway infrastructures. With their use, one can determine the structural health of the tracks and its evolution with time, while measuring the traffic. And as such, the maintenance operations can be improved, increasing both the safety level and the availability.”
