Capacitive ASC RAIL Accelerometers

Did you know capacitive ASC RAIL accelerometers are a remarkable evolution of the ASC OS series, which has been a tremendous success across the international railway industry for many years.

What sets apart the ASC RAIL series as the latest inertial sensor innovation to help increase capacity, safety and productivity?

Our accelerometers are tailored to your specific needs and designed to prevail in the harshest environmental conditions. We’ve tested them rigorously to ensure compliance with electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) standards according to EN 50121.

In addition, we took the ASC RAIL sensors through environmental stress tests to validate their robustness in temperature cycling, increased vibrations and shock resistance for axle mounted devices (category 3) according to EN 50155.

However,  there is more:

  • Integrated cable excellence: The railway certified cable incorporated in the ASC RAIL series exceeds technical requirements (EN 50306). It further offers superior fire protection on rolling stock in accordance with DIN EN 45545-2.
  • Superior PG cable gland: The cable gland manufactured by a specialized supplier has been tested meticulously to meet all fire protection standards (DIN EN 45545-2 and 45545-3).
  • Robust housing: Each sensor comes in a hermetically sealed, robust stainless steel housing, ensuring compliance with protection class IP68.
  • Cutting-edge electronics: These robust LN (Low Noise) accelerometers already succeeded in nearly three million kilometers of Continuous Track Monitoring at DB Systemtechnik GmbH and counting.

In the demanding world of rail technology, the ASC RAIL series is your reliable sensor solution for superior performance, even in the toughest conditions. Any questions? Be in touch!
