ASC Sensors

ASC German Sensor Engineering, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of capacitive, piezoresistive and piezoelectric accelerometers, angular rate sensors and inertial measurement units manufacture railway accelerometers for applications such as bogie monitoring, wheelset and pantograph monitoring.

ASC accelerometers are recommended for use in space environments, underwater or during very long exposures to excessive humidity – conditions typically found during test and measurement applications in automotive, rail, wind energy, monitoring, health monitoring, marine and aerospace & defence industries among others.

Hermetically sealed railway accelerometers such as the ASC OS series are commonly used for short-term underwater applications or applications with cyclical temperature variations and excessive humidity – these are typically outdoor and severe operating environments that often result in contamination of the sensor interior, leading to permanent failure of the built-in sensor electronics.

Railway Accelerometers: Typical Applications

  • Rail bogie monitoring
  • Wheelset monitoring
  • Pantograph monitoring
