ASC Sensors

Use under the harshest conditions – Sensors from ASC ensure both safety and comfort in rail transport.

Alstom is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of rail vehicles. Among other things, the company test the running dynamics and bogie strength of new trains at their Salzgitter, Germany site. Capacitive acceleration sensors from ASC GmbH – a globally leading manufacturer – provide crucial measurement data during testing.

At their German works, Alstom produce regional trains, trams, rapid-transit and underground trains and locomotives. Before they can be approved for personnel transport by the German Federal Railway Authority (EBA), however, the trains must pass a host of tests under realistic conditions. “We carry out running tests and other dynamic tests, among other things. This enables us to verify that a train is technically incapable of derailing,” reported Tim Michatz, deputy director of the test laboratory for Alstom Germany.

“Technically” means that the train cannot come off the track or tip over without an outside influence. In addition to train safety, riding comfort is also a priority.
