The Sensonic Track Condition Monitoring Application (TCM) aids track maintainers in targeted predictive and preventive track maintenance.
TCM provides track maintainers with information on the evolution of track vibration. This empowers them to determine the condition of the track and helps them with:
To achieve this, TCM continuously monitors the complete track by means of Fibre Optic Sensing (FOS) – using just one single dark fiber of a fiber optical cable. The vibration data is collected by the Sensonic Edge Device and analysed by algorithms. Holistic information on the condition of tracks is provided through periodic reports. These reports contain heatmaps showing the evolution of track vibration over a certain period. The heatmap information is based on the Sonic Track Index (STI), a reliable indicator that highlights degraded locations.
Vibration-based Insights for Track Maintenance
Sensonic pioneers new technologies, making it possible to monitor your entire railway network at any given moment in time. Therefore, the TCM Application
Applying FOS for Track Condition Monitoring is especially beneficial:
Sensonic offers some tips on how to secure railway infrastructure from vandalism, theft, terrorism and more.
Sensonic analyses what a flashover is, why flashovers are damaging to the overhead catenary system and more.
Sensonic prevents landslide and rockfall-related railway accidents using DAS, a single sensor that can detect vibrations along 80km of route.
