Promelectronica Unveils New Application for Wheel Sensor DKU ‘Koldun’

Among the products made by Promelectronica there are wheel sensors that are designed for data and logic systems, to be used in industrial premises. This is our wheel sensor DKU ‘Koldun’.

These wheel sensors now successfully operate as part of the railway vehicle video monitoring and registration system ARSCIS. The system performs a wide range of tasks in the areas of metrology, logistics and security services, such as car identification, railway cargo shipping management, car inspection, and control of car movements and locations.

DKU ‘Koldun’ Railway Wheel Sensor

Within the ARSCIS system the DKU ‘Koldun’ wheel sensor detects axles, and determines the direction and speed of rolling stock. The main benefit of the DKU ‘Koldun’ railway wheel sensor compared to competitive methods of car counting is reliable operation regardless of the car type, movement characteristics (stops and change of direction) and climate conditions.

This type of wheel sensor is also in use at the Syzran Refinery and at Chernomortransneft, JSC.
