Condition Based Maintenance
Televic Rail provides a complete proven solution for train and track Condition Based Maintenance. The COSAMIRA system enables a reduction in maintenance costs through predictive analytics and improves fleet availability. With over twenty five years of experience and operational references throughout the world, Televic has an unparalleled ability to provide a proven, cost effective solution.
COSAMIRA comprises bogie mounted data collection and analysis hardware with on-board data analytics linked via our secure data transfer technology to a range of dashboard software solutions for a fleet wide overview.
COSAMIRA enables an operator to have a real time continuous overview of all aspects of the bogie operation including wheel bearings, wheels, traction motors, gearbox, braking systems and bogie instability. In addition the sensors will identify and report on various track anomalies and provide a GPS stamped location to ensure repair teams are sent to exactly where they are needed.
Making use of varying sensor systems, the COSAMIRA ‘Edge’ bogie mounted data collection and analysis hardware runs configurable algorithms to provide meaningful decision support information to maintenance managers and predicts component wear and potential failure enabling the pre-positioning of equipment, spares and staff for maximum efficiency and cost reduction.
The COSAMIRA Condition Based Maintenance solution ensures the train operator achieves the maximum life from all components reducing maintenance costs and improving return on investment. Running continuously at all train speeds and in all conditions, year round COSAMIRA represents the most comprehensive and cost efficient way to achieve a total overview of the bogie and track status.
The data can be viewed via the COSAMIRA configurable dashboard or if required making use of train manufacturer software systems for an integrated seamless solution. Data is collected and analysed across the entire fleet to enable multiple data combination and trend analysis.
Televic Rail has an unparalleled twenty-five years of experience in bogie mounted systems with installations on trains all over the globe, operational in desert sun and Alpine cold. Trusted by train manufacturers and operators to deliver, the COSAMIRA system is backed by a worldwide support infrastructure from the Televic regional offices in Belgium, UK, France, Germany, Bulgaria, USA, China and India. In addition, COSAMIRA systems can be combined with Televic Passenger Information Systems technology to facilitate ‘Smart Train’ operation where the entire train health and operational effectiveness can be monitored and reported.
The Televic COSAMIRA system has at its heart the three pillars of Condition Based Maintenance:
- Do what is needed, not what is scheduled
- Replace before failure
- Be prepared for work
