MERMEC Rail Corrugation Systems (RCS) detect and measure rail corrugations ranging from short (10-30 mm) to long (1000-3000 mm) wavelengths. The system uses optical measurements of the rail surface profile by recording surface displacements with cameras and lasers through the Versine transfer function.

The measurement, with a sampling step up to 5mm and speed ranging from 0 to 160 km/h, can be done with the train travelling in both directions, in all weather environment and in any light condition. Each system offers real-time data analysis and post processing analysis including acquisition, storage and diagram visualization for all the wavelengths. The post-processing allows advanced calculations like the standard deviation for each wavelength. System can be configured to work in Grinding configuration in order to validate grinding works with few micrometer accuracy.
