Weight-in-Motion

Every aspect of rail operation is virtually influenced by rolling stock weighing.

Measuring overloads and shifting loads, detecting dynamic wheel force are crucial parameters that needs to be acquired at normal line speed with the greatest possible accuracy.

Weight-in-Motion

Basically, the system continuous monitor the vertical forces applied by the passing train over the rail. The running behavior of vehicles is not influenced. The system is based on specially engineered sensors which are clamped with no mechanical modification or alteration of the rail, rail fastenings, sleeper (cross-tie), sleeper geometry, permanent way profile, ballast or formation in any way.
