Schenck Process introduces mira: monitoring intelligence for rail.
The track-based system measures the safety-relevant load status of trains, as well as detecting force impacts that may have been triggered by defective wheels. The measurement of noise emissions in compliance with standards also enables rail companies to reduce disturbance in populated areas, while identifying critical vehicle statuses if used in conjunction with measurements of defective wheels.
The Trade & Trust product range includes systems for the dynamic and static weighing of coupled train sets for internal checkweighing as well as solutions that deliver legal-for-trade weight data as the basis for calculating the weight of individual cars and train sets. The company supports development with reliable, standards-compliant measurement technology for bogie testing and corner load measurement of rail car and locomotive bodies. Schenck also supplies the technology to perform standards-compliant static and dynamic measurement of vertical wheel forces on rail vehicles.
The idea behind mira is that it collects the knowledge available to all stakeholders, collates it and analyses it. mira also provides assistance and instructions and distributes them to everyone who needs this information. This represents an enormous benefit that pays off from the word go. There is currently no other comparable solution that can collate, interpret and even recommend actions to higher-level control systems the way mira does.mira means shared advantages and benefits for all stakeholders:
- Cost savings and efficiency
Additionally, mira is easy to integrate because Schenck Process already supplies all the essential systems and therefore provides the necessary technical framework. Thus mira could become a reality today.
