Modern Wheel Detection and Axle Counting
Growing conurbations, increasing car park prices and not least rising fuel prices are pushing trams and underground railways increasingly to the forefront of urban and suburban rail transportation infrastructures.
State of the Art in Wheel Detection
Frauscher Sensortechnik understands the challenge of developing inductive wheel sensors that can guarantee fail-safe, reliable wheel detection. However, while wheel detection systems are in use worldwide, the technology could still be improved.
State of the Art in Axle Counting
Axle counting systems are used in many countries around the world as a replacement for track vacancy detection systems. They are also used in signalling equipment systems to build a more complete picture of what is happening on a particular stretch o...
Track Circuits Versus Wheel Detection
Wheel detection and axle counting systems provide the basic information for track vacancy detection, for controlling level crossing systems and a range of switching tasks or trigger functions. This technology is established throughout the world for s...
