Devices called accelerometers are employed to determine the correct acceleration of a specific body. Acceleration is fundamentally defined as a change of speed over a given time.
In other terms, acceleration is the measure of how quickly a speed changes in relation to time. If we know the distance travelled and the time required, we may calculate the speed of a given body.
Accelerometers can track issues with the train or the track in real-time to find flaws before an accident occurs.
Such fibre optic sensors are perfect for monitoring wheel-rail interactions because they can detect frequencies that are more than twice as high as those of traditional optical fibre accelerometers.
The functioning of long-lasting FBG sensors is based on the idea of using no moving parts, the fibre accelerometers show good performance in the loud and high-voltage environmental conditions present in the railway field of application.
The Global rail accelerometer market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
MEMS-based capacitive accelerometers called medium-frequency (MF) accelerometers have been introduced, according to Advanced Sensors Calibration (ASC) GmbH.
The MF series is intended for use in test and measurement, condition monitoring, and structural health monitoring applications in a variety of industries, including the automotive, railroad, and wind energy sectors.
The MF series accelerometers from ASC are frequently used for monitoring wind turbine vibration, measuring seismic activity, testing automobiles, and monitoring buildings and bridges.
