The axles transmit driving force to the wheel and maintain the wheels’ relative positions in relation to one another and the vehicle body.
The axles of railway vehicles can be divided into three categories: coach axle, locomotive axle, and freight wagon axle.
Due to the use of straightforward fibre cable, fibre optic axle counter sensors will result in a significant reduction in copper usage.
Additionally, line side electronics will no longer be necessary thanks to the virtually limitless transmission length provided by optical fibre, significantly reducing power consumption.
In order to determine whether a track section is “clear” or “occupied,” axle counting systems are used. Axle counting systems have been acknowledged as the industry standard for train detection for many years.
When compared to the track circuit based systems frequently found in North America, these systems offer higher levels of availability, uptime, and reliability in addition to lower installation, maintenance, and lifecycle costs.
Axle counting systems have modular design options and include both indoor and outdoor equipment components.
The Global railway counting axle single cable market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
For system integrators and operators, Frauscher axle counting systems have many advantages. As a supplier at the component level, the goal is to benefit both operators who must take the system’s long-term use into account when designing and implementing systems, as well as system integrators.
The overvoltage protection component (BSI) in the evaluator equipment protects against interference voltages that might be induced into the signalling cable.
The wheel sensor’s tail cable is used to send the analogue signal from the wheel sensor to the indoor equipment. This cable is attached to a 4-conductor signalling cable in a waterproof connection box located trackside.
With space-efficient board racks that enable flexible design, the indoor equipment can be kept in trackside huts or rooms with centralised control.
