The system is a subsystem and is installed with the “Automated diagnostic system for the measurement of geometrical parameters of car wheelsets” or “Digital diagnostic system for the measurement of geometrical parameters of rolling stock wheelsets.”
Detection of such defects during the train movement as slid flat, weld-on deposit, void and uneven wear; monitoring of car weight, load on car axle, higher-than-normal impact of the wheel on the rail, distribution of car weight. The system registers and promptly transfers information to the nearest maintenance depot.
Operating principle of the system is based on laser non-contact control of geometry of moving three-dimensional objects using strain gauge position sensors.
