Self – Sustainable Bearing & Wheel monitoring system
Powerail wireless autonomous sensors series is based on the BLE and 4G LTE networking protocols.
All Powerail sensors have integrated vibration energy harvesters that utilize Viezo patent pending piezoelectric polymer technology. Stress tests conducted in third party laboratories have proven that even under the moderate vibrations the service lifetime of a product will reach the 15 years period.
Gateway will also utilise various forms of energy harvesting to match the lifetime of the sensors
Reduced downtime & delays
The proper timely monitoring with the help of the sensors results in preventing downtime and delays of the trainsets.
Reduced unnecessary maintenance costs
Costs resulted from the routine physical trips to check and maintain the bearings and wheels can be reduced significantly, since all necessary data will be available online.
Sensors equipped on each axlebox will share the bearing and wheel condition data to the cloud; therefore, empowering the maintenance based on condition of the asset.
