Measurements are fully automated and are facilitated by rail vehicles suitable for train and tram tracks. The wire thickness is measured with a compact and State-of-the-Art contact wire inspection system (RIS). This advanced system measures the wire thickness directly and with the highest possible accuracy.
Data are automatically analysed. The results are available within 24 hours after a measurement. Thin spots, including the thin spots under clamps, are detected by an artificial neural network and by video inspection. The results are accurate, free of false positives and positioned on the center-line of the track. Information about the wire thickness, stagger, height and dynamics is made available online.
Visualizing the wire information is made easy. The Service Portal offers free access to useful tools to view the wire information or further analyze the results. It has a highly interactive GIS environment with various geographic maps and features. In addition, it has the functionality to track the maintenance status of incidents.
