Rail Stress Monitoring System detects broken rail and prevents track buckling due to temperature. It monitors change in strain on continuous welded rail. This system creates redundant mesh network to monitor neutral temperature fluctuations and transmits data to the controller for logging the data for necessary review and action.
The system allows efficient identification of potential broken rail areas before it becomes catastrophic. The crew understands the exact location of the issue where the rail is dangerously getting stressed, and gets opportunity to deploy immediate measures to troubleshoot the problem.
The sensors are installed to sense the strain in rail along the rails, at a fixed interval as well as the controllers for comparing the data and ascertains the difference in rail temperature and neutral temperature and generates alarm.
This system is also play important role to ensure its health by testing the rail strain before and after regular track maintenance.
The said sensors and controllers can be powered by both by cabled power supply or solar power.
The system is designed and manufactured in USA and built robust footprint ensuring the rail safety.
