SIM-based measurements without rail traffic disruption
EURAILSCOUT has the best measurement and inspection equipment at its disposal for mapping out and analysing the condition of the track. We only use extremely accurate, top-quality measurement systems for this work. EURAILSCOUT carries out the measurements with as little disruption to regular rail traffic as possible. Carrying out the measurements at a high line speed whilst simultaneously recording video images means that rail traffic is not affected by the measurements.
We use a SIM wagon to measure and inspect the switches. The SIM wagon is used to measure the geometry and rail profiles of both the track and the switch and also to record video images, both in the direction of travel and upwards towards the superstructure. SIM stands for Switch Inspection & Measurement. The SIM wagon measures the track and the switches during the regular train timetable, without this timetable having to be disrupted. Its low physical profile means that the SIM can be pushed or pulled by a single locomotive. This means that it can be shunted around without disrupting normal rail traffic.
Another unique aspect of the service provided by EURAILSCOUT is that in addition to the usual measurements of the overhead line including its height and horizontal position, we also measure its thickness very accurately. This gives you a complete picture of the condition of the overhead line. What’s more, we are always actively searching for ways to further improve and innovate our services.
