Predictive maintenance for railways

January 28, 2021 · 1 min read

To enable brake shoes to be optically inspected on an automatic basis, Danish State Railways have installed high-performance scanning systems made by the German company ITTH GmbH & Co. KG. KG in the track bed at stations in Odense and Kolding. These take photos of the brake shoes on the trains as they pass through, using high-performance camera systems.

The images are subsequently transmitted to the computer system with the aid of hybrid connectors from the Fischer FiberOptic Series. With IP68 and IP67 sealing, these connectors are resistant to external influences such as dust, rain, snow, oil as well as gasoline. They also compel with their easy extensibility that enables fast system assembly and disassembly, as well as their data transmission rate of 10 Gbit/s.
