Battery voltage monitoring for the railway industry

Download this whitepaper to find out how to avoid heavy interventions by monitoring battery voltage levels.

Batteries are key components of train operation. When parked in rail yards (storage, marshalling, etc.), a train’s pantograph cannot remain in contact with the catenary without significant safety risks (e.g., damage to electrical circuits that could cause a fire).

Therefore, pantographs are held down when the train is not in operation. So, enabling a train to operate depends on the battery capacity to lift the pantograph, which is the only component allowing the train to leave its yard.

Monitoring batteries is then a crucial issue for several reasons, including:

  • To maintain the service quality to customers
  • To optimise operations by avoiding delays and heavy re-commissioning interventions.
