Posted: 28 February 2013 | Frauscher Sensortechnik GmbH | No comments yet

This white paper addresses challenges and the state of the art in wheel detection with regard to operating principles and application opportunities.

Wheel detection with inductive wheel sensors is now established in many railways worldwide as a reliable and cost-effective basis for a range of signalling applications, e.g. track vacancy detection, level crossing protection. Advances in the state of the art in operating principles, manufacturing processes and materials and the intervening decades of experience form the basis for ever more applications and solutions. The developments in the vehicle sector with respect to type variety, electromagnetic emissions and braking technologies also pose huge challenges for wheel sensors if they are to guarantee fail-safe, reliable wheel detection. This white paper addresses these challenges and the state of the art in wheel detection with regard to operating principles and application opportunities.
