Webinar: Railway Pantograph Overhead-Line (Catenary) Monitoring

This webinar was held on:

 Tuesday, June 25, 2019      10:00 AM CEST   

Continuous monitoring of contact forces and acceleration between pantograph and catenary in regularly operated railway vehicles is the fundament for a modern predictive maintenance approach. For a safe and highly accurate measurement on high voltage levels HBM recommends a purely optical measurement chain. Acquiring optical sensor information in parallel to vehicle bus signals and position sensing (GNSS) allows you to build a graphical map of your infrastructure and its need for maintenance.

This webinar shows the complete setup of the solution.

  • Best approach for system design
  • Used components
  • Advantages of modern optical interrogators
