Wheel Detection

Inductive sensor technology provides highly precise and reliable solutions that can be used in a wide variety of applications.


Wheel Detection

Reliable and precise solutions for a variety of applications

Many years of worldwide experience have enabled Frauscher to develop wheel sensors that are characterised by maximum availability. They generate an analogue signal aspect based on inductive processes. This signal response is sent on in the form of a direct current signal to the indoor equipment, which can also be positioned in cubicles distributed alongside the line. This means that no active electronic components are placed on the track itself.

Even when subjected to extreme temperatures, vibrations and electromagnetic interference, Frauscher wheel sensors generate reliable data for both vital and non-vital applications. Additionally the patented rail claws and plug-in connection available on some models make the mounting of Frauscher wheel sensors a quick and simple task. In addition, simple maintenance cycles and low maintenance costs guarantee minimal life cycle costs.

Wheel detection systems

Highly available wheel detection systems are an integral part of a wide variety of railway applications, from simple switching tasks to fail-safe train detection. Modularity and flexibility of the hardware and software components are key factors in being able to guarantee optimum operation, even when subject to the most stringent requirements. This means that the presence, speed or direction of an axle can be reliably detected under all climatic, technical and operational conditions.

Wheel sensors

Frauscher wheel sensors provide a wide range of different functions for numerous applications. They are supplied without an evaluation board and the evaluation of the signal falls to the system integrator, who is thereby able to adjust the interpretation in accordance with its individual requirements. Connection to the customer application takes place via open analogue interfaces. The sensors consist of two independent sensor systems built into a single housing, which generate an analogue signal based on inductive processes.
