RM-CAT Corrugation Analysis Trolley

Rail corrugation and acoustic roughness measuring trolley for tracks and switches.
Suitable for vignola and grooved rails.

Product description:

Rail surface irregularities of the order of microns (0.001mm) in amplitude are important in the generation of wheel/rail rolling noise and vibrations. The CAT portable measuring trolleys is easy to carry and set-up and is suitable for obtaining continuous longitudinal measurements of irregularities on the rail surface.

CAT

Applications:

  • Monitoring of rail quality
  • Detection of corrugation and acoustic roughness
  • Detection and classification of both short and long waves
  • Assessment of mobile rail treatment results e.g. rail grinding and milling

Main characteristics:

  • Measurements that are highly accurate and repeatable
  • Relatively simple installation and setup
  • Contact measurement system using inertial sensors
  • Suitable for any track gauge
  • User-friendly software for acquisition and review of measurement data
  • Operation through notebook or tablet-pc
  • Robust yet light weight design
  • Extensive product support
