The Challenge

To reduce maintenance costs and delay-causing failures for Deutsche Bahn. They need manual measurements by a position measurement system based on custom-made MEMS sensor clusters, which allow autonomous and continuous monitoring with wireless data transmission and long battery. They were looking for data pre-processing solution in the sensor and machine learning algorithms in the cloud so as to detect critical wear.

The Solution

The KONUX sensor solutions allow for real-time switch vibration monitoring, which can indicate incipient failures. Installed on the crosstie beneath the switch, our sensor systems measure the vertical position and identify anomalies that can lead to problems with ballast settlement, crosstie tilt, or stretcher bar cracks.

Data Collected
Asset Location, Downtime, Fault Detection, Per-Unit Maintenance Costs, Vibration
Operational Impact
  • [Process Optimization - Real Time Asset Tracking]
    The health of all critical points can be tracked in real-time via the backend KONUX supplies.
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Maintenance]
    A better understanding of critical components and need-based maintenance through predictive maintenance.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Cost reduction of 25% by minimizing downtime and maximizing performance.
