RSW - Rolling Stock Weighing
Since NGRT are able to combine multiple applications at one specific location this chapter describes the potential use of the NGRT Rolling Stock Weighing (RSW) system. This system could secure a further safety dimension to detecting broken rail and why broken rail occurs and its principle of operation.
A NGRT Weighing Unit, attached between sleepers, will measure the weight of the train. The system will detect when the wagons are either under-loaded or heavily over-loaded, based on specifications set by the Client. An alarm will be sent to any given recipient set by the Client by either email or text message to any phone device specified.
