Expertise in Bearing Technology and Service for Rail Vehicles
FAG Axlebox Generator
Schaeffler is developing the condition monitoring system for railway application specially for locomotives, motive power units and passenger vehicles. This system will be the basis for a range of comprehensive solutions for ensuring the functional capability of different vehicle components such as axlebox bearings, wheels and power train. It can be adapted to all types of passenger traffic and offers scalability for up to three axles per bogie. Communication will be realized via the provided train infrastructure. The system optimizes maintenance operations and thus contributes to economical operation of vehicles.
The FAG sensor kit has been successfully used for measuring operating data on axlebox bearings throughout the world for many years. It is optimized for use on FAG TAROL bearings and detects speeds up to 2500 rpm, the direction of rotation and bearing temperature. Two independent temperature sensors can be integrated for temperature measurement. Acceleration measurement in a radial and axial direction is available as an option. The FAG sensor kit operates wear-free and meets requirements for increased EMC und excess voltage protection.
