Shunt Measuring Equipment
This equipment automatically measures the electrical resistance between the two wheels of each axle on the train. The measurement is obtained by two ends of stroke that control the vehicle passing and that activate a circulation current: by measuring the voltage and the current the resistance value is obtained with an accuracy of a thousandth of an ohm, sending these values directly to the central computer.
The insatallation of this equipment on the track requires an isolated stretch measuring at least the length of the greatest turn of the wheel to be measured maintaining the general continuity of the track.
Accuracy of the Shunt Measuring Equipment: <0,001W.
