Bogie Control & Safety Systems
Why is BOGIE CONTROL AND MONITORING important?
Bogie hunting: Real-time monitoring is vitally important
The dangers of bogie hunting are well recognized and on high-speed trains, the effect can be catastrophic.
Televic GSP systems are proven to quickly and accurately detect this anomaly while providing warnings to crew and offering remedial stability of the system.
Risk reduction: Safety and Integrity Level 2
The Instability Monitoring System and the Total Tilting Failure Recognition are compliant to Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL2). Televic GSP has delivered more than 3000 of these systems.
Passenger comfort measurement
The COSAMIRA system maps out the exposure to shocks and vibrations, providing an objective tool to measure and improve the passenger comfort on your fleet.
The data can be used to actively move the car bodies in lateral direction (active lateral suspension), reducing shocks and discomfort.
To enable trains to tilt when entering a bend, Televic GSP has designed a bogie sensor system detecting turns in the trajectory.
The sensors measure the tilting behavior and monitor aspects like uneven tilt, wheel unloading and gauge infringement.
Active Radial Steering
COSAMIRA is also used to steer the wheels of the bogie, decreasing rail and wheel friction.
The sensors measure lateral wheel acceleration and use this data to control the actuator steering the wheelsets.
