SKF Axletronic temperature monitoring system
The SKF Axletronic temperature monitoring system is a cost competitive on-board solution. It is used as a safety support system for bearing temperature control for new train installations as well as for retrofitting. The monitoring system is easy to install and is located entirely on the train to transmit warning and alarm messages to the driver.
The analogue temperature signals are converted to a digital signal in a function box and transmitted via bus to the central temperature electronic unit.
Benefits of the system include:
- Increased reliability and reduced risk
- Continuous temperature monitoring and analysis
- Event recorder and data buffering
- Self-checking system
- Adaptive alarm levels
