The wheel sensor in the track is counting wheels and is connected to the controller. Once the desired number of wheels got counted, the controller activates the pump until the piston detector from the main metering device returns a signal. 

The main metering device is connected to 1, 2 or 4 greasing bars (wiper bars) in the track and supplies each bar with the same amount of grease. The incoming grease flow at the bar gets distributed by an integrated device to the 12 outlets per bar. Passing wheel flanges pick up the grease and carry it to the next curve(s).
