Railroad - Monitoring Solution |

We have successfully developed a unique full railroad monitoring system. Our devices replace the standard plastic pads (which are in between the rail and the sleeper) with Innowattech's energy producing pads.


Innowattech's pads, in addition to providing electricity for local railroad needs, can also provide the following data:

1. Speed of train.
2. Length of the train at any speed.
3. Number of wagons at any speed.
4. Number of axles at any speed.
5. Weight of axles, wagons and train at any speed.
6. Distance between 2 consecutive trains at any speed.
7. Distance between 2 opposite trains at any speed.
8. Wheel defect control and wheel diameter at any speed.
9. Rail track health monitoring.

* For all the above the energy is self supplied by the system.

Innowattech's pad

Innowattech's system consists of:

•  8 IPEG Pads.
•  Measurement unit for local processing of the data.
•  Data transmitter.
•  Railway Station Software.
•  RFID Tag-reader (optional).





Innowattech's Railroad Monitoring Solution advantages:

1. Full monitoring system- rail and train.
2. Real time Data transmitting.
3. Self energy supply.
4. Easy and fast installation.
5. Works in all weather conditions.
6. Patent protected.
7. Competitive pricing.
Shown below, an example of a signal measurement.
The amplitude of the signal is based on the voltage derived from our I-PAD.
The figure shows the bending of the rail during the passage of a two-axle bogie;
The first wheel has a significant wheel defect.

Data output from Innowattech's Railroad Monitoring Solution:

1. Speed of train - The speed of train is recorded and transmitted in real time
2. Length of the train at any speed - Length of each train is monitored and transmitted in real time.
3. Number of wagons at any speed - The number of wagons on each train is monitored and transmitted in real time.
4. Number of axles at any speed - The number of axles on each train is counted and transmitted in real time.
5. Weight of axles, wagons and train at any speed - Precise weight of each axle and wagon. Alert will be given if any over weight is occurring on the track. The specific wagon and axle is recorded and monitored.
6. Distance between 2 consecutive trains at any speed - Distance between consecutive trains is monitored and an alert will be given in real time if distance is smaller than agreed upon.
7. Distance between 2 opposite trains at any speed - Distance between opposite trains is monitored and an alert will be given in real time if distance is smaller than agreed upon.
8. Wheel defect control and wheel diameter at any speed - Real time alert and recording of all trains wheels health and condition.
9. Rail track health monitoring - The condition and health of the rail tracks will be monitored. If any change occurs in infrastructure, a real time alert and notification will be given.
