Manual Profile Measurement of Rails via 2D/3D Profile Sensors on Trolleys

Regular measurement of tracks is necessary in the rail industry to ensure the safety of rail transport. Trolleys are used for short sections of track for this purpose. In manual mode or on a small locomotive, they use four 2D/3D profile sensors to check the rail geometry for bare or rusty steel with micrometer precision. Via laser triangulation, the sensors provide values for width, inclination, irregularities or damage. The sensors reliably measure in all weather conditions, high levels of ambient light, such as sunlight, and any temperature.

2D/3D Profile Sensors

Sensors of this type measure profiles of objects such as weld seams or glue beads and check roundness or gaps using laser triangulation. Red or blue laser light, open interfaces and various performance classes are available.
