Althen Sensors & Controls BV (Netherlands) - Althen Sensors & Controls has presented their new Weighing in Motion System for the Railway industry (trains, trams & railway). It is a stationary measurement system used for Weighing in Motion, Wheel Flat Detection, Train Detection and much more.
Accurate at high speeds:
The AWIM Weighing in Motion System is very accurate and remains accurate at high speeds. The accuracy of this system is based on measuring a complete train, consisting of a locomotive and various cars. The AWIM System is equipped with eight weighing points.
When combining all measurements an overall accuracy of better than ±0,5% is achieved for passing trains with various speeds, complying with OIML R106, class 0,5. Formal tests by the Technical Research Institute of Sweden show even an average accuracy of ±0,2%.
