A holistic switch vision: Integrating track & signalling insights

March 19, 2024

However, a holistic approach that combines insights from both track and signalling can significantly enhance the overall efficiency of switch maintenance, leading to improved reliability and safety in rail transportation. KONUX Switch allows for continuous monitoring and prediction of voiding of the sleepers, providing the necessary lead time to plan and execute maintenance. The integration of signalling insights into switch maintenance involves monitoring the performance of the point machine, locking, movement etc, associated with switches. KONUX Point Machine detects and diagnoses underlying faults of different subcomponents using electric current data. KONUX Point Machine forms a key part of the KONUX vision for holistic switch monitoring, since point machine failures are responsible for nearly 60% of switch delays.
