New development of Planegg wheel roughness measurement of railway wheels among the seven nominees. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from Chevron U.S.A. Inc. The wheel roughness mwheel by Muller-BBM is used for highly sensitive measurement detecting wheel roughness and polygons on railway wheels, which are essential for the rolling noise mission and increased wear and tear on vehicles. The meter is a high-precision displacement sensor equipped with with a resolution a ten-thousandth of a millimetre. It is small and light, can adjust quickly and comfortably connect to measuring computer via USB. Via the USB interface mwheel is supplied with power. Measurement is automatically started and stopped automatically after a wheel revolution. During the measurement, the roughness are displayed in real time on the screen of the measuring computer. mwheel can be applied for all types of rolling stock, and thanks to its robust construction it can be used in maintenance hangars as well as outdoors.
It is magnetically attached to the rail. The measuring gauge is infinitely adjustable. The adjustment and control of measurements is a user friendly software with graphic user interface available. After completion of the measurement, the measurement results as well as the related third – and order spectra are represented on the screen. The roughness spectra can be compared to the limit curves of authoritative standards. Supporters and readers of the magazine MessTecAutomation from the GITVerlag for one of the seven nominees can vote until March 5. The finals and award ceremony will take place on March 10 in Stuttgart.
