Features of the BW Series

Dynamic / Static Bogie Weighing (DPS) Derailment Protection System

The Derailment Protection System (DPS) is an unmanned or manned system that will identify loadings of individual wheels. The DPS will raise an alarm if any wheels or axles are out of a pre-set tolerance input by the user.

Health and safety is optimised with the DPS’ built in Centre of Gravity system. This makes identifying any risks easy and simple, prior to trains leaving the depot. The DPS is especially useful for providing peace of mind that the train, carriages and cargo are safe.

All data can be stored internally on the DPS for downloading to a PC or USB stick and/or printed for records of the readings to be signed off and stored for future reference. The recorded data can easily be integrated into ISO quality systems.
