Latronix has recently delivered the OWLS Track Geometry (OTG) system for use in commissioning a new train. The operator has purchased a series of new trains and before commissioning in passenger traffic, it must be evaluated that these live up to the specifications. The notified body performing the validation uses the OWLS as part of the measurements required to evaluate the vehicle’s performance.
In this installation, control units, power supply and other electronics were placed inside the vehicle while the rail measurement units themselves were installed under the train.
OWLS can also be delivered as a compact unit where all equipment is delivered in a unit that is installed under the train.
