Track Geometry



Track geometry measurement according to EN 13848

Latronix Track Geometry is a complete solution for measuring track geometry in accordance with EN 13848. The measurements are contactless, through an inertial-based measurement system and can thus deliver data for all important track geometry properties, high accuracy, and minimal maintenance.

The system can be permanently installed on dedicated measuring vehicles, trains in scheduled traffic as well as rail-borne construction machines. Furthermore, portable versions are available that are quickly installed where required.

Measurement and calculation

Measured parameters

According to EN13848:

  • Horizontal Rail Alignment (right / left rail)
  • Vertical Rail Alignment (right / left rail)
  • Gauge
  • Cant
  • Twist

Others (selection):

  • Curvature
  • Rates of change
  • TQI
  • TQC
  • Standard deviations
  • Number of single errors

More than track geometry

Latronix systems for track and catenary measurement are modular. Several measurements can be combined on one and the same vehicle, and several measurement techniques can be combined in the same physical unit.
