Catenary Measurement

Wear and Geometry


Measurement of catenary and carrying wire

Latronix Catenary Measurement is a series of solutions for measuring catenary and carrying wire. With our system for geometry measurement, the height and stagger of the overhead contact wire are identified. The measurements are related top of the rail. The measurement takes place contactless at up to 300 km / h and the measuring system can simultaneously measure the geometry of the messenger wire.

With a wear measuring system, the contact wire wear is identified with high accuracy. The measuring system can measure the width of the worn part of the contact wire and thereby calculate the wear and identify damaged sections and point wear on the contact wire.
