Monitoring of Driveline Components and Inboard Bearings with RailBAM-IB

Uwe Kopke, Chief Engineer, Wabtec Control Systems 

Speaker Biography | Company Profile

  • For twenty years, RailBAM systems, mounted beside the railway track, have successfully monitored axle bearings of rolling stock, alerted to defects and thereby protected operations.
  • In recent years, this proven concept has been ‘turned on its side’ and mounted in between the rails, to form RailBAM-IB, in order to look up at driveline components, such as traction motor and U-tube bearings, as well as inboard axle bearings used on a variety of passenger vehicles.
  • RailBAM-IB is integrated into the FleetONE database solution that supports all WCS systems of the TrackIQ portfolio, as well as third-party systems, which enables analytics to alert the system owners to problems in the early stages of development – examples for driveline component defects will be presented.
