Electrified Rail

Rail Vision is possibly the only company to provide comprehensive solutions for third rail inspection using visual technologies. High speed linescan cameras and lasers are used to inspect third rail for a wide range of faults including the detection of missing or broken components such as pods, measurement of vertical and horizontal misalignment of third rail at joints, measurement of join gaps and measurement of vertical and horizontal distance of third rail from running rail along the track. Thermal and infrared imaging is also used to detect abnormal heat signatures.

Misalignment defects can be detected with an accuracy of up to 0.1 mm at line speeds.
