ROWE HANKINS INTRODUCES ITS RANGE OF PRODUCTS TO IMPROVE FLEET RELIABILITY

Improving reliability: Rowe Hankins is a leading supplier of speed sensors.

Rail vehicles have become more complex and more connected every year. Operating a mixed fleet of older vehicles with modern, connected intelligent rolling stock can highlight a gap in the quality and volume of data offered by legacy equipment when required for maintenance optimisation and effective use of maintenance assets.

The need for reliable, bespoke and compact sensors presents design challenges during upgrade of older vehicles when considering the age of legacy equipment to be monitored, level of approval needed, weight and power consumption. Monitoring, recording and reporting individual component performance reduces costs, manages sufficiency and improves safety.

Reliable sensors are vital for providing high quality reliable signals to on-train systems, allowing early detection of faults, resulting in better control of asset utilisation and maintenance scheduling.
