The new GEISMAR EMERALD track parameter measurement module is an ideal asset for track inspection and safety. Towed by a light rail vehicle or a road-rail vehicle, it allows to moderate investments by completing the existing inspection equipment fleet while bringing simplicity, performance and ergonomics to the measurement. Recently well welcomed in Canada, the EMERALD is starting to be talked about in other parts of the world.
Have you ever tried and adopted the AMBER electronic ruler to measure track parameters? If so, you will adopt the new EMERALD measurement module recently tested on Canadian railways.
Imagine yourself comfortably in your hi-rail pickup. In addition to inspecting and transporting material, your objective is to control and measure a critical section of your network. You then quickly reach the point of intervention by road. Once you reach the track you would line the truck up with the track, lower the hi-rail and move off the crossing. Where you would then lower the Emerald onto the track, connect the tow bar, and antenna and connect the Emerald with the PDA via Bluetooth, set up a job on the PDA. You are now ready to move up to 20 km/h on the tracks while viewing and recording the various parameters of the track:
- Travelling distance
Reducing the presence of operators on the tracks, the EMERALD is therefore a solution that improves safety conditions while accurately measuring track parameters. Compact and ergonomic, it will allow you to better understand your rail network while complementing the uses of your rolling stock. In particular, it is compatible with products designed and manufactured by GEISMAR factories:
- light rail vehicles (VIGILIS 100 / VIGILIS 200 / VIGILIS 300 / VIGILIS 400);
- road-rail vehicles (V2R PICK-UP);
- road-rail excavators (KGT).
By modulating your investments, the EMERALD is your ally to upgrade your existing equipment and gain versatility. Recently, networks in Brazil, Australia and the United States have shown interest in this new solution from the GEISMAR measurement range.
