Minimize risks by monitoring different issues such as bogie instability, wheel unloading and track problems.
Accurate forecasting enables optimized maintenance schedules. This leads to a higher availability and punctuality of the ﬂeet.
Sensors and safety systems
Televic Rail has 20 years of experience in designing and manufacturing bogie sensor and control systems, amongst other for tilting systems and the Bombardier FlexxTronic platforms.
Worldwide, thousands of Televic Rail sensors and safety systems are mounted on bogies and in car bodies. Today our sensor subsystems are used as part of:
- Control systems to control tilting, active radial steering, active lateral suspension, and selective door opening
- Monitoring bogie parameters such as vibration and temperature
- Safety systems used for bogie instability detection, gauge infringement, wheel unloading and side wind monitoring, including SIL2 implementations.

Wheel ﬂats and wheel bearing issues are the main causes for maintenance interventions and potential safety risks.
Track joint issues, ripples and track wear can cause bogie wear and damage.
When not detected in an early phase, damage to bogie elements such as yaw dampers, motors and gear boxes can result in important downtime of the vehicles or serious safety risks.
