Control of the Slab Track at high speed

Revolution of a measuring principle

  • Trusted VMS work procedure (long-chord method) – with only one measurement trolley
  • Combined survey of relative and absolute track geometry in one run
  • Absolute track accuracy up to 1 mm
  • Unrivalled survey performance up to 4000 m/h
  • No geodetic skills for operator required
  • Up to 90 % cost savings compared to traditional methods

Modular system design

  • Measuring trolley consisting of precision sensors for gauge, superelevation and distance and ruggedized notebook
  • AMU 1030 (Amberg Measuring Unit) for unrivalled kinematic measurement precision
  • Two control point (CP) measuring devices of choice
    • Tachymeter (IMS 1000): single and multi CP mode
    • Profiler 110 FX (IMS 3000): single CP mode
  • Modular system upgrading possibilities
  • Easy handling, simple transportation
  • LED-lighting for secure work at night
  • Robust hardware design for hard environment

Single control point mode

  • High performance for long track sections
  • First choice for measurements during short track closures
  • Measuring performance up to 4000 m/h, typically 2500 m/h
  • Distance between CP measurements up to 500 m
  • Fully automatic relative control point measurement with IMS 1000
  • No loss of accuracy due to refraction

No line of sight required

  • Multi control point mode
  • For demanding project accuracies
  • Tachymeter setup with multiple control points ensures highest accuracy and reliability
  • Complete setup control out of Amberg Rail software
  • Measuring performance up to 1500 m/h, typically 1000 m/h
  • Distance between Tachymeter resections up to 500 m
  • Increased efficiency without Tachymeter leveling
  • Minimization of potential control point errors
