PMS II is a particularly handy and efficient solution for the digital acquisition of the rail cross profile. Only a few steps and the measuring system is ready for use. Operation is menu-driven via the docked display and operating unit “MPCe”. The measuring process is fully automatic and completed within 30 seconds. The measurement result is displayed immediately graphically and can then be stored on the internal SD card.
The detection of the rail profile is touching, ie with a high-precision sensor, the rail surface is scanned and transmitted the measurement data directly to the MPCe. The stored measurement files can then be transferred via SD card to an office computer. By means of the provided evaluation software “PMS-viewer” a detailed analysis of the measurement result is possible. Thus, one measurement can be directly compared with another or set in relation to a stored reference profile (target-actual comparison).
Optionally, the functionality of the PMS II can be extended. With the help of an integrated laser measuring unit, additional data on the quantity removal or the groove depth can be determined.
