Optical Sensors Improve Railway Safety

A string of fiber-optic sensors running along a 36-km stretch of high-speed commuter railroad lines connecting Hong Kong to mainland China has taken more than 10 million measurements over the past few years in a demonstration that the system can help safeguard commuter trains and freight cars against accidents. Attuned to the contact between trains and tracks, the sensors can detect potential problems like excessive vibrations, mechanical defects or speed and temperature anomalies. The system is wired to warn train operators immediately of such problems so that they can avoid derailments or other accidents, said Hwa-yaw Tam of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, who will describe the technology and its test run next week at The Optical Society's (OSA) Annual Meeting, Frontiers in Optics (FiO) 2013, being held Oct. 6-10 in Orlando, Fla.

Flat-pack 19" racks reduce installation time by 75%

Flat-pack 19" racks reduce installation time by 75%
Two new train lines are currently under construction on the Metro system in Barcelona. The lines, which will boast driverless technology, are fully automated and will stretch almost 30 miles, with 52 stations along the way. The automation technology requires that each station hosts its own data centre with up to ten 47U, 19" rack cabinets installed. Due to the limited access to the stations the contractor responsible for the project was eager to find a solution which reduced installation time while providing totally reliable housing once complete.

Hylec-APL Helps The Rail Industry Stay On Track With Regulations

Hylec-APL Helps The Rail Industry Stay On Track With Regulations
Specifying electrical components for applications which will be used within the rail industry can be a daunting task. Not only can the operating environments be extremely hard wearing, with high volumes of dust and debris found trackside, but there are many safety certifications which must be met due to the inherent dangers of carrying high volumes of passengers at high speeds surrounded by high voltages. Even components as simple as the humble cable gland need to conform to relevant certifications.
