in the rail transport sector

Complete control

Monitoring and GPS tracking

Keep the overview

and always know when, what, where is happening!

Exact mileage calculation:

Using an algorithm specially developed for rail transport, we calculate the exact kilometers traveled along the rail network.

Transport monitoring:

Informs about the current transport progress or the exact whereabouts.

Shock detection:

Flat spots often lead to damage to the track on the freight wagon or ultimately to the goods being transported. With our 3-axis acceleration sensor, we register bumps and send notifications when limit values are exceeded.

Load detection:

Load statuses full or empty are reliably detected with our WS-D1 wireless sensor and serve the purpose of transparency in fleet management.

Tank storage concept for dangerous goods:

Storage areas with dangerous goods can be monitored and evaluated through a defined area detection coupled with a temperature limit value monitoring. Area alarm when exiting or entering an area.

Handbrake detection:

Track construction machines, MFS wagons or similar cause flat spots and damage to the track if they are pulled by the locomotive with the handbrake on. The wireless sensor WS-B1 detects the status of the handbrake and informs the responsible persons.

Working direction detection:

The working direction and the position of the track construction machine is important information for track construction and must be visible before the machine is delivered. By using two TrackCube 6H4 and a special measuring algorithm, the working direction of the machine is also guaranteed when stationary.

Temperature monitoring:

The TSK-3 temperature sensor is our wired sensor solution for monitoring temperatures in ATEX zones. Using defined limit values, exceeding or falling below can lead to an immediate alarm message.

Robust und langlebig

Unsere Hardware wurde speziell für den Einsatz im Schienenverkehr entwickelt und garantiert mit der robusten Bauweise extrem hohe Langlebigkeit.

rail freight transport

COGNID develops powerful telematics systems especially for the demands of the railway sector, equipped with the latest technology, efficient energy management using solar cells, rechargeable batteries and batteries and the latest radio technologies (LTE, UMTS, GPRS, GNSS) for data transmission. Sensors can be retrofitted on a modular basis and enable the Track Cube 6H4 to improve wagon management and, with the railway-specific functions, provide useful support for logistics and service tasks during ongoing operations. Essential components are the mileage calculation, transport monitoring, load detection and sensor information.

We have the right solution

Transport monitoring

From the beginning of the transport to transport interruptions to the end of the transport, the exact current transport progress, condition and whereabouts are recorded.

Exact mileage calculation

A special algorithm, which was developed for rail traffic, calculates the mileage along the rail network exactly.

Load detection

The loading states “full” or “empty” are reliably detected with our WS-D1 wireless sensor and enable statements to be made about the load-related mileage determination. And transparency in wagon management.

Shock detection

If limit values are exceeded, the shock detection immediately reports that the location has been exceeded and can also record the shock course for analysis.

Flat spot detection (WS-D1 and not TC 6H4)

Flat spots on wheels are detected during transport by a sensor on a bogie and reported via the telematics system. This function can be activated in addition to the load detection.

dangerous goods transport

TrackCube 6B Ex is a monitoring and locating system in an explosion-proof design, for example for operation on hazardous goods vehicles such as pressurized gas tank wagons and tank containers and is acc. certified according to the ATEX directive.

It is possible to connect sensors via the radio interface with the ITSS IF2 standard, as well as to use certified wired sensors.

Certified sensors can be connected for use in zone 1 and there is also the option of using a sensor for zone 0 via cable connection.

The functions correspond to the possibilities as with TrackCube 6H4.

We have the right solution

Exact mileage calculation

In the mileage calculation specially developed for rail traffic, algorithms take cornering along the rail network into account and link position reports and information from mapped rail routes for the calculation. As a result, the distance calculation is very precise and is in the range of 1% deviation.

Transport monitoring

The transport monitoring provides the current transport progress and the exact whereabouts and reports the start of the transport, the interruptions, onward journeys and the end of the transport.

Temperature monitoring

The TSK 3 temperature sensor is the wired sensor solution for monitoring temperatures in ATEX zones. Using defined limit values, exceeding or falling below can lead to an immediate alarm message.

Shock detection

If limit values are exceeded, the shock detection immediately reports that the location has been exceeded and can also record the shock course for analysis.

Tank storage concept for dangerous goods

Storage areas with dangerous goods can be monitored and evaluated through a defined area detection coupled with a temperature limit value monitoring. Area alarms are also reported in the event of unauthorized exit or entry.

Explosionsgeschützte GPS Ortung

Extra für den Einsatz in der Zone 1, gem. der ATEX Richtlinie zertifiziert und für den Betrieb an Gefahrgutfahrzeugen, wie Druckgaskesselwagen und Tankcontainer entwickelt.

Arbeitsrichtungserkennung

Unsere Hardware ist eine Eigenentwicklung und wurde speziell zur Ortung von Maschinen konzipiert deren Arbeitsrichtung ermittelt werden muss.

track construction

(With working direction detection)

A smooth process is extremely important in this area in particular and can lead to considerable delays in the event of incorrect information. In order to prevent this, it is important that the track construction machines are delivered in the working direction. The TC 6H4 with working direction detection provides this data quickly, reliably and efficiently. This makes it an essential part of a track construction machine.

The advantage: easy installation and 100% reliable detection of the working direction.

Thanks to the highly complex algorithms, we can reliably and quickly identify the working direction, even when the machine is stationary!

Local public transport – public transport

GPS Gateway was specially developed for use on locomotives, taking into account the high electromechanical and electromagnetic requirements. System solution for locating locomotives, application area ESF Energy-saving driving style. The system consists of a subrack, a DCDC converter, a GPS unit and a processor system. Robust, railway-approved subracks have a backplane for accommodating the system assemblies. The cables to the system modules are routed from the front, via the connectors in the front panels.

Verified position data

GPS Gateway provides verified position data. The received GPS data is checked, processed and forwarded to external control systems after correction.

Plausible data for evaluation

The GPS data is filtered via the integrated processor system and undergoes several plausibility checks. These software filters ensure that the quality of the GPS data is always consistent (no inaccurate or incorrect data).

Service interface

A service interface (RS 232) enables the functions of the GPS module to be configured for the respective application.
