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 a special algorithm 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, the freight car or ultimately 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:

Through a defined area detection coupled with a temperature limit monitoring, storage areas with hazardous goods can be monitored and evaluated. This enables an area alarm when leaving 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 WS-B1 Wireless Sensor 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. The use of two TrackCube 6H4 AR and a special measuring algorithm ensures the working direction of the machine even when stationary.

Temperature monitoring:

The TSK-3 temperature sensor is our wired sensor solution for monitoring temperatures in ATEX zones. By means of defined limit values, exceeding or falling below these values 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, through transport interruptions, to the end of the transport, the exact current transport progress, condition and location are recorded.

Exact mileage calculation

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

load detection

The loading states “Full” or “Empty” are reliably detected with our WS-D1 Wireless sensor and enable statements on load-related mileage determination and transparency in wagon management.

shock detection

Shock detection immediately reports the event with the location when limits are exceeded and can also record the shock history for analysis.

Flat spot detection

Flat spots on impellers are detected by means of the Wireless
WS-D1 flat spot sensor
and reported via the telematics system. This function can be activated in addition to the load detection.

Transport of dangerous goods

TrackCube 6B Ex is a monitoring and locating system in explosion-proof design, suitable, for example, for operation on hazardous goods vehicles, such as compressed gas tank wagons and tank containers, and is certified in accordance with… 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 developed specifically for rail transport, algorithms take into account curve travel along the rail network and link position reports and information from mapped rail lines for calculation. This makes the plug calculation very accurate and within 1% deviation.

transport monitoring

Transport monitoring provides information about the current transport progress and the exact whereabouts and reports the start of the transport, interruptions, continuations and the end of the transport.

temperature monitoring

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

shock detection

Shock detection immediately reports the event with the location when limits are exceeded and can also record the shock history for analysis.

Tank storage concept for dangerous goods

Through a defined area detection coupled with a temperature limit monitoring, storage areas with hazardous goods can be monitored and evaluated. This also reports an area alarm in case of unauthorized leaving or entering.

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

Especially in this area, a smooth process is enormously important and can lead to considerable delays if misinformation is provided. To prevent these, it is important that the track-laying machines are delivered in the working direction. The TC 6D 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 mounting 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!

Public transport – public transport

GPS Gateway was developed specifically for use on locomotives, taking into account the high electromechanical and electromagnetic requirements of the system solution for locating locomotives in the application area ESF energy-saving driving. The system consists of a subrack, a DCDC converter, a GPS unit and a processor system. Rugged, rail-approved subracks feature a backplane to hold 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 stellt verifizierte Positionsdaten bereit. 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.
