Brief description

The newest member of the COGNID sensor family is here!

The WS-B1 sensor helps to detect the handbrake position. This makes it possible to quickly detect applied handbrake positions shortly after the start of the journey and to track the generation of flat spots on equipped wagons. By communicating with the TrackCube 6 series, information about a handbrake being applied at the start of transport is immediately transmitted to the portal during travel detection. The digital support noticeably shortens the duration of departure checks.
