What makes the Trackside run smoothly?
In order to facilitate railway traffic networks such as trains, railroad, track switches, control cabinets (supply power, etc…) and control rooms, the ability to continuously monitor and maintain track conditions is required.
In addition the railway industry is utilizing IoT technology to increase the efficiency of train operations by not only providing services to reduce congestion, but also enabling timely facility investment and maintenance.
In the advanced and complex IoT industry, it is also important to understand and control the electrical signals flow in to each device.
The Need for CT on Trackside & The Role of J&D CT
J&D Current Transducers detects the current flow and changes or abnormal current to determine the correct signal of the current so that the railway network equipment can operate smoothly and without problems. This enables continuous and reliable information transmission and sharing with each other within the railway network. Therefore, CT will play an important role in transmitting information in railroad networks by accurately grasping electrical signals.
This serves as a preventive diagnosis so that it can occur in railway operations such as incorrect information transmission to the control room or late changeover.
