Disruptive drone approach for the inspection and monitoring of railways
The tCat is a LiDAR gauge for rail OLE (catenary) measurements
Auscultator of bimodal and contactless catenary, comprising: # – horizontal movement and measurement system, with horizontal movement subsystem, linear displacer (7) perpendicular to the track width; measured horizontal distance subsystem; subsystem detection of the inner face of each rail; and control subsystem, for systems integration, implementation of the application and communication with the operator. # – vertical measurement system. # – installation assistance system that projects laser lines for reference to the installer and correctly position the catenary with respect to the center of the track. # – And control system, for systems integration, implementation of the application and communication with the operator.
OBJECT OF THE INVENTION The present invention can be included in the technical field of rail transport, in particular, within the field of installation and maintenance of overhead contact lines (LAC).More specifically, the object of the invention is a measuring device, for measuring, without contact, LAC parameters, which has great speed and precision in measurement.
Catenary and vehicle maintenance device that incorporates the same. A device for the maintenance of catenaries is described, which allows cleaning the cables of the same on the one hand and at the same time allows greasing or application of different products such as antifreeze and which incorporates a series of brushes responsible for grease the wiring when passing these between the bristles of the brush while it is embedded in a fluid such as grease; given that the state in which said grease is found is of vital importance for its correct application, also keeping the fluid in optimal conditions for its application thanks to its temperature control. It also details a vehicle that incorporates said device attached to it to carry out maintenance work.
