Sensors for Trams
Robust and reliable
Pick-up sensors from DEUTA have an extraordinary durability, as they operate contact-free and therefore almost wear-free. The measurement takes place by scanning a gear or magnet wheel, whereas the sensor is mounted in a defined distance over the wheel. DEUTA offers three types of sensors.
DEUTA axle-mounted sensors are driven via a mechanical coupling on the axle of the vehicle. Impervious to dirt and vibration, they are virtually maintenance-free and achieve high resolution even at low rotational speeds. The traditional AC generator generates a voltage and frequency that is proportional to the rotational speed which can be fed directly to a converter or indicator via a cable, without the need for an additional power supply.
