POWERVE® strives to continuously improve and achieves impressive performance that is comparable with the highly accurate static fixed weighing systems commonly used within the rail industry

We’re glad to introduce POWERVE®, the most innovative and hand-portable wheel force measuring system.

It is able to statically measure the vertical forces on each wheel and wheelset of any rolling stock type and determine the vehicle’s balance health.

POWERVE has been officially certified as a system compliant with the requirements of EN 15654-2: 2019 “Railway applications – Measurement of vertical forces on wheels and wheelsets – Part 2: Test in workshop for new, modified and maintained vehicles” and EN 50215: 2011 “Railway applications – Rolling stock – Testing of rolling stock on completion of construction and before entry into service” (only for the parts relating to rolling stock weighing and the vertical load produced by each wheel on the track ), so you can be sure that you’re in safe hands with POWERVE®.

POWERVE IS THE IDEAL SOLUTION FOR

  • Testing & Commissioning of new rolling stock or post-revamping rolling stock
  • Workshop or in-field maintenance
  • Balancing suspensions to equalise vertical wheel forces
  • Reducing derailments risk, especially on twisted track
  • Verification of the vertical forces distribution on the driving wheels
  • Verification of the balance after installation of new equipment (e.g. on On-Track-Machines)
  • Verification of the distribution of the vertical forces due to non-uniform wear of the wheel diameters or faulty suspensions.
  • Verification of the distribution of the transported cargo
  • Verification of the set-up of the rolling stock after derailment

SAFETY EQUIPMENT

More than just a weighing equipment, POWERVE® can be considered a safety equipment for the railway industry, being able to instantly measure the rolling stock’s vertical wheel force distribution, detecting  potential unbalancing issues.

WHEEL/RAIL INTERFACE

One of the most interesting system features is its ability to directly measure the same wheel force distribution that any rolling stock loads on the track. In fact, it is the unique portable system able to perform the measurements at the wheel/rail interface.
