Track measurement

Back to the list



Goldschmidt´s Trackscan Switch trolley is designed to measure the track and turnout geometry. The characteristic points of the turnout can be defined by the user. The measurement results can be read directly on the trolley’s display and save in memory. The Dari® software supplied with the trolley allows the user to further analyse the measurement results and generate different kind of reports. 

Measurement results such as values of width, cant, horizontal and vertical irregularities, covered distances and GPS positions are recorded in the device memory on a real-time basis. During turnout measurements, operator activates the turnout mode enabling the recording of measurement results related to groove widths and check-rail gauges. All measured parameters are recorded using a measurement increment of 31 mm.

The Trackscan Switch trolley meets the requirements of the EN 13848-4 standard. Measurement results generated by the trolley are consistent with the requirements of the Polish Railway Lines (PKP PLK). The trolley is supplied with the entire list of sets of characteristic points required by Internal Instruction Id-4.

The trolley is supplied with the Dari® software (for PCs) enabling, among other things, the graphic presentation and comparison of measurement results as well as the printing of measurement reports or calculating typical track quality factors. Measurement results are also available in the tabular form containing track defect locations. Measurement data can be exported in MS Word, MS Excel and PDF formats.



In addition, the turnout module of the Dari®software can be used to modify and create new sets of characteristic points, including information about measured parameters, nominal values and allowed tolerances in relation to various types of turnouts.
