Position of mast poles - Eurailscout

Position of mast poles

The position of the mast poles along the tracks is recognised automatically by laser-based systems and stored with the measuring and inspection data. The positions are shown in the resulting evaluation.
The pole recognition system consists of two recording units installed to the left and the right of the roof of the measuring car parallel to the bogie. Each recording unit consists of two laser distance sensors which point straight upwards. If both laser beams are refl ected by an object at almost the same time it can be assumed that the unit has recorded a registration arm and thus an overhead line support.
