In-Motion Rail Weigh
A rail station owner wanted to collect data on the load profiles for railcars as they were entering into the station in-motion. The customer wanted to build their own low cost set-up using components from Interface Inc. and their existing PC setup for the purpose of logging weight load characteristics in order to diagnose possible side to side loading issues, overload issues, wheel flats or wheel impact issues, at any railcar speed.
Learn how this was accomplished using Interface Model 2400 Standard Stainless Steel Load Cells and Model BSC4-USB Multi-Channel Bridge Amplifier & PC Interface Modules.
