Measurement Systems for Railway

Measurement technology in the railway sector faces its own special challenges: decentralized, distributed and synchronous data acquisition over thousands of channels – both inside and outside the rail vehicle – as well as direct reading of industry-specific bus systems, such as the Multifunction Vehicle Bus (MVB).

Engineers in the railway sector demand robust and durable measurement hardware systems which, supported by intelligent interaction with software solutions, deliver real-time results and allow the user to easily create reports and analyses.

For more than 15 years, imc Meßsysteme GmbH has been creating tailored products and solutions that meet these high demands throughout the whole life cycle of rolling stock – from the development phase of a rail vehicle through prototype testing, performance acceptance tests, investigations for improvements and routine monitoring during operation to tests performed on the tracks and other infrastructure.
