Dragging Object Detector

Dragging Object Detector is used to detect the low level hanging parts on the moving train. Cases such as loose hose, loose tarpaulin sheets are a potential risk on the live track and can cause damage to the sleepers and lead to derailment. These low level hanging parts are detected mechanically (by using a sensing plate which is slightly above the rail level) or optically

Salient Features

  • Fail Proof Mechanical Design for Detection System
  • Automatic identification of engine/wagon/coach having the hanging object & its position from the engine
  • Two stage protection system to protect sensing elements
