Traction Gel Applicator Monitoring System

The Traction Gel Applicator (TGA) applies a Traction Gel to the rails to combat the build up of leaf contamination.

The gel is picked up by the train wheels and carried along, treating both the wheels and the rail.

The DAQ Studio provides a system that monitors the applicator system, measuring such perameters as:

  • Gel level
  • Gel flow
  • Pump operation
  • battery status
  • wind turbin
  • solar cells charging state
  • temperature
  • humidity
