In Germany alone, around 2.6 billion journeys were made by commuters, business travellers and holiday-makers on the rail network in 2019, the last year before the COVID-19 pandemic. The desire for greater mobility, fast availability, high comfort and efficient environmental protection is increasingly raising the significance of transport technology, and rail transport in particular.
The sensor technology needs to work absolutely reliably under different operating conditions – not just in high-speed trains but also in regional trains, multiple units, locomotives, underground trains, commuter trains, trams and hybrid buses. EPHYMESS temperature sensors, speed sensors and oil level gauges meet these requirements and have now proved themselves in internationally renowned trains around the world.
The strain of impacts and tough environmental conditions demands a special internal structure for the sensor elements in order to ensure the necessary availability of the signals. In this technologically demanding area in particular, EPHYMESS has developed sophisticated expertise and gathered valuable experience over many years.
Designed especially for rail vehicles, the modular system enables a wide range of sensor technology to be integrated into a sensor system quickly and at low cost. As well as the classic Pt100 temperature sensors, speed sensors are another component of the EPHYMESS sensor concept. The individual modules can be combined to form a fully assembled multi-arm wire harness.
