Trimble BrakeView-Disc System

Brake disc inspection

Trimble® BrakeView®-Disc is an automatic brake disc inspection system that inspects and measures brake discs at mainline operational speeds.

Trimble BrakeView-Disc system utilizes high-speed digital imaging together with laser based structural light and other illumination sources to automate brake disc inspection.

The information that BrakeView-Disc generates enables rolling stock operators to improve and optimize their maintenance processes. Worn or defective discs can be identified and maintained earlier, reducing costly incidents. Data driven predictive maintenance practices can be used to maximize component lifecycles and reduce maintenance costs.

Key Features

  • Sophisticated image processing algorithms to assess condition and report detected defects.
  • Processed data and images are integrated into the Trimble CMMS™ (Condition Monitoring Management System) software to provide web-based access for data visualization, alarm management, and data analytics.
  • Works in the toughest rail environments and extreme weather conditions at mainline operational speeds.
  • System installation does not require any major track modifications.

Inspections & Measurements

Trimble BrakeView-Disc system inspections and measurements include:

  • Disc thickness.
  • Disc flatness.
  • Alarms on disc thickness levels.
  • Missing disc detection.
  • Visual images of the disc and surrounding area.
