Trimble BrakeView-Pad System

Brake pad inspection

Trimble® BrakeView®-Pad is an automatic brake pad inspection system that inspects and measures brake pads at mainline operational speeds.

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

The information that BrakeView-Pad generates enables rolling stock operators to improve and optimize their maintenance processes. Worn or defective pads 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-Pad system inspections and measurements include:

  • Pad thickness.
  • Alarm on pad thickness levels.
  • Missing pad detection.
  • Broken pad detection.
  • Visual image of the pad and surrounding area.
