Trimble CouplerView-Pin System

F-type coupler securement inspection

Trimble® CouplerView®-Pin is an automatic coupler pin carrier plate inspection system that inspects F-type coupler securement mechanisms at mainline operational speeds.

Trimble CouplerView-Pin system utilizes high-speed and high-definition digital imaging together with illumination sources to produce multiple high resolution images of every coupler pin securement component for inspection.

As failure of F-type coupler securement mechanisms may cause a car (wagon) separation or train derailment at mainline speeds the automated identification of possible issues is highly beneficial to rail operators to minimize the incidents for greater operational efficiency.

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.


Trimble CouplerView-CrossKey system inspections include:

  • Classification of E-type and F-type couplers.
  • Missing coupler pin plate detection.
  • Leaning coupler pin plate detection.
  • Missing fasteners detection.
  • Rotated coupler pin plate detection.
  • Combination of any of the above.
