52PL WIM systems significantly contribute to:

  • Improve track safety
  • Reduce track wear
  • Improve turn-around time
  • Improve fleet management
  • Increase revenue generation by providing paid, reliable and certified weighing service to track usage

Indian Railways and Private industries employ 52PL WIM systems to weigh wagons coupled and in-motion for safety and commercial purposes, such as:

  • Gross weigh trains on mainline tracks at speeds of up to 15km/h
  • Detect damaging overloaded wagons, axles and wheels
  • Detect imbalanced loads (end to end and side to side) for safety purposes
  • Determining toll and fine charges for generation of revenue
  • Invoicing commercial transactions (in accordance with RDSO guidelines)
  • Recognise mixed types of rolling stock with various numbers of axles, without operator intervention
  • Automatically discriminate between wagons and locomotives when only weights of wagons need to be recorded
  • Transmit data to a host computer for further processing
