Nexala - A Trimble Company C2M Component Condition Monitoring

Nexala C2M

Component Condition Monitoring

Nexala C2M provides a comprehensive condition monitoring system for vehicle components including wheelsets, axle, brakes, shoegear and pantographs.

The system provides a comprehensive condition monitoring capability—identifying and reporting on specific defects, wear detection, and automates maintenance planning.

C2M provides a combination of both shore based software and interfaces to track side devices and hand-held measuring devices.

This shore-based system provides a comprehensive view of a component’s condition across an entire fleet.

Nexala C2M proactively analyses and detects anomalies with particular component behaviour and uses this information to identify the impact on maintenance and service for the entire fleet.

Benefits

  • Improves component life by monitoring rogue behaviour and determining proactive maintenance actions
  • Improve fleet availability through efficient component maintenance planning
  • Improved procurement planning through better understanding of on-going condition & utilisation of components
  • Improve safety by constant monitoring of key safety related component conditions

Features

  • Integrates with trackside and depot equipment including wheel lathes lathes, trackside measuring devices, handheld measuring devices and on-train devices
  • Provides a fleet summary view of the entire fleet identifying the immediate problem areas  (e.g., wheel-sets, axles, brakes, shoe-gear and pantographs etc)
  • Provides interactive & up to date condition monitoring and detection through the definition of rules and alarms using an intuitive graphical user interface
  • Detailed information on every component measurement on the unit is provided
  • Warning and danger level thresholds are specified for key measurements and the system automatically identifies and generates alerts when these thresholds are exceeded
  • A procurement plan can be generated for each component type based on the typical replacement life of the component calculated by the system
