DIS Sensors recently released a case study outlining how the use of their dynamic inclinometers has improved the overall safety and working conditions for operators performing maintenance on rail infrastructure. They spoke with Bert Koerts, Co-owner of Koerts Techniek, about how he equips all of his machines with these inclinometers from DIS:
“Inclinometers in themselves are nothing new, but what makes these dynamic variants special is the fact that the tilt measurements are not affected when the vehicle is driven on the rails while in use. After all, that’s how our customers actually use our rail-infra platforms.” – Bert Koerts, Co-owner of Koerts Techniek
Typical sensors in the industry are susceptible to the motion of driving or other external factors. For example, this can include things like vibrations or shocks. But when using DIS Sensors inclinometers, the tilt measurements are not affected when the vehicle is driven on the rails while in use. This not only helps operators perform essential tasks with greater ease, but it also makes it easier for them to identify when the aerial platform they’re working on is unstable.
The control system of DIS dynamic inclinometers also allows for data logging. This feature enables end-users to precisely determine any circumstances at the time of an incident. Not only does this help from a legal perspective in the case of accidents, but it also gives operators a better understanding of what conditions to avoid and how to make potential improvements to the aerial platforms in the future.
