CAT

The CAT is a portable, hand-operated instrument that weighs less than 20kg in its carrying case. It is typically used for quality assurance of rail reprofiling works and to measure acoustic roughness of rails.

Bi-CAT

RailMeasurement have developed the bi-CAT to give an instrument that measures two rails simultaneously with the same accuracy as the CAT, and which can still be transported, assembled and used by a single person.

RCA

The RCA measures irregularities, in particular corrugation and longer waves, from a vehicle. It is typically mounted on a rail reprofiling train to assist with quality assurance of reprofiling works and used at speeds in the range 3-15km/h

HSRCA

The HSRCA measures irregularities at typical line speeds from a moving train. Irregularities include corrugation, welds, joints and acoustic roughness. HSRCA operate at relatively low speeds of less than 80km/h up to speeds of more than 150km/h.

TriTops

TriTops has been developed to measure irregularities on wheels that are of interest for vehicle maintenance and wheel/rail noise. These irregularities include acoustic roughness, corrugation and out-of-round.
