Level crossing monitoring
LXAlert can be used to detect barrier issues, defects in movement time, motor performance, damping, wind deflection, excessive vibration/oscillation, and slow/juddering movement.
The output from LXAlert is presented via the common display platform AssetView, which is in widespread use in the UK and overseas. You can access your data anywhere with an internet connection, including on mobile devices.
How it works
The LXAlert hardware uses a combination of relay digital events and analogue sensors to measure the key factors of the level crossing equipment and sequence of every operation. You can then see long term trends and statistics that are much more informative than a one-off measurement during attended testing.
The entire crossing sequence is timed and quantified precisely. Other functional tests such as LCU or protecting signal tests can be correlated from event data or performed remotely by the signaller or Level Crossing Inspector.
Road light current sensors prove that the correct current is supplied to the lights and the audible alarm. Battery sensors monitor the voltage and charging current to prove their condition. Any failing cell would be identified by an excessive voltage drop and changes in charging current. It can be used to detect barrier issues, defects in movement time, motor performance, damping, wind deflection, excessive vibration/oscillation, and slow/juddering movement.
