LaserSweep

LaserSweep

Lightweight, industry-recognised portable measurement device incorporating platform edge capability.

LaserSweep TM has long been a trusted and versatile portable measurement device used by rail operators including Network Rail, London Underground and Rail consultancies.

The device is used to determine the spatial position of railway structures and features with reference to the rails. Its output are used to determine clearances on both mainline networks and metro systems in accordance with GIRT7073 “Requirements for the Position of Infrastructure and for Defining and Maintaining Clearances”.

How it works

 

The system is rail-mounted and enables the user to undertake fast and accurate spatial measurements of a range of railway infrastructure. This includes tunnels, overbridges, underbridges, platforms, signals, station canopies and discrete points such as OLE, cable brackets, and platform edges.

The system is supplied with a rugged, handheld device as standard, which is installed with the LaserSweepTM operating software and features Bluetooth® connectivity. When combined with the lithium internal battery, this ensures a cable free measurement system highly suited to the rail environment.

Full profiles, part profiles and single points can easily be captured, ensuring efficient use of time on track.

The output from the LaserSweepTM is directly compatible with our ClearRouteTM 2 software, for analysis and investigation of vehicle clearances following the survey.
