DMA’s Pantograph Uplift Measurement System (UPL) measures wire uplift, train speed, and wind speed in both directions using an optical, non-contact system mounted on an existing or dedicated catenary pole. Measurements that exceed specified limits trigger an alarm message. The UPL is installed aside the track at a safe distance from the catenary wires so maintenance can be performed safely and without track possession.
Measurements with train speeds up to 200km/h
Measurements performed day and night
Data integration with existing asset management systems
