Practical, intelligent and efficient – for digital track and switch inspection MessReg CDM is the benchmark!

The globally tried and proven measuring system provides automatic continuous data capture with impressive levels of precision: Pre-defined measuring points are automatically detected and stored, and any tolerance infringements are colour-highlighted while the measurement is in progress. This means it takes just a few minutes to fully check a switch or a section of rail. Comments can be entered at any time, including indications of the track’s condition at specific positions. The measurement report is evaluated and outputted in digital form immediately after the measurement procedure.

Continuous measurement with MessReg CDM also provides comprehensive track documentation. Alongside the pre-defined measuring points, the track gauge and cant values are recorded automatically at 5 mm intervals.

The measuring system is rounded off by an all-weather computer notebook running a powerful software package. The software includes the actual data capture program, graphical data display and evaluation programs, and professional track and switch management functionality.

MessReg CTS is a mobile digital measuring system for the measurement of track gauge, cant and twist. Thanks to its automatic continuous data capture it measures long track sections highly efficiently.

The accessory “MPC” notebook enables users to enter comments during the measurement procedure, such as to document any irregularities or damage to the track specific to the exact position. Optionally, GPS data can be integrated, too. The measurement results are immediately available for local evaluation.

The version MessReg CTS-T is equipped with integrated partition. Thus, the measuring device can be folded to very compact dimensions in three quick manual movements.

The new system standard for digital switch inspection

Measured track parameters:
> Track gauge 
> Flangeway clearance 
> Check rail gauge
> Back-to-back distance 
> Cant
> Twist

“MessReg” has been a byword for quality in digital switch inspection to DB standard for over 15 years. The MessReg PTP II is the third generation of the tried and proven equipment series, and sets new standards.

The core of the measuring system is the “MPCe”, a computerised display and operator control unit specially developed to meet track bed requirements. The powerful MPCe is highly ergonomic and efficient. And with useful additional functionality such as day-date, Bluetooth and a text editor it offers new features which its predecessor models – the “MessReg 2000” and “MessReg PTP” – were unable to provide.
Another key system benefit:

MessReg PTP II conforms to all the latest DB requirements and guidelines without restriction. It is compatible with the DB IIS system and is officially DB-approved.

RCAD

Measured track parameters:

> Flangeway clearance 
> Check rail gauge
> Back-to-back distance 
> Cant

 

Digital switch gauge- and cant measuring device

The benefits of digital measuring with RCAD are convincing: the use of the device is simplified and an even higher level of accuracy and safety is offered, too.

RCAD shows the measured values on a clear LCD-display. This means that all 5 measurement parameters are easily seen at a glance while reading errors or inaccuracies are successfully avoided. Because of the back-illuminated LCD-display measurement operations in darkness are also supported.
