Abstract

Historically, disparate devices have been utilised for longterm monitoring, field installation and data logging due to their different requirements in the railway area. However, there is a strong case for creating condition monitoring equipment and the associated infrastructure to allow multiple modes of operation, including real-time monitoring, real-time data logging and remote condition monitoring. Smart Component Technologies Ltd. has developed a multi-faceted ecosystem to allow condition monitoring devices to operate in multiple modes of operation without the need for modification or reconfiguration. In this paper, the requirements for these working modes are discussed in detail and the state-of-the-art wireless technology, cloud based services and smart portable devices are utilised to build such a system. On this basis, an implementation for measuring the clamping force is presented with the capability for long-term monitoring with a low sample rate, live data view during installation, and short bursts of data logging with a high sample rate.
