The operation of the system is based on a simple transmit-receive confirmation protocol. An acoustic signal is generated and inserted in the rail at one location (transmitter), propagates along the rail, and is received at a remote location (receiver). The integrity of the rail between the transmitter and receiver is confirmed as long as an acceptable signal is received. Should the rail develop a clean break between the transmitter and receiver, the inserted signal will not be received, resulting in the triggering of an alarm.

The Ultrasonic Broken Rail Detector consists of the following major components:

  • Transmitter Module
  • Receiver Module
  • Cabinet with Power Supply and Communication Equipment
  • Ultrasonic Transducer and Cable
  • Rail Clamp
  • Alarm Terminal
