Wheel Impact Load Detector:








The WILD system has been supplied by M/s. Apna Technologies & Solutions Ltd, Chennai, on 13.12.07. The system was installed in between TIM and NKDO of GY-GTL section on up main line at the Km No. 437/3-2.

WILD- Wheel Impact Load Detector is an indigenously developed product that helps in scientifically to detect wheel flats in rolling stock.

WILD is high reliable system that does not require manual intervention, WILD uses the high impact loading on the rails to detect the wheel flats. The detection is online and the reports generated are communicated wirelessly through GPRS.

System software is highly customizable and is capable of indicating the fault on the exact axle, detecting defective wagons, speed of the axles, type of wagons etc, while taking about 10 to 15 minutes for analysis and report generation and sending the report to the central server. Thus the report for a passing train is available within minutes of the train

crossing the system.

Various alarm levels for various maintenance levels are possible with features like alarm intimation through SMS. System can store reports for a maximum of 20,000 trains for each installation.

The WILD system is being monitored in the Rolling Stock Control round the clock. When every any defective wheel comes the same information will be given to the next train examination point i.e. at GY which is 23 KM away from the WILD site. There the defective wheels are being examined critically and depending on the nature of defect they are taking decision to allow or detach the defective wheel wagon/coach.

All the information of maintenance and critical alarms is being fed into the computer and maintaining a database of the WILD alarms. The information is being sent monthly to the RDSO/LKO, Railway Board for their analysis and modifying the alarms limits.
