The difficulty in determining from a chart recording whether a high reading is a normally operating roller bearing or an overheated friction bearing is minimized by the use of the ES hotbox detector. A major feature of the ES hotbox detector is its sophisticated electronics for discriminating between heat signals from friction and roller bearings. Thus the number of false train stops caused by the different operating temperatures of these bearings can be reduced.
