DEVELOPMENT OF A DEVICE FOR THE DETECTION OF WHEELFLATS OF A CERTAIN SIZE. DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE JUL 400
The JUL 400 device developed by L.M. Ericsson, in conjunction with the Swedish State Railways, is for detecting flat wheels. It is based on the principle that a wheel with a flat loses contact with the rail briefly at speeds above 30 km/h. High-frequency signals are transmitted through test sections in each rail of a track with shot circuiting of these signals resulting from passage of each wheel. Any interruption of this short circuit produced by flats on wheel treads is interpreted in terms of the size of the defect.
