MEASUREMENT OF TRAIN SPEED AND LENGTH, THE NUMBER OF AXLES AND WAGONS, AND WAGON IDENTIFICATION BY HIGH FREQUENCY CIRCUITS

A double symmetrical circuit is used which is supplied in the centre by a high frequency generator (40 to 80 kHZ) and closed at both ends by receivers. When the circuits are short-circuited by the axles of a train, the voltage and current intensity indicated train speed variations in speed along the entire circuit, train length and the number of axles. The main categories of rolling stock can even be distinguished (locomotives, coaches, bogie and axle wagons) by the space between axles. The author describes the principles of this equipment and suggests using it as a passive detector of information on train running for control desks. As such, they could replace the active transmitters on trains.
