The problems associated with wheel slip of rail vehicles are minimized with the use of axle mounted detectors on each track. These detectors are designed to control axle behavior by the application or release of brakes to prevent sliding. The system consists of a detector fitted to the driving axle box and a pneumatic relay on each track which are connected by flexible air hoses.
