and into the gage of the track. If the train is operating

     at track speed, this can result in a derailment.

     CouplerView-Pin is designed to operate on passing

     trains at normal track speeds of up to 60 mph. This

     is a machine vision system, which utilizes high

     speed digital line scan imaging cameras to acquire

     multiple images of every coupler pin securement for

     inspection.



     CouplerView-Pin systems are installed on steel ties

     (sleepers) supplied by Beena Vision. Cameras and the

     illumination system are enclosed in sealed steel boxes

     mounted on the gauge side of the supplied steel tie.

     The securement component images are analyzed for

     possible failure, deformation, and missing fasteners,

     and plates.
