Wayside Car Undercarriage Inspection System

Trimble® CSCView® system undercarriage imaging and automated inspection system produces high quality images of the structural components of railcars (wagons) and locomotives at mainline operational speeds. The system is highly effective for the inspection of all undercarriage components for passenger and freight trains.

CSCView automates the inspection of undercarriage components such as brake rigging components, center and side sill, couplers and coupler components, jacking plate, and more.

  • Couplers
  • Brake hose
  • Brake rigging components including brake beam
  • Coupler securement
  • Draft gear carrier
  • Axle surface
  • Locomotive gear case
  • R-clips
  • Hopper doors
  • Center sill
  • Side sill
  • Cross bearers
  • Body bolster

Dramatic time and cost savings, versus manual inspections

Excellent image quality to confirm if bolts or yoke pins are missing. Complete inspections quicker, minimizing time taken, costs, and issues that disrupt service.

Rolling stock stays in service for longer

With accurate measurements at mainline operational speeds there is minimal disruption to rolling stock schedules.

Limits risk to personnel, works 24/7, even in tough environments

CSCView works in even the toughest environments and at night so field workers are not in unpleasant or unsafe working conditions thereby reducing the risk to their safety.

Digital accurate records, with automated alerts of issues

Providing digital records that are usable across operations and maintenance CSCView reduces manual and paper-based workflows saving time and money. Critical issues are flagged and reported automatically so that corrective actions can be taken with less impact on service.
