Stationary and mobile testing equipment.
Efficient, high-performance rail transportation requires the vehicle subsystems to operate faultlessly. Given the safety-critical nature of braking systems, faultless operation of the test rigs and testing devices for the brake control system, air treatment system, compressors and bogie equipment is also essential. Knorr-Bremse has its own department dedicated to the development and production of custom pneumatic and hydraulic testing equipment and the associated software engineering.

Mobile Test Benches
Rapid train dispatch is essential for efficient freight transportation. However, in the interests of safety, a full brake inspection must be carried out every time a new trainset is put together. Passenger train brakes must also be inspected at regular intervals to ensure that they are working properly.
Mobile testing equipment and test rigs are designed for situations where no fixed testing facilities are available or getting to the nearest facility would take too long. The RailServices portfolio includes mobile testing equipment and test rigs for almost every conceivable track and trackside application, with wired and wireless versions catering to different local conditions. The latest models use powerful smartphones, transmitting data via existing mobile networks.
