Stand Alone Digital Air Flow Sensor

Expected advantages of Standalone Air Flow Sensor in locomotive brake system in place of existing airflow indicating device are as under:

  • It can enable crew a better appreciation of train condition, besides giving more accurate value of air leakage.
  • Better reliability of the equipment because of reduction in number of equipments from loco brake circiuit.
  • Reduction in connecting pipe network.
  • Reduction in complexity of brake system.
  • Comparatively lesser brake equipments are required to be maintained and thus provide ease in maintenance.
  • Improvement in sensitivity and accuracy & initial charging time.
  • The electrical output signal from air flow sensor can also be utilized to operate auto flasher light operation and thus can replaced P2 pressure switch.
