The RDS (Railway Deformation System) is a system designed and developed for the automatic monitoring of railways. RDS consists of a digital MEMS tiltmeter mounted parallel or transverse to the track. Micro-prisms can be installed on RDS-T gauges to integrate the system with optical monitoring. RDS components are used to monitor settlement, heave, and twist of the track. The system is designed to be used on active tracks to ensure railway safety.
? Monitors for possible deformations caused by nearby excavations ? Monitors for stability of temporary supports for railway tracks ? Monitors for safe operation in areas of possible settlement or heave
? Provides high accuracy with digital MEMS sensors ? Accommodates thermal expansion by telescopic joint ? Tolerates shock up to 20000 g ? Removes easily when reballasting is required
