As a compact integration of load-measuring pin and display, the newly-developed HZM tongue-force measuring device provides everything necessary for perfect force testing onpoint-setting systems. The handy, light and versatile measuring device with a wide range of accessories has been approved for use in the networks of the Deutsche Bahn (DB Netz AG). Compact design, simple operation, large memory, high degree of IP protection and long operating time and service life, make the HZM a reliable instrument, especially when in continuous use. Setting force, setting resistance and holding force can be measured precisely, conveniently and swiftly. All kinds of forces can be measured with the universal HZM force-measuring device in combination with the different force-measuring pins - not only on points and point machines.
The tedious task of calibrating measuring pins before each measurement is now a thing of the past. An EEPROM memory in the connector of the load-measuring pin stores calibration, manufacturer and other data. The intelligent solution prevents incorrect pin calibration by the operator. As the pins can be locked, measurements can be made safely when trains are crossing points.
HZM-IIS coupling module
With the help of the HZM-IIS coupling module, data can be exchanged between the HZM and the Integrated Inspection System (IIS) database used by Deutsche Bahn AG. The HZM can use the export files from the IIS to make measurements and export the measurement results to the IIS.
The Windows-compatible diagnostic software provides a whole range of helpful and convincing tools. Project-related information on point location, manufacturer, type, year of manufacture, year of installation can be easily and clearly administered and stored for further evaluation. Graphic representation of the forces measured, the overlap of the force curves and comparison with the nominal-actual values enable vital and extensive evaluation.
