Pulse Generators

HaslerRail’s Optical Pulse Generators are just one example of the speed acquistion and data recording systems we have been supplying to the rail industry since 1887. Today, tens of thousands of our devices and systems are in service around the globe.

Pulse generators converting an axle’s rotational motion into an electrical signal, which can be used to measure and record speed and distance, sense wheel slip and slide, and for different control and safety functions. Pulse generators are inherently safe, and are suitable for use in SIL4 systems. HaslerRail’s Optical Pulse Generator is also designed to withstand extreme thermal and mechanical stress.

Our pulse generators are built on an optical system that operates in the infrared range. It is possible to have two different frequencies per revolution and up to six electrically-isolated sensor. And, because they offer unparalleled accuracy and reliability, our pulse generators can be used in ETCS and other signalling applications.
