Turning vibrations from trains into electricity

Connecting the world's rolling stock through vibrations

For far too long, tracking and monitoring of rolling stock has been impossible due to shortcomings of available power sources. Converting vibrations into electricity, we eliminate the need for cables and batteries and enable monitoring of rail vehicles in a cost-effective way

What can we do for your railway application?

Enabling predictive maintenance

By using ReVibe's wireless power sources you can enable your systems to function without conventional batteries or cables, and you can finally use predictive maintenance instead of spending time and resources repairing your rolling stock after it has broken down.

Connecting your assets

Our power sources produces enough power for your systems to connect via GPS and GSM or similar protocols on a regular basis and communicate the condition and whereabouts of your assets - no need to ever be offline again!

Power by vibrations

Our power sources utilises the vibrations created by the moving train and turns them into electricity. That way, we ensure that you will always have enough power for your monitoring systems. What if the train is standing still? No worries, our units are equipped with a power buffer for those circumstances when there are no vibrations available.

Customer references

Custom design – Railway

THE CUSTOMER HAS DESIGNED A PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE SYSTEM WITH THE PURPOSE TO MONITOR THE STATE OF CRITICAL COMPONENTS ON THE BOGIE AND WAS IN NEED OF A AUTONOMOUS POWER SOURCE FOR THE SENSOR UNIT.

The purpose? Powering retrofit sensor systems on passenger- and cargo trains. The problem with their current version? The current power source, batteries, last up to 3 years. Bearings do not need regular maintenance until after 8 years. As a result, an unnecessary cost occurs every 3 years.

The user will save costs through:

1) Reduced material- and labor costs due to eliminated need of replacing batteries.
2) Reduced overall maintenance cost due to longer maintenance intervals and longer Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF).

Harvesting the power of passing trains

IN A PROJECT WITH DEUTSCHE BAHN, WE’VE ADAPTED OUR UNITS TO BE USED ON THE RAILWAY TRACK TO GENERATE POWER WHEN TRAINS PASS BY.

The purpose? To power sensors attached to the railway track that feeds information about critical components into Deutsche Bahn’s control centers. By using ReVibe’s products as power sources, monitoring remote and off-grid objects such as rail switches will be made possible without spending extensive resources on replacing batteries.
