The battery discharge in the locomotives is a usual problem. Some discharge faster than other and cause serious unavailabilities. To prevent it, the Oullins maintenance centre teams have initiated a reflection about a connected sensor that monitors the battery state and trigger an alert when it reaches a critical level, with the objective of optimizing maintenance.
INTESENS has developed a sensor to monitor the battery level, its charge and discharge and the room temperature. An alert is sent on IDIAG WEB in case of failure, allowing the maintenance agents to quickly take action.
