  Voith and Siemens partners develop coupler condition monitoring solution

20. June 2018 – Voith and Siemens enter into a cooperation to develop a condition monitoring solution for the Voith Scharfenberg coupler. Siemens AG and Voith Turbo GmbH & Co. KG signed the cooperation agreement in May 2018.

Voith will act on the basis of know-how in the areas of energy absorption, front-end systems and couplers as well as digital knowledge on the development of the solution within the framework of the cooperation. Siemens is integrating the Railigent application, which is based on MindShpere, the underlying operating system of the Siemens Internet of Things (IoT). Railigent offers a range of digital services for smarter track management, including apps for intelligent monitoring, intelligent data analysis and intelligent vehicle prediction, signaling and rail infrastructure. Once the Voith solution is developed, it will be offered in the Siemens Railigent application suite.

The aim of the cooperation is the joint presentation of an advance release at the Innotrans 2018 in Berlin. Both parties intend to further strengthen the collaboration by providing solutions for additional Voith components in the Siemens Railigent application suite.
