Data Recording Processor – DRP

DRP Data Recording Processor

The measuring system for documenting track geometry

We offer a fixed-price system upgrade, depending on the machine type.

Benefit from digital technology now

The DRP electronic data recording processor records, evaluates, and displays various track parameters, such as longitudinal level, alignment, cross level, twist etc. The measuring equipment supplies analogue signals. These are read in at regular intervals, stored after analogue-to-digital conversion, and displayed on the monitor. The fully digitised processing of the measuring values offers many new possibilities for evaluation.

Our services

  • Touch panel PC with 15-inch monitor including stainless steel keyboard with trackpad
  • EN 13848-compliant calculation of alignment and level D1 (3-25 m)
  • Graphic display of measuring values and acceptance tolerances depending on line category and type of work
  • Available in over 20 languages
  • More than 8 parameters can be selected, if required

Your benefit

  • Automated tolerance limit exceedance report
  • Saving time thanks to direct conversion into specific quality markers
  • Uncomplicated event marking thanks to pre-defined markers on the touchscreen

All benefits of digital recording technology

The DRP recorder can process more than the maximum of eight signals available on the DAR data acquisition recorder. The real-time display on the touch panel PC enables the immediate analysis of the individual channels and allows describing individual events using the commenting function.

In addition, the DRP offers

  • evaluation of the measuring and work graphs using clearance and acceptance lines
  • introduction of exception lists instead of evaluation templates
  • electronic data transfer of the measuring and work graphs as well as the measured data
  • additional recording parameters if required
  • display of the measuring results in the style of the measuring graphs of RAILab (Ril 821.2001)
  • new assessment criteria (in line with Ril 821.2001)
  • calculation of alignment and longitudinal level (D1) as per EN 13848
  • use of commercially available printers

SmartALC and DRP data recording processor on offer as a bundle

Exchanging two components at a time already saves valuable time and costs. Yet, if you upgrade to the SmartALC automatic guiding computer and the DRP digital measurement recording system at the same time, you can save even more. We are now offering both devices as a bundle.
