Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus (10) for inspection of railway vehicles includes at least one light source (38) along with a camera (36) arranged to obtain an image of a least part of the vehicle. The light source and camera are located within a support box (12) connected to the underside of the rails (16). The box (12) is of similar size to a sleeper, so installation is straightforward. Each component within the box (12) is supported on vibration-suppressing resilient mountings (42).
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil (10) pour inspecter des véhicules ferroviaires comprenant au moins une source lumineuse (38) ainsi qu'une caméra (36) disposée de manière à obtenir une image d'au moins une partie du véhicule. La source lumineuse et la caméra sont situées à l'intérieur d'un boîtier support (12) relié au côté inférieur des rails (16). Ledit boîtier (12) présente une taille similaire à une traverse, de sorte que l'installation est simple. Chaque composant à l'intérieur du boîtier (12) est supporté par des montages (42) souples permettant la suppression des vibrations.
