A detector apparatus uses two scanners on the right of way for monitoring the wheels of a moving train . The scanners scan the wheels transversely to the tracks along a common axis and generate wheel temperature signals. The signals corresponding to the wheel bearing end caps or housing lids indicative of the wheel bearing temperatures are separated and analyzed so that the apparatus can detect and indicate both hot wheel and hot bearing conditions.
A detector apparatus for monitoring the wheels of a railroad car running on tracks, said wheels having rims, bearing end caps or housings covering the wheel bearings, said detector apparatus comprising: scanning means disposed adjacent to said tracks and arranged and constructed to scan said wheels a direction normal to said tracks, said scanning means generating sequential data signals including rim temperature signals and end cap or housing lid temperature signals indicative of the temperature of said rims and said bearings respectively; and analyzing ...
