Voith and Siemens partner to develop coupler condition monitoring solution

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

As a result of expertise in the areas of energy absorption, front-end systems and couplers as well as digital knowledge, Voith will take over the development of the solution within the cooperation’s framework. Siemens integrates the application into Railigent, which is based on MindShpere, the underlying Siemens Internet of Things (IoT) operating system. Railigent offers a range of digital services to manage rail assets smarter, including apps for smart monitoring, smart data analysis and smart prediction for rolling stock, signaling as well as for rail infrastructure. Once the Voith solution is developed, it will be offered in the Siemens Railigent application suite. 

The goal of the cooperation is a joint presentation of a preliminary solution at the Innotrans 2018 in Berlin, Germany. Both parties have shown the intention to further strengthen the cooperation by offering solutions for more Voith components on the Siemens Railigent application suite.
