GEKON is a measuring equipment designed for contactless corrugation measuring of both vignol and grooved rails. GEKON can be used for evaluation of railhead surface microgeometry evaluation.
GEKON allows to measure continuosly or per sections. Measurement results can be compared with EN 13231-3 standard.
GEKON is composed of manually driven trolley and measuring computer, which serves as a data-logger and it can also evaluate the measured data. Trolley is light and compact. It can be removed from the track and returned back within seconds. Measurement can be done on an operated track.
