The Trimble GEDO CE Trolley System comprises a multi-function highly accurate track measuring device along with field and office software that is is approved for use by Network Rail on all its infrastructure (Certificate of Acceptance Number PA05/04029).
Initially designed around the specification and requirements of the German Rail Authority (Deutsche Bahn AG) the system has evolved since 1998 and is now sold to countries all over the world including Australia, Belgium, China (over 150 systems), France, Greece, Italy, Ireland and the UK.
- Flexible and user-friendly system.
- Highly precise, rugged and reliable.
- Compact and cable-free.
- Logging of all measurement data.
- Facilitates increased speed of measuring, improved efficiencies and cost reduction.
ROBUST AND HIGH-PRECISION TRACK SURVEYING SYSTEM OFFERING A FAST AND ECONOMIC SOLUTION.
After setting up and referencing the Total Station the GEDO track measuring device (TMD) is positioned on the track. The system is ready to be used immediately. There is no time consuming assembling necessary on site. A prism can be mounted on either side of the TMD and during the measuring process is tracked by the Total Station (Trimble S8 or Trimble SPS). The Total Station measures distances either in tracking or single measurement mode. Points may be measured and stored in either Stop & Go or Kinematic mode.
During Stop & Go measurements the TMD is stopped for about 2 seconds for every measurement. However by using the Kinematic option the TMD can be pushed at a constant speed of approximately <1m/second and the point will be automatically stored based on your user-defined criteria (typically every 5 metres).
Options available are GEDO Rec Software, GEDO Track, GEDO Office and GEDO Tamp
