Reduced risk of tipping with loading wagons
In order to increase the safety of loading wagons, automatic braking systems are used. The brakes are activated if the lateral acceleration of a loading wagon becomes too high due to high speeds and tight curves and if the wagon threatens to tip over. The braking reduces the wagon’s speed and therefore both the lateral acceleration and the risk of tipping over. For electronic braking systems, acceleration sensors from the ACC53 series from Micro-Epsilon are used, which reliably detect the accelerations of the loading wagon.
