The Instrumentel Energy Metering Unit has been designed to retrofit to rail traction units to provide rail operators with real-time information on net energy consumption and driver behaviour
The Energy Metering Unit is available for both fully electric units, where it measures the energy consumption drawn from overhead lines and diesel-electric units where it provides real time feedback on diesel consumption by the traction unit. In both cases, the unit additionally monitors power regeneration by the engine and braking to calculate net energy consumption.
When combined with GPS locations, the Instrumentel Energy Metering Unit can additionally inform operators about driver behaviour at each part of the route.
