The UK's largest supplier of rail technologies including...

Rail Multipurpose Sensors

Arrowvale Electronics are proud to be UK distributors for Noris-Group range of sensors. In particular, the rail approved DIN EN 50155 sensors. Below is just a very short summary of the various sensors and applications. There are 100’s of options as the sensors are modular. These sensors have been installed over various vehicles all over the world providing predictive and condition-based monitoring.

Please get in touch to learn more. These are perfect with our remote monitoring device.

Multipurpose Sensors for Condition Based Monitoring

Speed / Acceleration / Temperature

 Rail multipurpose sensors


  • Any combination of up to three sensors in one housing for measuring acceleration (vibration), speed, and/or temperature
  • Space saving design and mechanically compatible with compact standard NORIS designs (threaded and flanged sensors)
  • Vibration and structure-borne noise measurements with a low noise level
  • Easy to install and service: minimised installation, wiring, and maintenance work
  • On request with long-life wiring with special protective tubing against extreme heat, frost, and impact from stones
  • Ideal for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance
  • Type tested in compliance with DIN EN 50155 for rail applications

Discover new possibilities with our flexible multi-sensor for condition monitoring

The multi-sensor combines several sensors, including a vibration sensor, in one housing and is designed to measure structure-borne noise levels for the detection of wear processes. In addition to the vibration sensor, also a temperature and/or speed sensor can be integrated into the multi-sensor. The sensor can also be used as a retrofit for upgrading older systems with only one measuring point (e. g. rpm).

Different design types

A further advantage is the wide range of design types and connections that let you choose the model best suited to your application:

  • Flange housing
  • Screw-in sensor with male thread
  • Stick-in sensor
  • Customised connecting cable with an open end
  • Connecting plug of your choice
  • On request, cable protection for applications in extreme environments

Application examples

  • Wheel set monitoring: vibration measurements on wheel flanges and bearings
  • Bogie monitoring: loose parts, resonance, bearing damage
  • Drive system monitoring: vibration measurements on traction motor and gearing (e. g. gearwheel damage, bearing damage, imbalance)
