With the digital information carrier Smart Typeplate all gearbox data can be read digitally.

Digital component identification in rail vehicles

The Smart Typeplate completes the original typeplate with RFID technology. Therefore ZF integrates a RFID chip with a unique identification number into the original typeplate for the products. Product data (type designation, material number and technical details) can be accessed via this RFID chip. Additionally the actual operating hours for the components can be determined. As a digital identification element the Smart Typeplate enables an efficient fleet management.
