TraX Wheel End Monitoring System

The SKF TraX Wheel End Monitor (WEM) is a device that will help you to detect damages of truck and trailer wheel bearing (raceway spalling) in an early stage.

The TraX WEM is installed at the outboard side of the truck wheel rim. It monitors vibration and changes to an alert mode when measuring vibration created from raceway spalling. From that point in time the WEM will give a warning signal (red flashing light) after being activated.

How does it work?

The SKF TraX WEM wirelessly sends the wheel end health updates to an onboard gateway that transmits the data to the driver’s smartphone, the SKF Cloud, or a third party cloud, and on to the fleet’s maintenance location. In the event of detected bearing vibration, notification is typically made thousands of miles before likely service interruption. If TraX WEM detects a thermal event, the sensor will notify the fleet immediately so the driver can be instructed to pull over and avoid catastrophic bearing failure. TraX WEM can function as a standalone, fully configurable application, or can be integrated with any telematics system or service provider.
