Multilayer coatings are widely used in architecture, rail transport and in maritime vehicles, a market in which Ariño Duglass has begun to enter, and they are a fundamental for the improvement of energy efficiency, since they allow greater control of the solar energy incident on the glazing, as well as in the case of the “low emissives”, also allowth the control of the re-emission of black body radiation from them.
The CONTER project aims to address the development of new multilayer coatings for solar or low-emission control from various points of view: improvement of the current multilayer designs, improvement of the deposition process, improvement of the quality controls, development of coatings with new aesthetic aspects and new functionalities.
Currently in the initial phase of the project. The following results are expected:
- Precise and low-cost data acquisition subsystem to obtain the current curve in each operation of the turnout.
- Robust, low cost, autonomous and real time wireless communication subsystem.
- Specific software subsystem to study the existence of defects in the drive system and its diagnosis.
