L.B. Foster Flood Monitoring System Installed Along Class I Railroad

The L.B. Foster Flood Monitoring System is far more sophisticated than it looks at first glance. The simple design of the inline flood pole makes the technology appear more like a depth pole than what it truly is inside and out – a powerful, revolutionary wireless remote system.

“Currently, systems are installed along Class I rail lines where simulated flood tests show impressive results, alerting our customer within two minutes from the start of water testing to the alarm being delivered digitally,” said Michael O’Connell, Manager of Technology Sales. “This system provides customers the opportunity to act very quickly to avoid derailments on the line in the case of flooding.”

Our contracting partner, Lumietri, were integral in getting the system up and running. 

While many flood detecting devices out there today use some sort of float mechanism, this revolutionary system has both sophisticated external sensing and internal advanced technology. The common systems out there today live in water and require a lot of maintenance as they are prone to sediment buildup. This pole purely relies on external sensing, providing longevity and efficient maintenance over time.
