Total Track Monitoring

Our Total Track Monitoring portfolio was created to drive efficiencies, cost-effectiveness, and, ultimately, enable rail safety for freight, transit, and industrial customers.

Deploying cutting-edge Remote Condition Monitoring technologies is core to achieving 'predict and prevent' maintenance regimes to help significantly improve the performance and availability of railway and other assets.

Our Total Track Monitoring solutions integrate the most up-to-date CCTV, sensor, alert, control and video technologies to deliver always-on monitoring of conditions, these including

  • flood 

  • earthworks

  • bridge strike

  • level crossing obstacle detection

  • wheel load impact detection

  • avalanche

  • rockfall

  • wheel sensing

  • security surveillance

Data gathering & analytics

Monitoring the performance and operating condition of assets across the network requires that our solutions can be addressed remotely via:

  • IP networks

  • 4G/5G networks

  • trackside telecoms.

Analysis of this critical information by maintenance, infrastructure management and network operating teams shape decisions about when, where, what and how to target expenditure and resources.

In addition, it is imperative that the data we supply has a seamless interface with existing railway control systems.
