Dependable ice detection on railway tracks and diverters adds security

For the first time ever, in the winter of 2018/19, eologix sensors successfully measured the actual icing condition and surface temperature on several critical components of a switch in a Swiss alpine pass.

Currently, eologix is working with industry leaders on the joint project “Development of a Condition- Based and Predictive Railway Monitoring System for Railway and Rolling Stock”. The aim of this cross- sectoral research cooperation is to develop digital key technologies for the railway system. With the help of condition based monitoring and predictive maintenance, railway infrastructure availability is improved and life-cycle costs are lowered. Simultaneously, the continued technological and competitive leadership of Austrian and European railway industries is ensure through sustainable digitisation.

Once again, eologix energy self-sufficient and easy-to-install sensor technology offers key advantages for measurement data acquisition.
