Railway measurements services

We don’t just deliver data, we also carry out analyses through the technical expertise of rail domain experts throughout the organisation.

We are specialised in the field of assurance testing and in-service measurements during the operational phase of both trains and rail infrastructure (investigative testing).

We can carry out measurements to the highest professional standards, accredited according to ISO/IEC17025 (link to our accreditation), which underpins the reliability of our measurement data.

With a dedicated team and state-of-the-art measuring equipment, we carry out measurements of both electrical and mechanical quantities. We can also measure currents and voltages, accelerations, forces, temperature and air pressure.

To minimise the impact of measurements on the use of the asset, we can also offer measurements entirely autonomously.


  • Data analysis informed by in-depth understanding of rolling stock, infrastructure and their interfaces
  • We can handle complex measurements within a short time frame
  • State-of-the art equipment for both staffed and autonomous measurements
  • ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation
  • We tailor the measurement solution to your needs
