Digital monitoring

Using innovative, cost-efficient methods of data collection, we provide real-time condition intelligence that is presented direct to maintenance teams through customised dashboards featuring location maps, diagnostics readings, photographic evidence and 3D models.

Digital asset monitoring

PanMon captures high-definition images and 3D scans of passing pantographs to draw early attention to defective units likely to cause damage to overhead wires.

CatMon uses solar-powered sensors affixed to the pantographs of in-service trains that continually monitor overhead wires for hard spots and other imperfections that could lead to teardown incidents.

InfraMon provides continuous monitoring of track geometry, railhead defects and ride comfort, offering early indications of emerging defects and ultimately support improved track availability.

An innovative track geometry assessment tool to help ensure safe and reliable track conditions are maintained on the world's railways.
