ENSCO Rail has received a contract to equip two Canadian National Railway (CN) hi-rail vehicles with a track geometry measurement system and a machine vision joint bar inspection system, used to assess track conditions and to helping to improve safer operation.

ENSCO’s product RailScan Lite Track Geometry Measurement System (RSL-TGMS) is tailored specifically for use on hi-rail vehicles. RSL-TGMS deploys laser and inertial sensor technology to give CN a simple and strait forward inspection process that is easy to operate, calibrate and maintain.

ENSCO’s Joint Bar Inspection System is a machine vision-based inspection system that is used with both hi-rail and rail bound vehicles to identify joint bar defects, thus aiding in improving safety.

Both systems are fully compliant with Transport Canada and U.S. Federal Railroad Administration regulations. Additionally, both inspection systems will be integrated with CN’s internal data management systems for data analysis and remedial action planning.

ENSCO is pleased to support the safety and track inspection needs of the Canadian National Railway using best-of-breed technology.
