Axle Counters

Axle counting systems with inductive wheel sensors have established themselves with many railway operators worldwide as reliable and cost-effective track vacancy detection systems. The varying basic conditions and requirements among different operators call for flexible and individual adaptation possibilities when it comes to modern axle counting systems. For this reason, all Frauscher axle counting systems have been structured in such a way that they are modular and scalable. With its axle counter portfolio, Frauscher offers its customers around the globe optimal solutions for each of their functional, operational and infrastructural requirements.

Innovative tools offer additional support during installation and operation. For example, Frauscher offers individually adaptable, future-proof diagnostic solutions that exploit the potential of increasing digitalisation in the railway industry. Databases and diagnostic systems, which can run both on-premises and in a cloud, enable intelligent monitoring of entire railway networks. They thus support the efficient planning and implementation of preventive maintenance measures.
