Monitoring systems for the railway industry

Using its experience in areas such as wheel impact load detection and hot axle box detection, voestalpine has become a globally trusted supplier of the latest railway monitoring technology. zentrak’s modular diagnostic system combines the newest hardware with state-of-the-art software solutions. Together, the system creates a flexible and easy-to-use rolling stock monitoring solution that is both accurate and efficient.

Reducing in-service failures, increasing fleet availability, and ensuring the safe operation of the railway are challenges experienced by every modern railway. To confront this challenge, voestalpine consults with its customers throughout the deployment phase to discuss how the systems will deliver the necessary information. zentrak can send alerts and telegrams to railway employees that are structured in a specific way to ensure that the messages are clear and easy to understand. This helps to avoid confusion and prevents employees from becoming overwhelmed, which results in more efficient operations.

With installation sites spread across the globe, in the hottest deserts and the coldest arctic environments, voestalpine’s zentrak diagnostic and monitoring solutions are able to withstand even the harshest of weather conditions anywhere in the world. Their ability to function in extreme environments means that voestalpine’s products are used by a range of customers to protect their assets from excessive wear and unscheduled service failures.

With zentrak, voestalpine can provide real-time, split-second alarms, as well as condition-based maintenance alerts through a suite of applications. This enables users to be presented with diagnostic data as soon as it is required, allowing them to interpret and analyse the data immediately.
