Albis Technologies has unveiled a new RFID solution that can detect, locate and track the frequency of use of locomotives in real time for each individual wagon.

The new solution uses high-speed track and trace RFID technologies, helping rail operators know exactly when, where and how often their passenger or freight cars and locomotives are used.

The solution includes trigger / reader units installed at selected locations on a railroad network and equipped with an interface (LAN / serial / modem / GSM link) to the operator’s IT network, as well as the installation of hand-sized active RFID transponders on the cars and locomotives.

It can help rail operators identify each individual car in sequence almost instantly, automatically and at speeds of up to 160km/h.

According to the company, the RFID tags are attached to the underbelly of rail cars are weatherproof and can offer a service life of more than ten years.

The system allows rail operators to collect data to improve maintenance and management of their rolling stock.
