Diagnostic and Monitoring Technologies for Rolling Stock

Innovative setting, signaling & monitoring technologies are an important part of today's railway systems. Railways hugely benefit from comprehensive and systemic digitalization, diagnostic and monitoring systems, data analytics and preventive maintenance regimes. 

rolling stock monitoring

We have developed a world leading range of monitoring solutions, which provide our customers with the tools to implement smarter maintenance practices and prevent asset failures. We can deliver turnkey supply and implementation of our products to our customers around the world. A variety of service contracts can be arranged, depending on the very needs of our customers, securing the desired level of availability of the systems and operation.

Data evaluations and analysis for relevant decisions

On behalf of the customer, we assess the generated data of the diagnostic and monitoring systems and provide it to the customer in legible form that can be interpreted. In conjunction with our global experiences, recommendations for action are derived from these data in cooperation with the customer, which fit exactly into the customer’s process landscape. The data evaluation allows the customer to use the systems economically in order to save money during ongoing operation and to avoid interruptions in operation. This is done by continuously using the data if systems are connected directly to the service center via a data connection or through offline data, which are transmitted by the customer as needed.

We directly record your assets’ condition and our Central Management Software assesses relevant information. This allows for optimized asset management, efficient maintenance planning and avoids unnecessary preventive maintenance.

Our central management software enables you to perform direct status capture and analysis of selective data. This ensures optimized asset management and efficient maintenance planning, helping to avoid unnecessary preventive maintenance cycles.

With over 20 years of rolling stock diagnostic and monitoring experience, we provide fleet managers with decision support and condition based maintenance data where and when they need it. Our devices and apps are designed to work with controllers, maintenance crews and signalers so that at every level your railway gets access to the information needed to keep your performance on track.

Our PHOENIX MDS rolling stock diagnostic and monitoring solutions are based on a variety of measurement technologies: infrared, fibre optic, acoustic and optical sensors can be applied to optimize the measurement location. The sensors are designed to withstand any environmental conditions and enable a continuous monitoring of rolling stock assets.

The Monitoring Suite

monitoring suite for rolling stock

Nature has often proven to be a good teacher. Keeping this in mind, we have created a modular structure of railway diagnostic and monitoring technologies: PHOENIX. Employing a honeycomb principle allows a simple and cost effective design. Applied to technology this means:

  • Simplicity: Applications and functions combine easily.
  • Flexibility: Structure is modular and expendable.
  • Cost Efficiency: Common components achieve synergy.

This natural structure fulfills all current and future requirements for safe and economic operations.

Today's railway infrastructure contains a wide range of measurement systems. Monitoring and alarming are core functions. Diagnostic applications can be added for advanced analysis and decision support. Next generation systems are able to turn various measurement data into valuable information.

The simplicity and flexibility of the Central Management Software PHOENIXCMS and the Modular Diagnostic System PHOENIXMDS are achieved through a choice of functions and applications. The structure of PHOENIX hardware and software offers a way to build up a monitoring suite that exactly fits to your needs and budgets. Start with basic investments and let the system naturally growing over the coming years.
