    Wheel Detection
    Many years of worldwide experience have enabled Frauscher to develop wheel sensors that are characterised by maximum availability.

    Even when subjected to extreme temperatures, vibrations and electromagnetic interference, Frauscher wheel sensors generate reliable data for both vital and non-vital applications. The patented rail claws and the plug-in connection available on some models also facilitate significantly faster mounting of Frauscher wheel sensors.

    Additionally, low maintenance requirements minimize life cycle costs. For realising vital applications, Frauscher provides its customers with proven wheel detection systems.

    The Wheel Sensor RSR110 can be integrated quickly and simply into individual applications via its analogue interface or the Wheel Signal Converter WSC, as well as customer specific solutions for digitising the signal.


    Axle Counting

    With a portfolio of four axle counters, Frauscher offers its customers around the globe optimal solutions for their functional, operational and infrastructural requirements. Frauscher axle counters provide a wide range of information that goes beyond just train detection. This information can be provided via state-of-the-art software interfaces using the latest Ethernet communication technologies.

    Connection to high-performance electronic interlockings is possible both via customer-specific protocols and via the freely available Frauscher Safe Ethernet FSE. At the same time, Frauscher axle counters can be integrated into interlockings and signalling systems via common hardware interfaces such as relays. All Frauscher axle counting solutions are modular and scalable. Both system integrators and operators can configure, commission, maintain and adapt them quickly and easily.

    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.

    TRACK AND TRAIN MONITORING – THE NEXT DIMENSION




    A leader in wheel detection and axle counting, Frauscher Sensor Technology is looking to take track and train monitoring into the next dimension. Since launching its Frauscher Tracking Solutions FTS, based on Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology, in 2016, the Austrian supplier has been busy demonstrating its applications on networks across the globe.


    Given the growing numbers of rail passengers worldwide, operators and infrastructure managers are under increasing capacity pressure. Keeping track and train downtime to a minimum, while maintaining high levels of safety, has never been so critical. Maximum availability across entire networks is now the name of the game.


    Yet delivering such highly efficient rail operations calls for consistent monitoring in real time of components of every track and train. This explains why, over the past five years, interest in fibre optic acoustic sensing, based on technologies such as DAS, has gained momentum among railway operators and signalling experts.
