System description TrackIce Rail

The system is comprised of a central unit connected to surface sensors through DigiMesh wireless technology.

Central unit

The wireless central unit contains meteorological sensors measuring air temperature and humidity. In combination with information received from the rail track sensors hazardous situations can be identified and avoided. The wireless part of the system makes deployment of the system much easier than ever before.

Rail Track sensors

The rail track sensors measures the temperature in the tracks and communicates with other rail track sensors and the central unit. At certain locations such as bridges, tunnels or viaducts multiple sensors might be needed.
Sensors associated to the same central unit can be serially connected at a distance up to 100 meter.
