Remote condition monitoring is one of the most important innovations of recent years, enabling operators to predict problems before they occur.

The benefits are huge – reductions in downtime, improved safety and efficiency, and maximum value from the asset.

Trimble are leaders in remote condition monitoring, and they are constantly adding to their portfolio of successful implementations around the world.

And Trimble’s rail portfolio is now even more impressive, having recently acquired Beena Vision, whose wayside inspection systems integrate with Trimble’s rolling stock asset management solutions to provide operating companies with a more complete picture of their rolling stocks’ health.
