Frauscher Sensor Technology
Track more with less
Frauscher Sensor Technology makes it simpler for system integrators and railway operators to obtain the information they need to run, monitor and protect their operational network. Best-in-class wheel detection systems, axle counters and tracking solutions based on inductive sensor technology and Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) form an essential component of a wide range of applications.
Frauscher experts are on-site in global markets to ensure comprehensive support during the whole customer life cycle. Additionally customers are able to design, configure, install, adapt and maintain all components and systems by themselves due to individual trainings and support.
Essential components for various applications
Control trains and systems:
Precise detection and tracking of train movements enable an efficient train control management. Frauscher systems provide information required for track vacancy detection (SIL 4), to manage level crossings, for switching point protection or platform announcements and further applications.
Monitor the condition of trains and infrastructure:
Globally proven wheel detection systems provide highly precise information for reliable and safe triggering of trackside monitoring equipment. Furthermore, tracking solutions offer innovative possibilities to directly monitor train as well as infrastructure assets without the need of any on-board equipment.
Protect personnel and infrastructure:
The ability of detecting all kinds of activities along a track forms the basis for efficient protection of personnel, vehicles, trespassers or even animals. These capabilities can also be used for securing infrastructure components from cable thefts or vandalism.
Simple access to the information you need
Technologies for a broad range of information:
Frauscher provides customers with a broad range of relevant and precise information by developing best-in-class sensors based on inductive sensor technology and on distributed acoustic sensing.
Systems that can be integrated and handled in a simple way:
Due to open interfaces Frauscher solutions can be simply integrated into any infrastructure on various levels. The smart system architecture enables to use wheel detection, axle counting and tracking systems as stand-alone or integrated solution.
Support for complete success in your projects:
Frauscher’s customer proximity and technical know-how on-site in the markets enables answering requirements with tailored solutions. This enables to guarantee an outstanding support during the whole customer life cycle.
