Ultimate Rail

The future of train detection: In the latest issue of Ultimate Rail, we present our view of what is currently feasible, what will be possible in the future and what challenges may be encountered along the way.

Track more with less

Generating more relevant information with less effort is what the future of train tracking will look like. Frauscher's focus centers around making it easier for railroad operators in North America and around the world to obtain the information they need. As our technological innovations improve the quality of information our customers receive and the ease with which they receive it, we continue to move into the future. Get on the right track with us!

Modernizing the Whittier Tunnel

At 13,300 feet, the Whittier Tunnel is the longest combined rail and highway tunnel in North America. When the Alaska Railroad Corporation decided to modernize the tunnel’s signaling system, the objective was to replace existing track circuits that were deemed unreliable. Frauscher’s latest axle counting technology provided the highly-reliable train detection solution the Alaska Railroad Corporation needed.

 

FAdC

The Frauscher Advanced Counter FAdC features functional modularity, flexible scalability and an Ethernet-based interface that allows a wide range of configurations. The software interface enables the FAdC to be integrated effectively into higher-level systems offering great flexibility in terms of design and communications. System integrators and rail operators will benefit equally from significant advantages.

RSR110

Our easily-integrated and highly reliable wheel sensors help maximize uptime and achieve cost-effective operation across a wide range of applications. The open interface eases implementation into new or existing systems, providing great flexibility to meet individual application requirements. The development and production of the entire sensor family RSR110 adheres to international standards to assure optimum operation under all conditions.
