Today, not even 25 percent of all grade crossings are gated in the United States. That leaves approximately 140,000 grade crossings ungated and not wired for safety. This represents a large challenge for railroad operators to install new or enhance existing gates, which can improve safety with minimal short- and long-term maintenance.
Frauscher can help with this transition. Our axle counters work in concert with existing track circuits to improve crossings. Where track circuitry struggles with high maintenance — axle counters provide a high level of reliability with minimal maintenance, even in the harshest of conditions.
