Whether in high traffic sectors or dark territory, it is important for operators to accurately assess that all components on the track are working properly in order to ensure safe operation. Featuring remote diagnostics and low maintenance, Frauscher train detection systems provide train and track vacancy detection with maximum uptime, regardless of the density, speed or mix of traffic.

In dark territory, ease of installation and low maintenance make Frauscher systems the most practical solution for train detection. These benefits, combined with seamless integration with downstream systems, enable efficient and precise triggering of track side monitoring equipment on freight railroads.

Applications in rail yards facilitate a wide range of operations, including switch point protection, track determination, inventory and speed management. Systems that combine the collection of information for secure monitoring, with additional functions like speed measurement, help reduce the time needed for shifting or shunting and can significantly increase the efficiency of yards.

Frauscher's flexible interfaces with interlockings, control systems and PLC’s provide quick, easy and cost effective solutions for yard modernization. Installation of our wheel sensors via removable, easily adjustable rail claws and pluggable cables are ideal for yard operations that demand frequent removal or relocation of track equipment.
