Passenger Railroads



Passenger Railroads

The operation of passenger railroads demands the ability to act with flexibility, because the same tracks are often used by freight lines as well. Therefore the requirements of both railroad segments typically have to be met when considering new installations or modernizing train detection components.

Passenger railroads also face challenges similar to mass transit systems in their need to maintain timely and continuous operations. The headways may be longer, but having maximum uptime and reliability of all components in a train control system, even in adverse weather conditions, is essential to sustain operational availability.

Frauscher wheel sensors provide high reliability, robust performance and remote diagnostics enabling passenger railroads to know all components on the track are working well to ensure safe operation. The ease of installation, simplicity of use and low maintenance needs of our wheel sensors also contribute to operational cost savings. This can be realized in minimizing mean time to repair affecting availability, or in calculating long term life cycle cost savings.

Frauscher can help passenger railroads address all their challenges, regardless of mixed traffic, speeds or density, with a combination of reliability and efficiency that deliver cost-effective solutions.

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.


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.
