Individual and cost-effective wheel detection with a wide range of functions

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.

Axle Counters - 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 greater flexibility in terms of design and communications. System integrators and rail operators will benefit equally from these significant advantages.

The Frauscher Safe Ethernet (FSE) protocol empowers the operator to independently integrate the solution. It is easy and has simple logic. It eliminates proprietary software that is prohibitive in implementation efforts and costs. Frauscher provides training and complete support.

Wheel Sensors - 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 the flexibility needed to meet individual application requirements. The development and production of the entire sensor family RSR110 adheres to international standards, assuring optimum operation under all conditions.

The patented Frauscher rail claw, plug‑in connector cable, and automated adjustment procedure significantly reduce the effort required for assembly, disassembly or changing the location of a sensor. This provides significant savings, in terms of money as well as time.
