Network maintenance underpins rail operations

Maintaining rail overhead wiring networks is a resource intensive, high pressure operation, essential for revenue generating service. Despite its criticality, current inspection practices limit maintainers ability to monitor and respond to issues as they develop. As a result, components are replaced too early or after failure and it is difficult to validate the efficacy of maintenance activities.

Targeting your maintenance with precision

Telemattica works with rail organisations and network maintainers by providing the right data to prioritise and improve network maintenance with the Pantograph Collision Detection System (PCDS). The PCDS offers:

  • Real time data from the pantograph to line interface
  • Impact event data, footage, and satellite tracking
  • Defect identification
  • Identification of asset condition degradation
  • Validation of maintenance activity
