AlphaSystem™ for railway

Keep trains moving and tracks clear with modern maintenance planning

AlphaSystem™ allows railway operators to reduce maintenance costs, to avoid catastrophic and cost-intensive breakdowns in normal operation and save fuel and unnecessary costs by monitoring diesel engines, traction motors, gearboxes and axle bearings on their entire fleet. Wheel and track condition monitoring are additional powerful features that expand the system’s functionality. Diagnostic data is collected on each vehicle and can be transmitted to a central system for maintenance planning, fleet performance analysis etc. The system is EN 50155 compliant.
