Train Diagnostic Monitoring and Management Systems
Trimble/Nexala’s rail asset lifecycle management products are an integrated suite of on premise and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions, that manage the lifecycle of rail transport assets from operation through maintenance and repair. These solutions allow rail companies to plan for the future, improve operational efficiencies, manage service levels and reduce costs, while ensuring that the service they provide is maintained to the highest level. Customers using Trimble/Nexala solutions to manage the lifecycle of their rail transport assets include South West Trains, Eurostar, SNCF, Irish Rail, the Go-Ahead group, Siemens Transportation, Alstom and Abellio Greater Anglia among others. Trimble acquired Nexala in December 2014.
Informed by years of experience in the industry, Trimble has developed an integrated suite of products specifically addressing the needs of the rail transport sector. A strong focus on research and innovation has enabled us to develop a product range with an extensive breadth and depth of functionality. Our portfolio addresses everything from full fleet maintenance, real-time remote vehicle diagnostics and in-service vehicle performance, through to driver performance management and timetable adherence.
Rail Asset Lifecycle Management Solutions
The Trimble suite of rail asset lifecycle management products will allow you to develop a seamless solution across component and fleet types. Our flexible approach means we can tailor our systems to meet your exact needs.
Trimble rail asset lifecycle products are delivered as software as a service (SaaS) solutions and are accessible through mobile devices, including iPhone, iPad, and Android systems, kiosks, touch-screen equipment, and standard PC workstations. This minimizes your data storage and hardware investment.
Trimble R2M System: Real-Time Remote Diagnostic Monitoring
The Trimble R2M system combines shore-based software and on-train equipment to deliver alerts of faults as they occur for effective condition based maintenance. Communicating with the maintenance depots in real time, it allows for efficient fault diagnostics, and work scheduling by the maintenance team. Furthermore, by analyzing irregularities of individual components and their behaviour across the entire fleet, it allows maintenance actions to be performed to potentially avoid future failures.
Trimble E2M System: Rail Engineering Maintenance Management
The Trimble E2M system is an enterprise-wide engineering, asset and maintenance management system. It is designed to control assets, manage stock, streamline procurement, schedule workshop operations and plan maintenance, in order to achieve optimum asset availability and labor utilization.
Trimble C2M System: Rail Vehicle Component Condition Monitoring
Trimble’s C2M system combines trackside and handheld measuring devices with software analytics to proactively monitor wheels, brakes, pantographs and other key components for wear and defects. By detecting and analyzing anomalies, it provides predictive advice of maintenance requirements and automates maintenance planning.
Trimble P2M System: In-Service Fleet Performance Planning and Management
The Trimble P2M system uses timetable, actual vehicle location and real-time diagnostics information to help identify the root cause of delays and plan journeys for optimum timetable adherence. Through a combination of journey planning and improved driver awareness, it also maximizes energy/fuel efficiency, helping manage driver behaviours. P2M also provides the operations teams with in-service recommendations when fleet failures occur to reduce delays and penalties. P2M also provides notifications of potential in-service failures likely to occur across the entire fleet.
