Our Rail Temperature Monitoring Unit is an automatic temperature warning system which allows you to monitor the track temperature remotely, without having to go track-side.
During periods of high temperatures, the rail can reach up to 20°C above air temperature when in direct sunlight. When exposed to these temperatures, the rail expands and is subject to strong compression.
This causes major performance and safety issues for rail operators, as the risk of derailment increases.
The RTMU is ideal for monitoring temporary critical sites as it is portable, with newly developed features for an easier installation.
This largely reduces the need for track-side monitoring and lookouts, saving costs and reducing safety risks.
