Typical applications for wayside condition reporting include:
Typically, wayside condition reporting systems function as standalone talkers that communicate via voice radio, directly to train crews. The SmartScan wayside condition reporting system can also report through a data radio network to the SmartScan Central Offi ce software system.
SmartScan wayside condition reporting systems offer very cost effective alternatives to the installation of full wayside defect detection systems.
The central offi ce reporting system provides near real time notifi cation of dangerous conditions that may develop along the right of way, plus notifi cation of any rolling stock defects detected by the SmartScan NG defect detection system.
Because the power requirement of the SmartScan wayside condition reporting system is so modest, it can be installed almost anywhere using an engineered solar power system from Southern Technologies Corporation.
Supplementing SmartScan defect detection networks with wayside condition reporting systems provides the best and most cost effective rolling stock and infrastructure protection available.
SmartScan wayside condition reporting systems are designed from the ground up to provide economical and fl exible drop in packages for monitoring and reporting dangerous conditions along the right–of –way. Each system is shipped complete with an 8-channel transceiver, and a DC/DC converter to provide isolation at locations where power is shared with signaling equipment.
Software support for all applications is incorporated in a single easy to confi gure package. All setup and data retrieval is performed through a RS232 serial interface.
The system can be confi gured to operate as a continuous scan device without advance start, or advance start can be provided by a rail-mounted transducer or a track circuit. If a transducer is used, wheel count information will be broadcast with defects.
One SmartScan wayside condition reporting system can service two tracks in many instances.
