Rail Temperature Monitoring

< Back

Product Overview

 

The expansion and contraction of a train system's rails can create great stress on joints and within its steel material. Progress Rail's Rail Temperature Monitor provides continuous temperature monitoring - allowing adjustments to be made to loads and speed of travel, reducing external stresses and the likelihood of the rail suffering stress breaks.

The Progress Rail's Rail Temperature Monitor is glued or clamped onto the base of the rail and makes direct contact with the rail material. This allows for accurate recordings to be taken of the local steel.
