Predictive Condition Monitoring Systems

Predictive Condition Monitoring Systems

When it comes to predictive condition monitoring systems look no further than Progress Rail. We deliver the most comprehensive predictive condition monitoring systems available on the market today.



Argus is an essential, integral part of the Asset Protection central communications and telemetry platform. Argus establishes the framework for smart communications between field devices, office processing and the Central Train Control System.

Argus collects and compiles the data from various types of wayside vehicle performance monitoring devices, to create a composite view of railway vehicle performance. This view can be selectively modified by the user to create semi-custom even notifications and reports for individual vehicle performance or overal fleet performance.



OSCAR is the latest predictive condition monitoring system from Progress Rail. It provides an automated maintenance reporting tool to predict problems with rolling stock and any other critical asset components. OSCAR acts as a repository for Asset Protection data.

For Asset Protection, Asset Utilisation and Asset Maintenance: OSCAR is the answer.

OSCAR collects, compiles, and analyses the data from various types of vehicle performance monitoring devices, both wayside and on-board to create a composite view of railway vehicle performance.


Battery Condition Monitoring

Battery Condition Monitoring is a breakthrough in the management of remote battery-based power systems. Based on 10 years of field experience, with over 300,000 batteries in over 75,000 sites, this system offeres the combined advantages of performance prediction, easy installation and low cost.

This technology continually monitors the float charging current, ambient and battery temperatures. If any battery temperature rises above the ambient temperature and exceeds the user defined thresholds, an alarm condition is generated, SNMP traps are sent and a contact closure on the control unit is activated. If any of the string's float charge current exceeds user defined thresholds, an alarm is also signalled in a simlar manner.
