adaptable

Compatible with installed systems

There is no need to change the already in place system. The systems is adaptable to any project dimensions and costs decrease sensibly when controlling 2 or more heaters in the same cabinet.

all_in_one_place

A single platform for the whole network

The user easily access to all its network of point heatings monitored. This solution becomes interesting when the use of a centralised, autonomous and remote control is imposed.

Fast_ok

Simple and fast installation

Located indoor or outdoor, its design can be easily adapted to preexisting requirements. Accomplishing all environmental, electromagnetism and electrical security certifications.

reliability3

Highest level of reliability

Even under extreme operating and environmental conditions, with ice or snow. Solution oriented to improve conditions on operation and maintenance, streamline processes and reduce low profitability task.

Why point-heating monitoring?


Benefit from remotely switch on/off a point-heating, based on manual activation or triggered by bad weather conditions. Identify undetected breakdowns during inactivity periods which can block future operation.

Periods of Heating use are linked to weather conditions and uncertain. In addition, there is a lack of a centralised control because nowadays is done mostly on-field. This situation increases bad praxis risk, for example, when they are left switched on longer than required, increasing energy expenditure noticeably.

to operate and maintain?

Several constraints jeopardize point heating conditions

Point machine Heating systems seriously influences the availability of the point machines during winter periods, and therefore they are crucial to ensure the rail service.

There are several constraints that jeopardize their condition. For example, their intermittent use brings large inactivity periods. In those periods, the risk of deterioration of internal mechanisms is high, compromising their availability.

In addition, the lack of a centralised system, requires on-field solution-solving, often in bad weather conditions, which make these elements complex and expensive to maintain.

Control point heating systems from a centralised platform

Digitalization and new IoT solutions give several opportunities to improve the conditions in which point heatings are operated and maintain: remote control, automatic response to weather conditions, status autotest, operation and maintenance alarms…

The concept of a overall Digitalization platform with all the different assets that are manage by the Signalling department with centralised information and the use of sensors to provide an immediate response give a new approach to Heating of point machines.

Functionalities

A smart Point-heating system has to offer functionalities for both, control and condition monitoring, as follows:

Control

+ Remote manual control (turn on/off)
+ Automatic control according to the current temperature
+ Option to program inactivity after a certain use period

Condition Monitoring

+ Test functionality to ensure a correct status after inactivity
+ Current consumption alarms
+ Last activity, historical data and events trackingtest
