Irish Rail to deploy Nexala’s R2M on commuter fleet Colm Flanaghan

TRIMBLE, United States, announced on August 27 that Irish Rail will be deploying Nexala's R2M remote diagnostics monitoring system across its CAF class 29000 commuter fleet.

The new project follows the successful implementation of the Nexala R2M system across Irish Rail's Hyundai-Rotem class 22000 DMU fleet, which is reported to have significantly improved performance and reliability.

Mr Peter Smith, Irish Rail's chief mechanical engineer, says: "Nexala's real-time remote diagnostic system was successfully rolled out across our InterCity class 22000 fleet in 2013. This has resulted in significant energy savings, incident prevention and recovery, and improved operational efficiencies."
