Wire Scan provides infrastructure managers with a system to measure thickness, height, stagger and dynamics of the wires. Wire Scan uses advanced scanning technology to automatically and accurately measure the position and condition of overhead catenary, reducing the need for manual, physical inspections. Data is then displayed via a GIS interface. The system also enables customised algorithms for specific monitoring thresholds.

In addition, Strukton’s Poss data monitoring and analysis system uses non-intrusive sensors and data loggers to track the condition of a broad range of infrastructure assets such as points and track circuits.

The system allows for the collection and analysis of data on a broad range of parameters including temperature, current, impact, movement, humidity and hydraulic pressure, making use of big data, Internet of Things (IoT) and machine learning technologies, and complies with all European Union (EU) standards for EMC, safety and ICT security.

Poss hardware is linked to an advanced software algorithm in which data is analysed under the eyes of maintenance experts. Smart algorithms analyse and interpret the data and report on the root causes of failures.

The latest data is available online via the PossOnline digital platform, allowing operators to optimise the maintenance process and enable maintenance work to be carried out accurately and efficiently. The predictive strength of Poss means that users only receive information that they need, when they need it. Technicians immediately know where they need to be, what the problem is and how to solve it, and asset managers immediately obtain full insight into the performance and condition of their assets.
