Customer success story for monitoring critical parts of the railroad infrastructure

18/09/2014

Secure in Air has selected Xenics as a key supplier for their GeocamPro project. Together with BAM Rail, Secure in Air has developed an infrared inspection system for real-time monitoring of switch heaters. This critical part of the railroad infrastructure is essential for a safe and uninterrupted transportation service. 

We have successfully delivered our Gobi-640-GigE camera for this project.

"Secure in Air appreciates the professional service, knowledge and advice of Xenics in implementing the Gobi camera in our project GeoCampro", says Robert de Nes owner of Secure in Air. "Our client was more than satisfied with the results, looking for (thermal) defects in the railways."

Application notes
Dual-Band Monitoring Keeps Trains Running in Winter Keeping critical parts of the railroad infrastructure free of snow, sleet, hail and ice – and even detecting unauthorized persons walking the rails – is essential for a safe and uninterrupted transportation service. Dual-band monitoring of critical rail elements with a PTZ (pan, tilt and zoom) camera platform in the visible and thermal infrared ranges can remotely inspect installed switch heaters at a range of up to 2000 ft.

Extreme compact size and low weight

Given the extremely compact size and low weight of the Xenics XS-1.7-320 SWIR camera it was extremely easy to integrate it into our existing optical setup.
