Rail Weather Systems


Conductor Rail Ice System

Conductor Rail Ice System

The Vaisala IceCast Conductor Rail Ice system provides users with advanced warning of the likely occurrence of ice, frost and snow. The system utilises an innovative technique, embedding a sensor within a conductor rail.


Overhead Wire Ice Weather System

Overhead Wire Ice Weather System

Ice on the overhead wire causes trains to lose power, and in extreme cases can lead to system break-down. The Vaisala IceCast Overhead Wire Icing system provides users with advanced warning of the presence of icing on the overhead contact wire.


Rail Temperature System

Rail Temperature System

Rail buckling is a major safety and performance issue. The Vaisala IceCast Rail Temperature system enables maintenance staff to remotely monitor rail temperature all year round.


Rail Weather System

Rail Weather System

The Vaisala IceCast Rail Weather system reports precipitation type, intensity and accumulation. Such data helps warn engineers of heavy snowfall events and of the risk of embankment erosion, wash-outs and landslips following heavy rainfall.


Wind Alarm System

Wind Alarm System

High wind gusts can cause dangerous movement of exposed overhead wires. In some cases, high wind gusts may lead to loss of power, de-wirements and de-railment of empty freight cars. The Wind Alarm system provides advanced warning of wind gust events.
