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
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 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.
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.
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.
