With demand for rail travel increasing it is critical the network operator can provide an efficient and reliable network to cope with rising demand. The railway distribution network is no different; a fault or cable theft can cripple the network leading to long delays and frustration for rail passengers. TRANSFLEKT represents a step change in pre-fault location and is easily adaptable to any power network within the global rail industry.
TRANSFLEKT monitors the condition of the power cable 24/7 using unique patented technology and, if the characteristics of the cable should change or a section of cable be stolen, automated alerts would be sent directly to the network operator significantly reducing network downtime and the impact of a delay.
Constant monitoring of the cable also allows for identification of cable sections prone to water ingress – although these do not necessarily result in immediate faults, they are generally the precursor to a cable failure.
