TagMaster has been selected by Lloyds Register Rail to provide RFID systems for the Gotcha Monitoring Systems supplied to ProRail in the Netherlands.
Gotcha is an monitoring platform to measure the quality of various aspects of passing trains. It will provide real-time information about axle loads, load imbalances, the quality of wheels and train speed – providing savings in both infrastructure and rolling stock maintenance costs.
The integrated TagMaster RFID system ensures that the actual measurements are matched with the correct train and wheel pairs as the train passes at full line speeds.
The equipment will be installed during 2010, at 41 locations and will include TagMaster’s LR 6-HD Track Side Readers.
