We want to give some interesting information on solutions in the railway / transport sector.
Let’s start by analyzing some problems on the management of the railway network:
Management is important and complex; with the ever increasing demand for safety, it is necessary to improve the aspects concerning surveillance, maintenance and inspection. This involves maintaining thousands of kilometers of track and hundreds of trains, as well as installing IT solutions that can withstand these environments. Other applications, such as viewing live video when a locomotive is maneuvering, can make a significant contribution to safety. Getac Solutions for Rail Applications provide solid support for professionals working to maintain an efficient and safe rail network.
IT solutions for the railway sector face two major challenges: being able to function in long-term operations on board trains and in the harsh outdoor environments of those who maintain infrastructure. Getac solutions are inherently robust, certified by international third-party organizations up to MIL-STD 810Hstandards and up to IP66 degree of protection. They work perfectly in extreme weather conditions and withstand shocks, vibrations, cold temperatures, humidity, dust and drops from heights up to about 180 cm.
From field communications to the transmission of cargo manifests and other documents, connectivity is critical to a rail management solution. With dedicated GPS, 4G and Wi-Fi 6, the solutions help professionals stay connected and ensure their safety.
Professionals dealing with railway maintenance, management and inspection have to work outdoors for most of their time. LumiBond® 2.0 technology offers better touch control (in the rain, when wearing gloves and even with a stylus) and provides a more readable display both indoors and outdoors, showing better contrast and sharper colors. In sunlight or rain, the devices’ highly readable screens help professionals access the information they need, where they need it.
Getac’s mobile solutions include fully rugged tablets that put service documentation and diagnostics directly at the fingertips of technicians while onboard trains and during track inspections or activities on trains or stations. The digitizer pen (optional) and stylus also help replace pen and paper for recording jobs, making it easier to store and transfer data and helping you digitize your operations.
Last by not list the possibility to have a “Predictive maintenance”.
Having said that, we want to focus on the prerogatives of Getac solutions:
Highly integrated solutions
For both outdoor inspections and on-board train activities, such as surveillance and documentation management, a computer is not isolated: appropriate supports and accessories are often required. Working closely with the partners to offer a fully integrated solution that includes hardware, mounting kits, mobile.
