Project Description

critical rail monitor

Project details

For Dual Inventive, we have worked on parts of the electronics and enclosure of the CRM 3000 – Critical Rail Monitor. This wireless sensor measures the temperature of rails. At critical upper and lower temperatures dangerous situations may occur. The CRM 3000 monitors this temperature and provides a notification when action needs to be taken. The CRM 3000 is connected to MTinfo 3000, an online platform in which the user can easily monitor all data.


  • Dual temperature sensor;
  • 3-axis accelerometer;
  • Ultra low power, long battery life;
  • Wireless connectivity with Narrowband IoT (NB-IOT);
  • Connected with MTinfo 3000 – Online IoT platform for rail.

For AWL we have developed an door sensor. This sensor can be used to perform predictive maintenance analysis for access doors to welding robots.

Critical Rail Monitor – CRM 3000

For Dual Inventive we worked on the housing and electronics of the CRM 3000 - Critical Rail Monitor. This sensor can be attached to the rail and detects critical temperatures.

ZKL 3000 RC V2

The ZKL 3000 RC V2 is a track circuit operating device. When the device is activated, it simulates a train in an isolated track section, which makes the signals turn red immediately creating a safe protected area for railway workers.
