RAIL TRANSPORTATION

Rail riders every day are experiencing the impact of the Graphtec recorders hard at work in maintaining smooth rails, comfortable riding experiences, and safety measures to make sure trains are on time and the control signals are working properly.  From measuring current levels in installing uniform rods into the rails to indoor air-conditioning maintenance and electrical control switch monitoring, Graphtec dataloggers offer powerful solution for dynamic and long-term measurement tools to ensure systems are running appropriately and reliably.

Our portable data platform offers versatile and low-cost solution for vibration and strain analysis with focus on ready-to-launch test systems for long term recording requirement. Our dynamic high speed, high voltage portable recorders (GL2000 and GL980) can also monitor high voltage signals for troubleshooting problematic transients.  Other application includes stray current analysis that require long-term monitoring of dynamic signals.  Experience the power of the Graphtec solution at the palm of your hand.
