Axle counting systems
Smart digital axle counting systems as the backbone for railway operationsOur axle counting systems provide a modern track vacancy detection technology, forming the basis for today's railway services. It supplies track section free/occupied status information – permitting safe, trouble-free, and efﬁcient signaling operations.
Smart digital track vacancy detection for connected railway solutionsThe compact Clearguard ACM 200 and 250 are based on Trackguard Simis FM technology – a reliable, proven platform running all Sinet-xCMs product applications (e.g. TCM, SCM, PCM, DCM) in a 2-out-of-2 conﬁguration. Its modular architecture can be tailored to individual customer requirements, thus offering a smart and cost-effective axle counting implementation on multiple operating concepts and applications. The outdoor equipment is based on the Clearguard ZP D 43 counting head, which uses a double-side technology with two sensors for mainline, mass-transit and industrial railways.
Versatile and scalable for broad-ranging applications
Our Clearguard ACM 200 and 250 evaluators with the ZP D 43 counting head provide a cost-effective axle counting solution for all types of railway topologies and operations.
The Clearguard ACM 200/250 are ﬂagship Siemens axle counting systems and will be further developed according to the market needs. Certain features already planned for future developments include:
- IT Security Level 3 according to IEC 62443 standards
- Remote diagnostics via OPCUA interface
- Remote upgrade services for future security and system releases
