The CRM 3000 (Critical Rail Monitor 3000) sensor can remotely and in real-time measure rail temperature. It has been designed with ease of installation (seconds) and safety in mind; the sensor is magnetically attached to the track. In addition, in the near future, i can also measure railway track vibrations. The sensor communicates via MTinfo 3000 Cloud and the new NarrowBand Internet of Things (NB-IoT) network. Communication via this NB-IoT network requires very little battery consumption and has a long range. This makes the sensor operational for up to 5 years on a single battery.
The CRM 3000 allows for simple threshold settings – once exceeded, a warning and/or alarm notification is sent to the organization’s pre-identified MTinfo users.
