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, it 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.
