Release of Missing Link for Remote Crossing Monitoring Applications
FAIRPORT, New York – January 10, 2018 – TekTracking LLC announced the launch of the world’s first safety light performance monitor, the Safety Light Monitor (SLM).
The TekTracking SLM is a patent pending sensor platform used to measure & verify the operation of safety lights used in grade crossings, wayside signals, and similar safety critical lighting applications. The SLM is a wireless, self-powered, self-charged, robust multi-sensor device designed to operate over 10 years without intervention.
The SLM addresses the “missing link” in railroad remote condition monitoring applications. All required testing at crossing or signal locations can be performed remotely, except the requirement to manually view the visibility and alignment of each safety critical light. According
to TekTracking CEO Greg Fogarty, “our SLM opens the door to building greater safety into rail networks by enabling complete remote condition monitoring solutions”.
The Signal Light Monitor is easily mounted to the top of the sunshield on a safety critical light.
SLM sensors measure safety light intensity, light color, orientation of signal head and down-track viewability, sound, ambient temperature, shock and vibration. Data captured by each SLM are communicated over a private data radio network to TekTracking’s associated Edge Image Processor (EIP). The EIP is the master network controller for up to 64 SLM’s and performs image analysis on captured images
