Network Rail High Output have turned to Datum’s RailtempMate to provide critical rail temperate measurements.
The three-year deal means Datum will provide around the clock real-time reporting with data viewable on smartphones, laptops and desktop PCs.
RailtempMate is an innovative and highly technology solution for providing remote rail temperature.
Datum CEO, Rory O’Rourke said: “We are delighted to be awarded this contract and aim to introduce further improvements to our services and products”.
There are more than 250 RailtempMate being used throughout the UK to provide critical rail temperature monitoring.
The RailtempMate is Network Rail Approved and removes the need for the previous labour intensive requirement of manually recording rail temperature.
Monitoring rail track temperature is critical to maintaining safety. Changes in temperature can cause tracks to move or buckle and need constant monitoring.
Network Rail maintains over 20,000 miles of track, used by over 4.5 million passengers every single day, a staggering 1.6 billion journeys each year.
Network Rail owns, manages and develops Britain’s railway – the 20,000 miles of track, 40,000 bridges and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations.
