Rail Asset: Compatible with Calipri measurement data

Post from 30. June 2020

Full interface flexibility: BOOM software provides this especially in the module Rail Asset. BOOM has implemented its own interface for the auto-import of data from the globally operating measurement technology company NEXTSENSE. This allows automated import of measurements from the Calipri measuring device into Rail Asset.

Rail Asset allows highest compatibility with different hardware suppliers. To expand this offer step by step, BOOM Software has implemented its own interface based on XML: With this interface, data from measuring devices of the worldwide operating company NEXTSENSE can now be imported automatically. The focus of the interface implementation is the contact-free NEXTSENSE profile measuring device “Calipri”, which is used in the wheel-rail-system in railway traffic engineering.

 

Smarter import

The auto-import of “Calipri” is simple: Via a service the files are regularly retrieved, checked for schema correctness and listed in the import tool. With “Start import” or alternatively automatically, an attempt is made to import the measured values of an existing component that is stored in the master data. Possible errors are also displayed in the import tool. The only requirement is an available network connection. The imported measurements are displayed in the measured value history of the component and can be compared and evaluated there. Wheel set profiles (if they have been transmitted) can also be retrieved and displayed.

Railway-specific norms and standards: Simplification through digitalization
Post from 17. January 2023

In rail transport, the topic of safety is extremely wide-ranging and complex - this is primarily because the protection of life and limb, of passengers, residents and people involved in rail operations, as well as of resources such as vehicles and infrastructures, is paramount.

SKILLED WORKERS IN THE RAIL INDUSTRY ARE IN DEMAND MORE THAN EVER: Fokus on workshops (PART 2)
Post from 13. July 2022

The shortage of skilled workers has been a serious challenge for rail vehicle workshops for years. Workshops have the ambition to achieve the highest possible utilisation of capacity and at the same time ensure the highest possible level of quality in the work carried out on the rail vehicle. However, the lack of well-trained skilled workers makes it difficult to implement the ECM2 process specifications.
