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.
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.
Live data from wheelset operation significantly helps in choosing the right maintenance strategy and in demand planning.More
Innofreight Solutions GmbH develops customized, innovative wagons, containers, and unloading systems for rail transport companies. Around 2,000 InnoWagons and more than 15,000 containers are in use throughout Europe. Some of these are sold to customers, others are leased. However, compliance with the ECM regulation must be guaranteed in both cases.More
The new, modern locomotive workshop LOCMASTA in Gramatneusiedl received the ECM certificate for the maintenance delivery function ECM 4 on April 8, 2022 and is now about to be officially commissioned. In the interview, they revealed what challenges a "newcomer" has to face in the ECM certification process and how they master them through digitalization.More
