Solution for Rail

ROLLING STOCK HEALTH MONITORING

Maintenance and service is a key contributor to the total cost of train ownership. The total cost of maintaining rolling stock often exceeds original equipment purchase price. LORD MicroStrain® wireless sensing systems provide fleet operators with a quick and cost-effective path to embedding health sensing capabilities on both new and existing critical components for continuous, automated condition updates.
