Remote Monitoring

Data is more important than ever. With Loram’s remote monitoring systems and analytical services, railroads can receive the full financial benefits of their friction management program.

Data collection. Data reporting. Data analysis.

Loram’s remote monitoring system continuously collects data and turns it into understandable, usable, and manageable information. This streamlined information allows railroads and maintenance technicians to:

  • Maximise uptime

Loram remote monitoring units are compatible with any industry standard friction management system. Loram provides a web accessible portal to allow railroads and maintenance technicians to see data on an entire population of units or units in specific territories. Railroads can control permission levels of their maintenance technicians, so the maintainers can view data for only the specific units for which they are responsible.

System specific information includes:

  • Solar power voltage
