Distance monitoring from a safe distance – the OPTIMESS RD always has the adjacent rail in sight.
Distance monitoring also possible from a greater distance
It can be mounted directly on the bogie. The large measurement range (up to 6 metres) enables distance monitoring even from a greater distance and outside the danger zone.
Thanks to the large temperature range (-20 to 50 °C) and integrated condensation protection, safe measurements can be carried out even in wintry conditions.
For renovations and laying new tracks – OPTIMESS RD
OPTIMESS RD can be used for laying new tracks as well as for renovating existing railway infrastructure (for example renewing the track bed). Customised operating and display units as well as software extensions are also available on request.
