Frauscher U.S. Case Study: Tracking Trains in Houston with FAdC® and RSR180

The Frauscher axle counting solution met all of Houston METRO’s environmental, interface and reliability requirements.

A challenging operating environment

Weather is a major contributor to the complexity of Houston METRO’s operating environment. Factors include high heat, humidity, and supercell storms that produce sudden, heavy rainfall. These storms result in the sensors becoming submerged under water, especially in areas with embedded track sections. In addition, since the embedded track sections act as a drainage system for the city streets, the flowing water would carry trash and debris into these embedded sections. This debris would frequently trigger false occupations, increasing downtime and decreasing availability.
