The running of the UK’s congested rail networks is becoming more reliant on innovative digital technologies to keep services running smoothly. This is the message that telent’s Director Asset Management Reg Cook will deliver at Railtex 2019, where telent will demonstrate its rail sector expertise and proven solutions with visitors at stand L31.
During the event, telent will draw on more than 30 years of successfully delivering and maintaining communication systems for the rail sector, where it has integrated legacy assets with innovative new technologies to create smarter, more reliable services.
In addition, telent will demonstrate how its proven maintenance and station management tools, Arbitex, MICA and TRAMMS are at the core of its Reliability Centred Maintenance methodology. The methodology helps to drive improvements in operational efficiencies and reduce costs for customers, while improving safety.
As telent’s remote CCTV-monitoring platform, Arbitex reduces maintenance costs and increases asset reliability. It is already in operation for Transport for London and is currently being implemented as part of telent’s major stations CCTV contract with Network Rail.
This solution will be exhibited alongside telent’s station and asset management system MICA, which has been deployed across London Underground, at Reading and London Bridge stations and on Thameslink. MICA enhances communication, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and building management subsystems, integrating CCTV, public address systems, passenger information displays, help points, fire and intrusion detection systems and more.
TRAMMS – telent’s end-to-end maintenance management system – will complete telent’s Railtex line-up. Designed to enable the monitoring and measurement of fault levels and trends across a wide range of assets in many environments, TRAMMS also allows open access to live information on faults, from reporting, through diagnosis and repair, allocation and management of field engineers and management information.
Reg will share insights into telent’s Reliability Centred Maintenance methodology during a presentation, titled: “Reliability Centred Maintenance: driving operational and cost efficiencies.” In his presentation, Reg will explain how telent is driving greater reliability through remote monitoring tools to identify deterioration in asset performance and will demonstrate how telent is implementing its strategies and saving money for its customers. Reg’s presentation will take place in the Seminar Theatre on Wednesday, May 15 at 10.30am.
