TRACKWATCH integrated monitoring systems are designed to log all signalling activity, enabling failures to be located and potential problems to be identified. Suitable for mobile use or permanent installation at level crossings and large interlockings, the modular concept has been developed by Solartron.

Isolated measurement pods are connected to spare signal relay contacts, and use low-current resistance measurement techniques to record transitions on up to 32 channels with 20ms accuracy. Signalling installations with up to 1600 relays can be monitored by one unit using a PC-based controller running Altair logging software.

The controller has a modem for alarm reporting and data uploading, and a hard disc for data storage. Track circuit diagrams are used to display stored data using Altair analysis software centrally or on a portable computer.
