State owned rail company for regional railway in Australia utilises rail crossing controllers to monitor the health and status of mechanism functionality and alarms such as railway crossing signals/lights/ bells and the malfunctioning of the crossing barrier.

Our client required a single 3G modem to use with multiple data loggers, in multiple communications requirements, that were previously using 2G communications. Maxon offered the Intelimax HSPA+ Serial modem as the solution.

With the transition from 2G to 3G communications, the solution included the customisation of the AT Commands in order to be compatible with the clients’ legacy control equipment.

The client deployed this solution at hundreds of regional railway crossings where accurate monitoring of crossings has ensured optimised up time and thereby reducing risk of fatalities and property damage.

Maxon was also successful in providing a solution for this customer that is compatible across multiple types of control equipment.
