Railway traffic is the backbone of both business and individual transport. Keeping the flow safe and on time is a challenge, especially due to the fact that railways are prone to inclement weather.
Strong winds, snowfall, floods, heat, freezing switches, and platforms … rail network operators have a lot to consider to ensure safe train traffic. Many of these meteorological phenomena occur in unique areas, thus knowledge of hyper-local conditions along the rails can be extremely helpful.
Key to knowing the actual situation along the rails are reliable, low-maintenance, and densely spread weather monitoring stations. The Lufft WS series of modular, compact weather sensors offers a robust and versatile basis for a broad range of monitoring applications.
