RailSense’s TempSense® Receives Network Rail Approval: Advanced Track Safety Monitoring Solution for Rail Networks

Emsworth, UK, 9th June 2023

RailSense Solutions Ltd, the leading innovator in railway safety and maintenance technology, is proud to announce that its cutting-edge TempSense® system has received Network Rail approval for use in the United Kingdom across all line types including high speed switches and crossings. TempSense® is a remote track temperature monitor (RTTMD). It is designed to be installed on a rail network track to regularly monitor and report the temperature of the rail and transmit alerts when critical rail temperatures are reached. 

The TempSense® system is already in use on several UK rail networks, where it has demonstrated its effectiveness in detecting and monitoring track temperatures. With real-time updates and continuous logging capabilities, the system allows rail operators to intelligently plan train speeds, monitor track critical rail temperature (CRT), and keep the railway running as reliably as possible with improved passenger safety.

One of the key benefits of TempSense® is the improved worker safety it provides. The autonomous devices eliminates the need for staff to be on tracks to take and record readings, reducing costs, errors, and risk. The system alerts rail operators to potential issues via mobile devices and a dedicated dashboard, ensuring timely intervention and maintenance when required.

Designed for zero-maintenance and ultra-low power consumption, the TempSense® devices are rechargeable, with the battery lasting > 12 months to further enhance their efficiency and environmental friendliness. The long design life of the devices ensures a lasting investment in rail network safety and reliability.

In addition to monitoring track temperature, RailSense also provides solutions for measuring lateral movement and voiding through their VoidSense® product, and flooding and silt level sensing in drainage assets through TrackWater. Their track based products operate on high-speed lines, with the ability to be used on high-speed switches and crossings, further expanding their applicability across various rail networks.

“The Network Rail approval of our TempSense® system is a significant milestone for RailSense and a testament to the innovation and effectiveness of our technology in enhancing the safety and reliability of rail networks,” said Tristan Lloyd-Baker, Director of RailSense. “We are committed to developing advanced solutions that address the evolving challenges faced by the rail industry, and we are excited to see the positive impact TempSense® will have on rail operations across the UK and beyond.”
