RailSense announces new distributor partnership with Hexagon SCCS to deliver its innovative rail infrastructure monitoring solutions

RailSense are delighted to announce a new UK distribution partnership agreement with SCCS, part of Hexagon, the leading provider of technologically advanced surveying hardware and software equipment. RailSense’s range of monitoring products and IoT devices offer rail professionals innovative ways to understand and manage their infrastructure and will fit seamlessly into the existing SCCS portfolio.


Remote condition monitoring has proved its benefits on countless projects, but particularly over the last few years where it has become an essential tool for managing risk. The rail industry has increasingly witnessed the benefits of remote monitoring too as it means less people on track and immediate access to data leading to faster decision making, reduced costs and ultimately a safer, more efficient railway. For infrastructure owners, managers and engineers, convenient access to live and historic data is extremely valuable.

RailSense brings robust hardware and an “Internet of Things” approach to offer real-time monitoring for track geometry, rail temperature and track drainage. The data can be accessed via a secure web portal on any smart device, automated alerts and alarms can be setup and the data can also be integrated into some 3rd part monitoring software. This means that RailSense products can be used standalone or as part of a wider, integrated rail monitoring scheme. These cost-effective solutions offer rail professionals innovative ways to understand and manage their infrastructure.

“We are thrilled to have signed a distribution agreement with RailSense. They have some fantastic monitoring solutions which will be of great benefit to the rail industry and fit perfectly into our portfolio. I look forward to a long and successful relationship with Andy and his colleagues and to further enhancing what we can offer our customers.”
