The UK's biggest rail show, Railtex 2017, has opened its doors to the public - and ByteSnap's consultants were in the thick of it! Railtex is an international showcase for the latest trends and technology in the rail industry. One of the main themes in the lecture theatre at the exhibition is remote condition monitoring - which directly ties in with one of our demonstrations! Our remote monitoring model with movement sensor shows how the technology can help automate and log remote events at sites. This can be used to get accurate information about events that take place for evaluating damage caused by vehicles striking bridges, failure of line equipment, land slippage and many other areas of concern that can be hard to monitor due to their [...]
What ByteSnap thinks is in store for the electronics design industry this year... 2015 was a year of colossal expansion across the technology spectrum – notably in the smart home, wearables and automotive sectors. But what can we expect for 2016? Here are our top ten predictions for the electronics design industry next twelve months... The Smart Home Will Continue Its Relentless Drive A technology push, as opposed to a consumer pull, will be maintained on the IoT front in 2016. More firms are making their stake in the Internet of Things. Our electronics design team has been involved in more IoT projects, as interest home automation continues to expand. We’d like to see an industry consensus on IoT standards begin to take shape this year. The sheer [...]
Catch our embedded electronic designers caught up in some trade show time travel - in this whistlestop tour of our stand at Railtex 2015. With remote monitoring a primary concern for the rail industry, we displayed our low power remote monitoring station and 10km data logger at last month’s rail exhibition, at Birmingham’s NEC. Watch 4 days in just over 1 minute It was our first time attending Railtex 2015 - the UK's biggest rail show - so a big thank you to the visitors and customers who stopped by our stand. Enjoy the video!
Low Power Remote Monitoring System features among key themes at Railtex 2015 ByteSnap's debut at the UK's biggest rail show is underway at the NEC. (Come and see us at stand V90!) Our remote monitoring system and data logger attracted interest from visitors - as remote monitoring and asset management are of critical importance to the rail industry. With a huge, intricate asset portfolio, Network Rail says one of its main tasks is to continually maintain and refurbish it effectively, and be aware of any rapid wear and tear as early as possible. Remote monitoring systems help Network Rail address major infrastructure challenges, including: - Condition monitoring of buildings and assets - Bridge strike reduction - Remote monitoring of electrical and signalling assets - Remote condition monitoring of track [...]
Features Rugged Data Logger Fully submersible rugged data logger debuts at Railtex 2015 Custom electronic design team exhibits at Railtex 2015 on stand V90 ByteSnap Design, an embedded electronics consultancy with strong rail industry expertise, will unveil its high-reliability, low-power remedy to the rail industry’s remote monitoring headache at Railtex 2015. The company will also be highlighting its experience within the electronic display and diagnostics sectors. As the rail industry undergoes the largest expansion for over a century, rail companies are looking for innovative ways to collect and transmit data about every section of line to ensure highest levels of safety, security and reliability. ByteSnap custom designs low-power wireless monitoring equipment that can be installed in remote locations to transmit information in real time over long distances. Using electronics [...]
ByteSnap will unveil a high reliability, low power remedy to the rail industry’s remote monitoring headache at Railtex 2015 in May. Custom Electronic Design The demonstration consists of two units; a remote monitoring station and a rugged waterproof data logger. The solar-powered station transmits weather data via a 10 kilometre low-power radio link. The practical applications for and benefits to rail infrastructure maintenance are substantial. Low Power Monitoring Director Dunstan Power said, “We see that low power monitoring equipment, which can be installed in remote locations transmitting information in real time over long distances, is vital to addressing reliability requirements of the rail industry. "We design bespoke solutions for customers; this is just an example of our expertise in rugged, very low power designs that can be adapted for [...]
