Stadler tracks trains with HARTING RFID solution

Stadler tracks trains with HARTING RFID solution
  • Did the train pass this position?
  • Is the railway car in maintenance area?
  • On which track is the train?


The Stadler Pankow GmbH reliably identifies regional trains of type Regio Shuttle at speeds up to 120 km/h using RFID. They were looking for a solution that is independent of mechanical and environmental influences, and found a wireless identification system. Stadler decided for a RFID solution that is approved and field-tested according to railway standards, a robust and maintenance free RFID system from HARTING.
