Hitachi Limited has selected Frauscher’s technology to be integrated in their axle counting system which will be part of their integrated signalling solution for mainline projects in India.
To support the projects in the most efficient way and to create a dedicated long term maintenance support, Frauscher India and Hitachi together founded an axle counting technology joint company, which will provide the axle counting system to Hitachi.
Alok Sinha, Managing Director, Frauscher Sensor Technology India Private Limited, said: “We are proud to support Hitachi with specific know-how to fulfil their customer requirements in the most efficient way. This also establishes the flexibility of Frauscher’s business model to adapt the solution to customer requirements. This is a great success in our strategy to be the market leader in India as an independent solution provider for train tracking and wheel detection. Frauscher India’s existing achievements in projects for Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation Limited, metro projects in Delhi and Kochi, various projects on Indian Railways and projects in Asian regions, distinctly demonstrate that Frauscher India is the preferred partner for major signalling system integrators in the Indian sub-continent.”
Frauscher Sensor Technology India Private Limited is a subsidiary of Frauscher Sensortechnik GmbH, Austria, the leading supplier of inductive sensors for use in the rail industry. Frauscher products are already in use in over 70 countries, and the entry into the Indian market is a step towards retaining its position as the global leader in its segment.
