TagMaster Selected by Thales Deutschland for Train Detection System
Stockholm, Sweden, 26 June, 2012 - TagMaster, the leading producer of advanced RFID solutions for rail applications, has been selected by Thales Deutschland to provide RFID systems for use in their Train Detection System. This system will be used as part of the signalling system which Thales is supplying for their re-signalling project on the monorail in Kuala Lumpur. TagMaster’s total equipment value for the project is in the region of 3 MSEK. The TagMaster equipment has been delivered and will be installed during 2012 and includes HD Readers and customised software development.
These TagMaster Heavy Duty (HD) Readers will be trackside mounted and provide train location for the Train Detection System. HD tags will be fitted to the trains. The accuracy of the RFID system is particularly important since it provides information to fixed blocks signalling system and the vehicles have the ability to change direction on the track in some situations.
“Thales is a large and important supplier of signalling control systems and we are pleased Thales has selected TagMaster as a solution provider for their system. Both companies have worked with this development for some time and we expect to see subsequent projects as a result of this co-operation”, says Richard Holt, Director of Sales - Transportation at TagMaster AB.
