Engineering Train Observation System

As part of a health and safety-led upgrade, our client required a weather-proof monitor to be used on engineering trains – trains with one or more rail cars intended for internal non-revenue use. The unit was used to locate personnel and ensure they were aware of, or away from, any dangerous activity.

Requirements for the display included:

* The screen had to be sunlight readable and capable of withstanding an extremely wide temperature range (-30 to +85 deg C was achieved in this case)

* Zero condensation and a damage resistant screen assembly using an optically bonded protective window and anti-reflective film

* Custom interfacing and cable set

* Upgraded video electronics

* Wide input voltage range

Pacer supplied a complete rugged outdoor display, plus an additional slave monitor for in-cab use which shared some of the above features.
