17/11/2010 - Flamatt

To secure the railway section near Flamatt, ImpactSentinel sensors were installed in the safety fence and directly integrated in the electronic alarm system of the SBB and thus the already existing system enlarged.

If a rock fall is detected, the ImpactSentinel sensors will activate a signal for slow approach for trains via the alarm system of the SBB. At the same time, engineers of the GEOTEST AG, who service the unit, will be informed.

05/11/2010 - St. Sulpice

The SBB uses the rock fall monitoring ImpactSentinel in St. Sulpice now as well. This is the first time that a completely autarkic system is applied, which is only operated through solar cells, because there is no power supply available. Four batteries are used for the storage of the power, furthermore an observation camera makes the operation even safer.
