How Can A CSM Shield Monitor Help In The Train IndustryTrain companies are always looking for ways to improve the customers' experience and their company. With a CSM Shield Monitor, train companies can get real-time data allowing them to make better decisions about how they should be operating.

The CSM SHIELD MONITOR aggregates data which is available in real-time that other systems can analyze. The main function of the monitor is to collect information about operational parameters on the track and then to provide analysis of those parameters in an easy-to-read format. This allows train operators greater transparency and understanding of their network more than ever before.

The CSM Shield Monitor has 8.1 Tbit/s of telemetry capacity, which allows the user to see real-time data in a safe and reliable way. The exclusive monitoring algorithm analyzes the data which is sent from the track and then displayed to the user. This is the only system to provide a real-time, flexible dashboard display of data from trains and a variety of other objects. 

Most importantly, the CSM Shield Monitor allows train operators to generate timely operational alerts for their passengers. By collecting data in real-time, they can provide insights into actions that could be taken to optimize service when there is something wrong, and they can take immediate action.

Even though CSM Shield is mainly designed for use in the rail industry, it is just as useful to address safety issues and other operational issues in other industries (e.g. utility companies). CSM Shield monitors are built to be simple and reliable. They have been successfully used on the tracks of numerous rail lines for many years. 

With the information displayed from a CSM Shield Monitor, all of the locomotive staff can be aware of any potential problems or issues with service. This information also provides train companies with the opportunity to save time and money and give their passengers a convenient and more enjoyable experience.


SWARTZ ENGINEERING's monitoring system has excellent performance. We recently met with railroads and power companies all over the world, who told us that the CSM Shield Monitor was operating like a “magic wand” to solve complex problems.

The CSM Shield Monitor from SWARTZ ENGINEERING is the first of its kind when it comes to providing real-time operational data from a number of track objects- such as trains, speed limits, overhead lines, etc. It provides valuable insights and helps to improve operations, leading to better service for passengers and drivers alike.
