In contrast to GPS/GSM-based systems, the odometer does not incur any operating or consequential costs, while the portable RFID reader reduces maintenance expense. Service engineers can export the data locally via a USB interface or WLAN for further processing. Wheel set ratings which were stored in the odometer during the installation process allow the measurement data to be assigned and analysed directly. This data enables users to plan maintenance for each wagon safely and economically using ERP or maintenance software. Maintenance operations can be performed exactly when they are needed, ensuring greater wagon availability and lower repair costs.
In the case of leasing, the tamper-proof solution from Lenord + Bauer also allows transparent billing based on the miles covered by the goods wagons.
