Wabtec westinghouse air brake technologies company IFDS-R

IFDS-R is an innovative system for fire detection and fire suppression activation for railway applications (rail and metro) and tunnel systems; the IR sensor analysis with infrared cameras is a technology that doesn’t measure temperature, but discovers energy in infrared band. IFDS-R offers several advantages against traditional systems: very fast detection, capability to recognize false threats, capability to localize the exact fire position, simple maintenance and installation.
