Amsted Digital Solutions has announced a multi-year contract to supply 7,000 IQ Series™ gateways to Ermewa SA, a major European lessor of freight and intermodal railcars.

The IQ Series gateway, a solar-powered, rechargeable telematics platform, offers maintenance-free, real-time monitoring of crucial operational components without requiring wireless sensors. This platform is specifically engineered to meet the stringent requirements of freight rail applications and holds certifications adhering to the highest international, European, and North American standards.

The data gathered by the IQ Series device is transformed into valuable insights, which are accessed through Amsted Digital's cloud-based Supply Chain Visibility™ software platform, built on Microsoft Azure. The information provided by the IQ Series assists managers in optimizing maintenance schedules, promoting safe operations, enhancing shipment planning, and pinpointing bottlenecks to improve rail supply chain efficiency.

Ermewa will utilize the platform to obtain Load Status from Motion (LSM) data for tracking loaded and empty mileage without needing an external sensor, thereby enhancing wagon safety and services while controlling maintenance expenses. Future initiatives for the IQ Series will concentrate on monitoring the health of various components such as brakes and wheelsets.
