AEI Tag Readers
Railroad Software offers Automatic Equipment Identification (AEI) Systems to railroads and industrial shippers. Across North America AEI Systems are used by Railroad Software’s customers to monitor railcar movements into industrial yards and to build clean train consist data.
Railcar movement and status updates can be updated automatically using the AEI stationary readers at key locations across the facility. Coupled with Rail Terminal Management Software (RTMS), short line railroads and shippers can accurately track inventory and movement of railcars on tracks with AEI systems in place. Railroad Software has a proven track record in managing complex yard environments.
Advantages of using stationary
The AEI system offered by Railroad Software comes with two antennas that are placed on both sides of the track, enabling the railcars passing by to be properly identified in the event one electronically coded radio frequency (RF) tag on either side does not function correctly or is missing. Cellular modems are installed within the NEMA-4 enclosures and ensure that the device is able to connect at all times. Cellular Data plans can be included at an additional cost if requested by the customer.
