Petards Rail Technology

Increase capacity and decrease costs with our digital solutions

eyeTrain - no surround



Our eyeTrain solutions combine to provide a digital on-train surveillance subsystem designed to help maximise safety and performance, assisting train operating companies and train builders in meeting ever increasing passenger and industry demands.

The eyeTrain products, which can also be used separately, integrate into the system architecture of a train and have been specifically designed to perform in the harsh conditions of the rail environment, maintaining a high level of reliability, dependability and requiring a low level of maintenance. This will provide you with a very lean life cycle cost (LCC) and will help ensure your RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety) standards and requirements are met.

All of our products are supported by our back office software and services, which allow you to monitor and analyse status, condition and positional data in real time to avoid service and operating affecting incidents and failures.

Lifetime support

Our highly skilled engineers are on hand to support you from the specification stage of your project, further assisting on the installation of our products and software (including integration with third party solutions), any ad hoc maintenance requirements and finally obsolescence management.
