Compliant solutions for the rail industry that drive productivity and safety on track.

Designed specifically for the road-rail market, Rail Pro combines a full range of controls on load, height and slew as well as a range of other inputs to comply with the rigorous UKRIS1530 and Europe’s EN15746 standards for road-rail (hi-rail) excavators working both on and off track.

Almost all track operating bodies (e.g. Network Rail) will have their own standards to which the maintenance bodies need to comply. This will heavily prescribe machine functionality and safe working practices on and around rail tracks. James Fisher Prolec’s expertise in machine movement and control ensures rail equipment is productive, safe and most of all, compliant to the standards imposed, in this most safety critical industry. James Fisher Prolec’s solution for RRV’s, PMERail has been used in countries from the UK, around Europe, in Asia and in Australia, in numerous and differing legislative environments with positive and compliant results.

The PMERail system comes with multiple inputs and duties as standard ensuring it operates optimally regardless of rail conditions and its current orientation. Like all our safety systems, PMERail provides full logging of operation and driver behaviour for later retrieval and playback, storing up to 30 days worth of data.

For more information, please read the PMERail user manual.
