What do you think?


Until now, we have been supporting our customers with more than 1,400 catenary measuring devices to expand the global railroad network. They were just fed up with bulky devices that were either too imprecise or measure too slowly.


We believe that everyone should get quick and precise measurements at the push of a button. Portable measuring devices that can be used flexibly, can be a solid alternative. This only working, if you really save time and are therefore independent of your environment. That is why we develop weather-independent measuring devices with set up in only 2 steps, with which we guarantee fast measurement results worldwide: with measuring accuracy up to 0.001 m.


Decide for yourself how precious your time is and simplify so your contact wire measurements.
