Can you believe we will reach the halfway point of the year in a few weeks?

Our team has kept up the work these past few months, time to present what new features our teams have been working on.

Read on to discover our new features!


As you may remember, we put an emphasis on rule engine alert recently. We talked about it in our February update post that you can read here: https://www.railnova.eu/product-update-february-2022/

So what’s new this time around?

>> Browse and visualise your alerts in the Data Inspector

You can now browse and visualise your alerts in the data inspector alongside the symbols and the fault codes.

You can quickly find opened alerts. Just click on the button to automatically display them for the selected asset and timeframe.

>> New individual live monitoring view for real-time alerts

After the vivid interest shown in real-time alerts, we added an individual live monitoring view accessible directly from the live monitoring view.

This page shows:

  • Live data,
  • Opened and closed alerts,
  • Map with infrastructure relevant to your company

>> Rule engine alerts now streamed into Kafka

For the users of Railnova’s Generic Kafka interface and Railgenius, we are glad to announce that the alerts created in the rule engine will be streamed into Kafka. You can read more about Kafka here: https://help.railnova.eu/en/articles/5201017-railgenius-consuming-real-time-telematics-data-using-railnova-s-generic-kafka-streaming-api

>> Alerts overview in the Reporting

We also added the alerts and rules to the reporting with two reports:

  • On the alerts, to see and export which alerts happened
  • On rule coverage, to get an understanding of how many rules are monitoring your fleets.

For the past few weeks we have been laying the groundwork for future component management within the Railfleet product.

If your Railfleet offer covers preventive maintenance, we have opened a free tier of component management where we migrated your existing maintenance counters and maintenance plans. So don’t be alarmed if you see that existing data has been migrated as follows: 

  • Counters are now linked to components and not assets
  • Preventive maintenance plans have been migrated to a new system based on what we call “Component structures” (these reflect the blueprint of components your want to track on an asset)

As an administrator, if you need any help with the new system our customer success team will be happy to support you. We are working on creating new up to dates guides and videos to help you on the matter.

If you are interested in component management, please reach out to us via the chat, so we can contact you and present our full features as soon as we are ready to roll them out in the coming weeks.

Want to consult one of these downloads for your own fleet, or a diagnostic download from another component? Get in touch with our team, we’re happy to help!
