Real-time remote monitoring of Vossloh AM843 locomotives

Keep your AM843 assets (Vossloh locomotives of the type G1700-2 BB) in perfect shape with real-time remote monitoring. Prevent failures and disruptions, ensure optimal fleet usage, digitalise and automate maintenance planning and send real-time actionable alerts to increase proactivity or to ensure a faster response time.

Real-time monitoring with an independent system enables you to monitor your heterogeneous fleet with just one device and to manage your data and maintenance with ease in one single place.

Out-of-the-box AM843 component interfaces

Railnova’s real-time remote monitoring device Railster enables you to connect to and to monitor the following components on the AM843 locomotives out of the box:


Monitor battery voltage, capacity, current, and the status of both the main and the supporting battery when your AM843/G1700 locomotives are running and turned off.


Monitor relevant fault codes from the Selectron CPU in real time and alert employees automatically when they need to take action on specific fault codes.


Track the location of your locomotives, the distance they traveled, their speed and their GPS history. Use real-time GPS data for geofencing alerts.

Caterpillar engine

Retrieve counter data to automate maintenance scheduling based on actual usage.

Oil sensor

Monitor oil levels and temperature continuously to act quickly when anomalies pop up.

Out-of-the-box use cases for AM843 locomotives

Operational monitoring

Follow up on the status of assets, fleet availability and potential restrictions. Know which locomotive is used for which traffic, what the composition of the train is or ensure optimal use of your locomotives by tracking events such as cold starts.

Oil (level) monitoring

Track oil levels and oil temperature throughout time for all your assets and receive low oil level alerts so you can take action before any real issues arise.

Inactivity monitoring

Monitor the usage of your locomotives and be alerted when an asset hasn’t been used for a certain amount of time to ensure optimal use of your locomotive and your fleet.

Fault code monitoring

Retrieve fault codes and make it easy to cut through irrelevant fault codes or noise by setting up your own (notification) rules to enable people to act on critical fault codes.


Keep track of the location and speed of your assets, view GPS history, track traveled kms for maintenance or billing purposes, set up geofence alerts to keep track of border crossings for energy allocation and more.

Digital maintenance planning & communication

Schedule events online and keep a full overview of the planning and progress of all corrective and preventive maintenance interventions for your entire fleet in one place. Share your planning and intervention details with clients, maintainers or other stakeholders.

Usage-based maintenance

Capture readily available real-time counter data, enter counters manually or compute your own to automate your preventive maintenance scheduling based on the actual usage of your AM843 assets.

Corrective maintenance workflow

Have your drivers or hotline personnel report corrective events straight from their phones, tablets or computers. Use QR-codes in your locomotives for fast and user-friendly defect reporting.

External data visualisation & centralisation

Visualize data from all your external systems (such as GPS or Selectron systems for the AM843) on one and the same platform, next to the available Railster data to maintain a complete overview of your fleet’s location and condition.

Data access

Already have systems in place to analyse AM843 data and to make it actionable? No problem, you can use the Railster to connect to the relevant data sources and to stream the data to your own systems in real time.

Data exploration

Not sure yet what kind of data you can access from your AM843 assets or not sure what you can actually do with that data? Connect the Railster or Railster Development Kit to any data source and explore the available data to identify new use cases.
