Out-of-the-box Euro 4000 component interfaces

Railnova’s real-time remote monitoring device Railster enables you to connect to and to monitor the following components on the Euro 4000 out of the box:


Monitor battery voltage, capacity, current, and the status of both the main and the supporting battery when your Euro 4000 locomotives are running and when they are turned off.

EMD engine

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


Collect fault codes and parameters from the main processing unit, as well as usage counters (km, kwh, engine hours) for accurate maintenance planning.


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


Track and be alerted about (low) fuel levels and refuels, follow up on fuel consumption per route to achieve fuel savings.

Out-of-the-box use cases for Euro 4000 locomotives

Battery monitoring

A low battery voltage, or battery failure can cause delays, cancellations and even damages to a locomotive battery. Real-time battery monitoring and battery alerts enable you to detect anomalies and avoid battery failures on your Euro 4000 fleet.

Fault code monitoring

Retrieve EMD engine 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.

Fuel monitoring

Monitor fuel levels and fuel consumption in real time. Be alerted about low fuel levels and refuels, and follow up on fuel consumption per route or load for e.g. fuel saving and eco-driving initiatives. Use alerts to decrease fuel consumption because of idling.

Operational monitoring

Follow up on the status of all your assets, on fleet availability and potential restrictions. Know which locomotive is used for which traffic, what the composition of the train is or any other relevant operational data from your entire fleet.

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.

Downtime analysis

Have defects automatically classified by component to gain an instant overview of weak components. Know exactly which failures have the highest impact on your fleet availability so you can set up an action plan based on the highest priority defects.


Keep track of the location and speed of your assets, view GPS history, track traveled kms for maintenance or billing purposes and set up geofence alerts to alert you of location changes or to send alerts to the right people based on the location of your assets.

Digital maintenance planning & communication

Schedule maintenance 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 Euro 4000 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.

Data access

Already have systems in place to analyse Euro 4000 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 Euro 4000 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.
