Real-time remote monitoring on Vossloh G1000 locomotives

Keep your G1000 fleet in perfect condition with real-time remote monitoring. Prevent failures and potential disruptions, digitalise and automate maintenance planning, and create 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 G1000 component interfaces

Railnova’s real-time remote monitoring device Railster enables you to connect to and to monitor the following components on the G1000 out of the box:


Monitor battery voltage, capacity, current, and the status of both the main and the supporting battery when your G1000 locomotives are running and turned off.


Monitor fault codes in real-time, turn live parameters into actionable information and access or create your own counters for 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.

MTU engine

Monitor MTU fault codes and engine parameters in real time to spot anomalies in time, and use engine data to perform maintenance at the right time.

Voith controller

Monitor Voith fault codes in real time and automatically turn live parameters into actionable information.


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 G1000 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 G1000 fleet.

Fault code monitoring

Retrieve fault codes from the MTU, Voith diagnostics port, MVB bus or other systems, make it easy to cut through irrelevant fault codes and noise by setting up your own (notifications) rules and enable people to act on critical fault codes.

Engine monitoring

Keep an eye on live parameters such as coolant temperature and RPM, and automatically be alerted of anomalies. Monitor engine hours for accurate preventive maintenance planning.

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.

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 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 G1000 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.


Monitor and report on the actual usage of your assets and on their energy consumption for billing purposes, or track refuels for billing reconciliation.

Data access

Already have systems in place to analyse G1000 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 G1000 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.
