FAULT ALERT & ESCALATION PROCESS.
The CableGuardian system has configurable alarm and pre-alarm settings for the key parameters that are monitored, with the default settings being those contained within the Network Rail Standards. Alarm and pre-alarm settings are visually represented within the CableGuardian portal and are simultaneously sent to Network Rail’s Intelligent Infrastructure system using the current standard RS485 interface.
Additionally, Viper Innovations has worked collaboratively with Network Rail and has proven that this data can be directly passed from the CableGuardian Cloud to the Network Rail RADAR Cloud when this technology is released by Network Rail.
With CableGuardian you don’t have to wait for an alarm or even a pre-alarm in order to act and keep your Signalling Power System fully operational. It is possible to set alarm and pre-alarm values for each Sub-Network Section (this could be an entire feeder, part of a feeder, right down to an individual cable), which will also be visible within the portal.
By setting these Sub-Network Alarm Thresholds above the Network value it is possible to create an advanced warning of potential faults or long-term degradation long before they become an emergency.
