ARCS have over 200 years of rail experience in areas of technical design. expert advice. project management. superintendence. engineering management and strategic planning and advice.
ARCS are a group of industry professionals with specialist and significant engineering design experience in the application of innovative technology solutions to solve difficult problems. ARCS have extensive experience in the fields of SCADA. train control. asset monitoring. CCTV and related disciplines within the rail and related industries and have extensive experience in applied technology in many engineering fields.
Over the past 35 plus years ARCS consultants have worked and consulted to urban and freight railways in WA NSW. Victoria. Queensland and Tasmania and have been involved in the design. construction. implementation and support of the train control. SCADA. passenger information. asset monitoring and protection and operational systems for Westrail. Public Transport Authority. WestNet Rail. Brookfield Rail. Queensland Rail. Aurizon. Sydney Trains. BHPB. Rio Tinto. TasRail and a number of other private rail operators and contractors.
ARCS have significant specialist and real time software and engineering experience in the application of innovative technology solutions to solve d ifficuIt problems.
A key aspect of ARCS’s experience in rail is their experience and knowledge of train control systems. both in high density and dark territory. ARCS are able to undertake all aspects of work including preliminary design. scoping. development of business case. preparation of RFT documentation and project schedules. change management and training.
ARCS are also able to assist in calling of tenders. tender evaluation. and provision of technical superintendence for the works.
Projects and Case Studies
The ARCS Group has identified a simple and elegant solution to reducing potential buckling in railways. Variations in ambient temperatures during hot and cold weather can cause rail buckles and breaks in the rai impacting the safe running of trains. It is both costly to the asset owner and operator and dangerous to rail passengers and users. Traditional methods and controls apply system wide speed restrictions based on BOM current temperature predictions often this does not accurately reflect the true conditions of the rail.
