Descriptif / Historique

The company has been founded by Mr. Frauscher in 1987 and started with basic applications of wheel sensors. Over the years, the company has developed other products such as axle counters and tracking solutions based on acoustic sensing and is now world market leader in the field of axle counting.

In 2019 the Frauscher group joined the French group DELACHAUX, which is known for its efficient and reliably equipment for rail infrastructure but also in other sectors such as ports, aeronautics, logistics and mining.

Frauscher offers system integrators and rail operators simplified access to the necessary information for operating, monitoring and protecting their infrastructure.


  • Axle counting systems (FAdC, FAdCI and ACS2000)
  • Wheel detection (wheel sensors RSR110 and RSR123)
  • Tracking solutions (FTS and FAS)

Activités détaillées

Wheel detection :
Building on years of experience, Frauscher wheel sensors are characterized by maximum availability. Based on inductive principle, they generate an analogue signal. The signal is transmitted as DC signal to the indoor equipment of the wheel detection system. These components can as well be placed in decentralized cabinets along the track. Besides the rail, there is hence no active electronics with Frauscher wheel sensor systems.
Frauscher wheel detection systems even create reliable information under extreme temperatures, vibrations and electromagnetic influences, nondependent on the desired security level. The wheel sensor installation can be done quickly and easily thanks to a patented rail claw (clamped to the rail) as well as a pluggable cable (for certain sensors). Low maintenance cycles and low maintenance costs also guarantee minimal life cycle costs.

Axle counting :
Many railway operators around the world use axle counting systems as a reliable and cost-effective way of detecting track occupancy. These systems are able to transmit information that goes beyond the simple detection of occupancy and can integrate perfectly with switch and signaling systems by the use of modern interfaces.
The technological shift from track circuits to axle counters will continue to speed up due to a variety of factors such as increased availability, additional functionalities as well as reduced life cycle costs.
The different conditions and operator requirements call for flexible and individual adaptation of the systems. That's why Frauscher axle counting systems are developed in a modular and scalable way. They can be configured, commissioned, serviced and adapted easily and quickly, both by a system integrator and by the operator.
In order to implement the ideal solution for all the functional, operational and infrastructural requirements, Frauscher offers three types of axle counting systems.

Tracking :
In recent years, Frauscher has evaluated a range of fiber-based technologies and their applicability in the rail sector. The results he results showed that distributed acoustic detection had the greatest potential for the rail market. Based on this information, we have developed a rail-specific DAS solution (distributed acoustic sensing) which combines perfectly with proven axle counting and wheel detection products: Frauscher Tracking Solutions (FTS). The solutions based on DAS technology are still in the development phase for rail-specific applications. However, it is already evident at this stage that the principle of distributed acoustic detection is a technology that can be used to detect trains, monitor system components, and protect people and infrastructure. In the long term, it is thus possible to consider savings on various resources, while improving the efficiency of railway operations.
