NZ Bus Transit Network

New Zealand Bus Transit Network

RFI supplied over 1100 low profile transit antennas for mobile radio and GPS requirements. To facilitate driver communications and tracking applications in New Zealand’s two largest cities, the systems integrator utilised our antennas for system monitoring and driver location tracking

Metro rail

Indian Metro Networks

RFI supplied our innovative Broadband Panel antennas for various Metro projects in India. We utilised our unique R&D capabilities to deliver a specialised “corridor” antenna solution, designed specifically to suit underground rail tunnels.

Sydney Trains

Sydney Train Tunnel Coverage

Working with Optus, RFI delivered a turnkey multi-band, multi-operator 2G and 3G mobile phone solution to provide enhanced mobile phone, public safety and PMR radio coverage in some of Sydney’s most populated commuter train routes.

Monitoring railway control functions

State owned rail company for regional railway in Australia utilises rail crossing controllers to monitor the health and status of mechanism functionality and alarms such as railway crossing signals/lights/ bells and the malfunctioning of the crossing barrier.

Our client required a single 3G modem to use with multiple data loggers, in multiple communications requirements, that were previously using 2G communications. Maxon offered the Intelimax HSPA+ Serial modem as the solution.

With the transition from 2G to 3G communications, the solution included the customisation of the AT Commands in order to be compatible with the clients’ legacy control equipment.

The client deployed this solution at hundreds of regional railway crossings where accurate monitoring of crossings has ensured optimised up time and thereby reducing risk of fatalities and property damage.

Maxon was also successful in providing a solution for this customer that is compatible across multiple types of control equipment.

TLA4100 Helps Adelaide’s Traffic Management System

The SA Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure working to find smarter, more efficient way to move people and goods across the Adelaide roads network developed AddInsight, a system based network of Bluetooth receivers to monitor the performance of the roads network in real time. These receivers pick up Bluetooth signals from devices in passing vehicles such as mobile phones or hands free kits. The system then calculates how long it takes for these devices to pass between two Bluetooth receivers, giving travel time for that road segment. The RFI TLA4100 antenna is being used as the Bluetooth receivers used by AddInsight. The TLA4100 is a fully ruggedized antenna designed for use in high impact environments.

NZ Waterview Tunnel Rebroadcast

RFI supplied the system for the rebroadcast of AM/FM radio stations and local Police, Fire and Ambulance two-way radio networks (including duplex and simplex fire-ground channels for in-tunnel incident communications). A new UHF digital two-way radio network for Roadway Operations & Maintenance (O&M) personnel is also included.

Sydney Hills M2 Tunnel upgrade

RFI provided a communications solution to deliver Break-In Emergency Services radio coverage and AM/FM rebroadcast (RRB) system as part of the $550 million Sydney Hills M2 tunnel upgrade.

Sydney Harbour Tunnel rebroadcast major system upgrade

The AM/FM radio rebroadcast system is a relatively minor, but vital, component of the overall total intelligent transport system not only to maintain the rebroadcast of AM and FM radio stations within the Tunnel, but also to ensure that vital incident management capabilities can be maintained In the event off a sub-system failure. An audio break-in capability allows pre-recorded or live audio announcements to be inserted into the AM and FM rebroadcasts to notify drivers of incident information via their car radios. Trantek MST sought a partner who could design, install and commission the rebroadcast system upgrade as a turnkey sub-contractor.

Energy Solutions

Northwest Rapid Tranist Rail Facility

RFI supplied, installed and commissioned a 1.1mW solar system at the time, the largest ever installed on a NSW government building. The project in Rouse Hill was delivered on a strict timetable for the Northwest Rapid Transit Facility. The solar system generates 1.5 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year, enabling Sydney Metro HQ and the new metro stations to reduce electricity operating costs and its carbon footprint.

The size of a football field, this project is one of the largest roof top solar systems in Australia, consisting of 3287 340W solar modules and 15 large commercial grid-connected inverters.
