The Violet Edge Connected Event Recorder, PTC Event Recorder and Digital Video Recorder (DVR) “are based on a robust Internet of Things (IoT) platform designed specifically for the rail industry,” Wi-Tronix notes. “Advanced technology enables remote access to synchronized information in addition to a suite of analytic tools and actionable alerts that make rail operations safer.”
The Violet Edge, introduced in 2016, is the latest version of Wi-Tronix’s “service-proven, rugged” Wi-PU. There are currently more than 12,000 Wi-PUs in service in all types of locomotives, in all types of service, across North America. The Violet Edge “breaks the traditional event recorder paradigm by combining data, video and audio, from all sources on the locomotive, into one synchronized solution. As a connected solution, the synchronized information is off-boarded from the locomotive frequently, and also upon demand or trigger event. It is secure in the cloud and easily accessible to authorized users via a web browser for incident investigation and analytics.”
