Also on display is a light-weight air dryer based on new adsorbent technology that resists vibration, eliminates clay dust contamination, can be completely saturated without damage and reduces energy consumption by up to 90 percent.
Norgren's Railine components, validated to meet rail requirements for extreme temperatures, shock and vibration, and wide voltage tolerances will also be exhibited and attendees may pick up a Railine catalog on DVD at the booth.

Vehicle Dynamics Simulation Goes Online
TUV Rheinland Rail Services - Booth 5250
TUV Rheinland Rail Sciences (TUV-RSI) has introduced online vehicle dynamics software that allows users to run vehicle dynamics simulations on-line with no technical knowledge of dynamics or simulations. Simply open an account with TUV-RSI and you can run full vehicle dynamics simulations from anywhere you have an Internet connection. Whether you are in your office, in the field or on a plane, if you have Internet connection, you will be able to run vehicle dynamics simulations and get results. Backed by Vampire software, TUV RSI vehicle dynamics online simulator will allow you to perform derailment investigations, investigate dynamic effects of operational changes, investigate effects of current or proposed track geometry on derailment factors as well as ride quality and effects of vehicle and wheel conditions on various dynamic factors.
Upload your current track geometry and see how your rolling stock will react to the current state of your track. TUV-RSI will store your results online and allow you to trend degrading dynamic behavior over time giving you the ability to be proactive to vehicle and track maintenance rather than reactive. TUV-RSI can provide vehicle models of your fleet to your account allowing you to model the dynamic behavior of your railroad from your own computer.
Innovative Safety Solutions
Vanguard ADA Systems - Booth 2901
Vanguard Detectable Warnings are liquid-applied and ready for traffic in approximately three hours for a worry-free, permanent ADA-retrofit or new construction. Vanguard non-skid seamless ADA Detectable Warnings are light-reflective, epoxy-based, and chemically and mechanically bond with the surface. No adhesives, no recesses required. No cracking, peeling or separating from the surface. Guaranteed for five full years.
Not just for new projects — now bring existing establishments up to ADA requirements as well. Available colors are standard yellow, white, red, blue and black
Tough Outdoor CA Wedge Camera for Mobile Applications
Seon Design Inc. - Booth 2912
Receive clear bus-exterior video in all weather conditions with the premium 650 TVL resolution outdoor camera that offers versatility and durability in a robust IP67-rated housing. The CA Wedge camera conquers rain and high-power pressure washing like no other thanks to an envelope designed to withstand extreme weather and prevent condensation.
With an imager that can rotate 350 degrees, mount the CA Wedge at any angle and end up with a horizontal picture — the camera is fully adjustable to increase the range of viewing angles. The CA Wedge supports lenses from 2.9 to 3.6 mm for wide-angle door-entry applications, and 16 to 25 mm lenses for identifying stop-arm violation vehicles. The CA Wedge provides color imaging in normal lighting and automatically switches to black and white in low-lighting conditions. Models with the optional infrared illumination deliver clear images up to 40 feet (13 meters) away in complete darkness.
