Abstract

A system is disclosed for monitoring condition of a railways installation
such as a points machine. The system includes a plurality of sensors (Si, S2,
5 S3-SN) associated with elements of the installation for monitoring parameters
indicative of operating capability of the installation. The system includes means
(12, 23) for processing the monitored parameters to determine whether the
parameters are changing relative to reference values and to determine whether
the changes are indicative of an increased risk of a malfunction in the
10 installation. The processing means may include a digital computer programmed
with condition monitoring and fault detection software. A method of monitoring
condition of a railways installation is also disclosed
