BOLINGBROOK, Ill. — Wi-Tronix has signed a contract with Australia’s Co-Operative Bulk Handling Group to equipment 25 of its locomotives with a preventative maintenance monitoring system.

The technology company will deploy its Wi-Nostix technology software to monitor locomotive engine performance. The software "learns" normal engine performance by gathering existing sensor data and uses advanced analytics to detect unusual patterns in operating characteristics. When the system detects an abnormality, the software will automatically notify the company to address the issue before a failure occurs.

The Australian co-op group is operated in partnership with Watco Cos.

Wi-Tronix is an Illinois-based technology company that provides a variety of remote monitoring systems for railroads and other markets.
