Visit us for locomotive engine heating, fuel & GHG reduction
A.S.T. Group is known as a leading systems electronic manufacturing group in Germany specializing in high efficiency, noiseless and low maintenance locomotive fuel fired engine warming idle-reduction systems such as ASTop-Idle to allow for locomotive shutdowns at ambient temperatures down to -45 deg. F. Ultra-low maintenance and robustly built to endure over 25 years of railway environment.
We also manufacture ABrake-Sense for locomotive handbrake monitoring for AESS shutdowns providing a positive verification of the locomotive model dependent handbrake holding force for train safety. This is an enhancement for AESS effectively extending shutdown time and resulting in less starting system failures.
A.S.T. supplies various products that include high speed coach torsional position systems as well as various load measurement products in the manufacture/rebuild of passenger cars.
A.S.T. provides wayside energy distribution systems for the railway and power electronics.
A.S.T. has an extensive array of load sensors and custom designs for many applications such as cranes, wind turbines and high speed trains.
Brands: ASTop-Idle - Locomotive Diesel Fuel Operated Heating for extended year round shutdown.
ABrake-Sense - Locomotive positive safety handbrake force sensing for AESS.
EKM - Railway vehicle measurement systems for production.
