Miller Ingenuity ZoneGuard
ZoneGuard is an electronic
roadway worker protection
system that uses a
combination of diverse
and redundant detection
technologies to warn rail
maintenance crews of track
vehicles entering an active
work zone. This secondary
warning system protects
workers from human error
factors that can cause
close calls and accidents.
Customers can use either the
ZoneGuard fixed or portable
detection system. Just under
five pounds, the portable
kit can be transported from
jobsite to jobsit, while the
fixed system is permanently
installed and provides 24/7
train tracking capabilities.

Vehicle Inspection Systems
The VIS-Check
performance-based brake
tester with road simulator
measures braking force and
inspects brake, steering and
suspension components
to find otherwise
undetectable repairs. It
allows technicians to view
steering and suspension
components under harsh
operating conditions and
minimizes the risk of injury
to testing personnel by
eliminating the need for
vehicle deceleration. At
the end of the inspection,
the VIS-Check produces
a 'Safety and Efficiency
Report' to guide technicians'
maintenance activities
and reduce vehicle service
times to get vehicles back
on the road sooner.
