Protran Technology’s SwitchInspect software is a PDA computer-based system to be used for conducting turnout inspections and collecting and evaluating data. SwitchInspect guides the inspector through a complete and thorough evaluation of every component in the turnout. With condition checks and measurement data, maintenance priority indices can be calculated to aid in resource allocation and maintenance planning. The inspector records the results of each individual inspection item on the PDA in a numeric rating form.
