  • Enhanced ATEX Certification for X-Rayl® Pointer S2: II 2G Ex ib IIC T6 Gb for Gas and II 2D Ex ib IIIC T85°C Db for Dust.
  • Over 5000 X-Rayl® Pointer in use.
  • Release of the Wireless Laser Sensor (LF Sensor) for detection of the loading status of Shimmns Wagons.
  • Release of the X-Rayl® Pointer “Silver Edition” featuring surface activation for better theft protection.


  • Over 3000 X-Rayl® Pointer in use.
  • Member of ITSS
  • Development of the Sensor Box with a display.
  • Development of the Sensor Box (2,4GHz) for Temperatures up to 260°C, tilt, humidity, derailment, loading status and laser ranging.
  • Development of an algorithm for the detection of flat wheels.
  • Development of the Laser Sensor, able to register distances up to 10m.
  • The Sensor Box with a Display and PT1000 recieve the ATEX-Certificate (Zone 1).


  • Over 1000 X-Rayl® Pointer in use. Development of new Series 17M Pointer with almost three times more energy and better positioning precision.


  • Certification as an official Wago Solution Provider.


  • Upgrade of the X-Rayl® Pointer-System (Access Pointer) for the Notification System of the German Railways.
  • Extension of the ATEX Certification (ATEX 94/9/EC) of the X-Rayl® Solar Pointers to Zone 1 and Zone 21.


  • Deployment of the DOT-Link Version 4.0 including features such as Geofencing for numerous Customers and a Map-Matching System for Eye-contact Analysis for the Advertising Industry.


  • A wide range of new products are introduced to the market: A Motion Sensor for position acquisition in tunnels, a High Frequency Tracking Pointer, and a Gateway Pointer.


  • Opening of the new Operation Site connected to a Solar Power Plant in Leobendorf, Lower Austria.
  • The X-Rayl® CamPointer for solar-powered remote surveillance reaches the market.


  • The X-Rayl® mileage meter ODO2 is fully developed and records wagons' traveled distances with an accuracy of 99.8%.


  • X-Rayl® is installed on flat cars transporting containers as a part of intermodal freight transport.
  • Implementation of a passenger information system based on X-Rayl® for the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB).
  • Development of a new solar-powered Testing Device, “Speech Pointer” (patent pending).


  • Schedule Monitoring is introduced for Passenger Trains and marks the first involvement in Passenger Transportation.
  • One successful research activity follows the other: Long-term solar tests are successfully concluded. Laser distance sensing for measuring load conditions of freight cars achieves market-readiness. Kilometrage (mileage) performance measurement is introduced and a patent is granted for the payload sensor.


  • DB AG, DOT-Telematik's largest and longest-standing customer, expands the use of X-Rayl® products on its coaches.


  • X-Rayl® is used on wagons of RCA, DB Netz, Railion, ERMEWA and OMV Europe-wide.


  • A patent is granted on the solar-energy powered GPS positioning device “X-Rayl® Pointer”. Subsequently, within the same year, Rail Cargo Austria is the next company to place a bulk order.


  • The German railway company Deutsche Bahn (DB) places the first substantial order for X-Rayl®. The quality and state of the GSM-R network are recorded in a position-dependent manner.


  • Philipp Tarter dreams of offering innovative, ground-breaking telematics solutions but finds the market lacking flexible and functional products. He decides to found DOT-Telematik GmbH in order to be able to develop and produce solutions himself.
