Rollout of drive-related switch diagnostics

In order to optimize the availability of switches, a digital remote diagnostic system is used to detect potential faults before they occur. The DIANA diagnostics platform can be used for preventive maintenance to remedy faults. This should make it possible to reduce drive-related switch de­fects by up to 50%. About 23,500 switches have been connected to DIANA since the end of 2018.
