Efficient operation is all about fluidity, keeping freight cars moving on schedule and to the right destinations. Currently, cars can spend up to two-thirds of their transit time standing idle in yards. That’s a lot of lost throughput—and targeted reduction of idle time creates a tremendous opportunity for improving bottom line profits.
RailComm Yard Control Solutions
- Remote control of an individual power switch, derail device, flagging device, heaters, gates, lights…you name it, we will control it.
- Automatically line routes through our Stacked Routing feature interfaced to your car management system.
- Remote control from the tower workstation, from strategically located field panels, on-board controller and/or from handheld controllers.
- Many yards already have incorporated power switch machines, either as a stand-alone “convenience” switch or as a part of an existing control network. This is an ideal situation as an even greater return on your investment is possible. We are experts at converting your legacy system into the Integrated Automation architecture.
