BNSF picks RailComm for New Mexico yard

Written by 

Fairport, N.Y.-based RailComm said Tuesday BNSF has added the company's Blue Flag Indicator (BFI) System to its Belen Yard, N.M., facility.

The RailComm BFI System allows a user to apply blue flag protection to the fueling tracks through the use of strategically located field control panels. These panels are outfitted with keypad security that will only allow verified personnel to operate the system.

The BFIs are positioned in pairs at different locations along the track, the company said. RailComm's 2.4 GHz RADiANTâ„¢ spread spectrum data radios are used to provide reliable and secure communication between the field and control locations.
