Fairport, N.Y.-based RailComm said Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 that a North American railroad yard in Kansas City, Kan., has added a remote control derail system to the diesel shop.

The derail will be controlled using RailComm's Domain Operations Controller (DOC®) system within their facility. The RailComm DOC System allows a user to apply the derail remotely from a PC.

RailComm's 2.4 GHz RADiANT™ spread spectrum data radios are used to provide reliable and secure communication between the field and control locations.
