Wi-Tronix says its system provides CN with the benefits of ready access to locomotive on-board data, fuel conservation monitoring, and improved fleet productivity.
In 2007 Wi-Tronix was selected as CN's preferred remote monitoring solutions provider, with more than 700 systems "applied on CN's newest
EMD SD70M-2 and GE ES44DC and recently rebuilt GP38-2 locomotives," the company said. CN will continue to use Wi-Tronix's Wi-Tracker™ to maximize both locomotive asset utilization and fuel efficiency.
Wi-Tracker offers statistics on utilization, engine shut down and
duty cycle, fuel monitoring, locomotive fault and exception-based alerting, and geo-mapping, among other services. In addition, Wi-DownloadER provides remote access to download locomotive on-board data from any locomotive, any time, at any location, the company says.
