RailComm provides system for CSX Tennessee terminal

Written by 
RailComm has provided a wireless control yard system at CSX Transportation’s Erwin Terminal in Erwin, Tenn. Three RailComm Local Control Panels provide remote control to 31 GE Transportation System HydraSwitch power switch machines. RailComm’s Domain Operations Controller system is configured to control all switches individually, as well as provide eNtrance eXit routing functionality. Primary control can be passed from the DOC® system to any of the Local Control panels. On handoff, a dialog box appears that requires the dispatcher to enter the name of the crew member who is granted Local Control Panel authority.RailComm’s 2.4GHz RADIANT™ data radios provide a wireless communications network to link the office and control panels with the field locations.
