Prior to its rollout at the Wi-Tronix Chicago Conference on May 17, 2016, the company has revealed several features of its all-new Violet™ Locomotive Data Acquisition Recording System (LDARS).

“Violet™ is unlike anything the railroad industry has seen,” says Wi-Tronix Vice President Customer Strategy Chad Jasmin. “It is the first ‘smart’ LDARS. The advanced capabilities of Violet™ are revolutionary. Borrowing a term from the automotive industry, Violet™ is ‘fully loaded’ and its various features are seamlessly integrated into a single, all-in-one solution.”

For now, Wi-Tronix has revealed that Violet™ offers:

• Digital Video Recorder

• Event Recorder

• PTC Event Recorder

• Fuel Monitoring

• Crash-Hardened Memory Module

“More features will be announced at the Wi-Tronix Chicago Conference on May 17,” says Jasmin. “Most impressive, Violet™ is a platform for the future. Wi-Tronix will expand and grow Violet™. It has been built from the ground up by the world’s experts in event recorders and locomotive systems integration. It will only continue to get smarter. As technology advances, Violet advances with it.”

Wi-Tronix Executive Vice President Michael Heilmann calls Violet™ “a must-have tool for our company’s rail customers. Violet™ is a game-changer providing railroads with a unique, competitive edge.”

At the Chicago Conference, Wi-Tronix executives will present and detail Violet™’s advanced systems, and accept orders. In addition to Violet™’s formal introduction, the conference “covers topics of interest to the industry,” the company said. “The conference is attended by CEOs, operations and IT professionals as well as industry media, thought leaders, and government policy-makers.”
