RailComm has been selected to expand its wireless remote control derail system at Indiana Harbor Belt's RIP Track Facility. The customized local control panel, located within the shop, will be modified to include the new derail locations.

The panel provides wireless remote control to the derails and includes a keypad for advanced security and logging. The user is required to input a unique pass-code (PIN #) to operate the derail machines. All control panel operations are recorded and stored on a wirelessly linked PC workstation.

The data entries contain the name and trade of the operator, the nature of the operation and the date and time. The workstation allows supervisors, managers and other authorized personnel to review the operation logs and manage the system security.
