RailComm DOC® Yard Automation System at CSXT Hamlet facility

Written by 
RailComm's DOC® Yard Automation System has been integrated with the existing RailComm Shove Track control system at CSX Transportation's Hamlet facility in North Carolina. RailComm's Domain Operations Controller (DOC®) PC-based control system controls the shove track system and provides wireless remote control from the yard tower to all equipped switch locations.

The DOC® System features eNtrance and eXit (NX) routing and stacked route planning capability, providing the tower operator with complete control of all routes within the yard. Automatic Failover was added to the system, providing a seamless transition in the event of a server failure. RailComm's 2.4 GHz RADiANTTM data radios provide a wireless communications network to link the office with the field locations.
