RailComm provides remote control derail system to Florida Amtrak facility

Written by 

RailComm has provided a wireless remote control derail system at Amtrak's Maintenance Facility near Miami, Fla. Two customized Local Control Panels, located within the maintenance building, provide wireless remote control to the derails.

The panels include a keypad for advanced security and logging. The user is required to input a unique pass-code (PIN #) to operate the derail machines and 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.
