June 6, 2017 – Considering space constraints of any rail locomotive as prime real estate, Laird announced the Transport Locomotive Control Unit (LCU), a solution for industrial rail applications.
The Transport LCU, which is now available for supply, is installed inside the locomotive and serves as the controlling system for remote, wireless control movement of a locomotive through a railyard and is designed as a small space solution. The Transport LCU pairs with either the wearable Paddle or Toggle Operator Control Unit (OCU) regardless of the operator’s location in the yard.
The Transport LCU is noted for its single-cabinet design and fewer maintenance and repair components.
