A micro-processor based system of sensors and interfaces coupled with software that automatically adjusts the point and rate of deceleration for a train positioner.
The ability of automatic real-time adjustment allows each positioner cycle to be optimized instead of optimizing for the worst case scenario as was previously done. It also gives the positioner ability to adjust to nearly any configuration of trains without manual adjustment.
- Faster unloading times.
- Able to accept 286 kip, slackless drawbar or standard coupled railcars without damaging positioner drives.
- Eliminates the need for engineering studies and manually changing ramps each time a train configuration changes.
