Maintenance of Way and Railcar Movers
Cattron radio remote control solutions provide a safety and productivity solution for a variety of applications. Whether it is for ballast cars or railcar movers, Cattron provides the solutions that enable workers to operate the equipment from a safe vantage point.
Ballast Car Control
Manually opening and closing ballast car hopper doors requires the operator to be very close to the ballast car. Exposure to silica dust, possible injuries from the manual operation of the release levers and walking too close to a moving locomotive are just some of the hazards encountered by operators. Radio remote control systems enable the operator to control the locomotive from a safe distance, minimizing the risk of injury.

The CCM-12 can control many types of machinery, including modern railcar movers. It supports vehicle bus standard SAE J1939 and is suited for applications requiring EN ISO 13849-1 Performance Level d. This system comes with the LRC-M1 controller.
