CattronControl™ Wireless Remote Control for Operating a Drain Train

APPLICATION NOTES

 

COMPANY

A leading international infrastructure group developed a revolutionary machine with outstanding success for removing rail debris.

CHALLENGE

The company needed to integrate a radio remote control system capable of controlling the movements of a highly sophisticated rail debris removal machine that removed ballast, bricks, silt and compact sewage that has collected in water collection pits. Once the material is removed, it can be recycled and reused as track ballast.

SOLUTION 

Prior to the implementation of the radio remote control system, the operator used a large console-style user interface that was tethered to the drain train via a series of cables (see pic). Cattron used the CattronControl brand LRC-L1 wireless controller and integrated the necessary controls into a single, wireless remote control system—giving the operator the freedom to move around the drain train as it is operated, instead of being tethered.
