EC/LO Easy Control Locomotive System
Easy Control Locomotive System
A sophisticated locomotive control system for modernized locomotives in the European market. ECLO design principles apply the highest safety standards and is compliant in SIL3 (EN 50128, EN 50129, EN 61508) and the European Safety Standards for controlling locomotives EN 50239.
Dual Processor Architecture
The main processor card has two independent processors that operate in parallel and cross-check each other for improved safety.
The modular design uses plug-in cards allow for wide configurability, easy access and a quick exchange of damaged components.
Configurable Buttons and Switches
The EC/LO OCUs can be configured by our Application Engineering group to suit your needs.
Status Display with LEDs
LEDs on the OCU can be configured to inform the operator of various locomotive status events.
Multiple OCU Options
Five basic designs are available which vary in the type of controls and handling. All designs are designed for single hand use, allowing the operator to maintain a safe position on the locomotive with the other hand.
Increases flexibility of applications by offering standard relay, safety relay, optocoupler IO, analog output and CANOpen cards.
Additional data such as speed, current brake pressure and selected direction of data can be displayed on the OCU.
LED Flash Lights
LEDs build into the OCU are used for shunting operations at night.
RFID technology enabling control commands to be launched via contactless methods.
Pitch and Catch
Permits a two-person team to direct movements of the RCL system.
Allows the operation of four transmitters with different frequencies on one receiver.
