Accuspeed Remote Control System​

Accuspeed is a top-of-the-line speed control system enabling operators to control driver-less locomotives from a safe vantage point. Used by Class 1 rail in North America, the system continually applies the right amount of throttle or brake to maintain the selected speed regardless of track grade or trailing tonnage. With Accuspeed, the operator is not required to constantly judge speed, give throttle or apply brakes, giving them the ability to focus on train movements and track conditions. 

Accuspeed Features

Speed Control ​

Our patent-protected speed control feature streamlines locomotive operation by handling the complexities of throttle and brake manipulation to maintain the speed selected by the operator.​

Speed

OCU-III​

OCU-III supports an impressive feature set including an embedded GNSS location, a patented method for pushing OCU positional data to the RCL system, Bluetooth link to the internal archive record and a Wi-Fi port to accommodate future expansion. ​

feature

Internal Archive Record​

Accuspeed has an internal archive record that logs  hundreds of system events, remote control data points and manual mode data. The archive record is the primary source for system monitoring and troubleshooting. ​

feature

Extended Range through RF Repeaters​

All available RF protocols support repeaters for extending the RF range from one mile line-of-sight to much farther. ​

Communication

Two-Way RF Communication​

Tri-color LEDs and an OLED display on the OCU-III are utilized to relay information from the locomotive control unit to the operator. ​

Flexible

Self Monitoring    ​

The system constantly monitors the state of the outputs for proper operation. In the event of a conflict of intended output vs. monitored input, the system will take evasive action to safely stop the movement. ​
