Our premier product for Locomotive Remote Control (LRC) with the latest technological features making it the most advanced LRC available.
Accuspeed™ represents Laird Technologies' most advanced technology for safe and efficient speed based remote control locomotive operation.
Accuspeed’s light-weight, ergonomic Operator Control Unit (OCU) allows the operator to simply set the desired direction and speed and the advanced on-board Locomotive Control Unit (LCU)continually applies the right amount of throttle or brake to maintain the selected speed regardless of track grade or train mass. The operator is not required to constantly judge speed, giving throttle or applying brakes, and can concentrate more on train movements and track conditions.
Accuspeed’s highly intuitive two-way digital data feature with LED and text displays enables an operator to quickly understand any situation occurring during operation.
Accuspeed™ meets and exceeds FRA Guidelines 2001-01 for safe locomotive radio remote control operation.

Synchronized Time Sharing™ (STS) - U.S. Patent Pending
STS provides both a system and method for remotely controlling a number of locomotives on a single simplex (or half duplex) wireless channel within a given location. STS utilizes a GPS timing device on-board the locomotive, in conjunction with two-way digital data radios, to form a system that maximizes radio spectrum efficiency to near 100%.The key aspects of STS are:
Electronic Position Detection (Patent Pending) is the most advanced technology available for providing Pullback protection and other zone sensitive operational backup control. Combining position sensing information from track transponders with verification by Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) technology, EPD provides a positive means of initiating pre-programmed position-specific train operation commands such as speed override and stop.
EPD can be programmed for many applications. When a locomotive is at a certain track position, EPD can automatically initiate a variety of commands that will ensure certain functions that are supposed to occur activate as needed, and functions that are not supposed to take place are disabled. This additional protection from human error can dramatically increase the safety and security of your yard operation.
Digital Talkback™ with “InfoLink” True two-way digital communication between the Operator Control Unit (OCU) and the Locomotive Control Unit (LCU) through text display and function LED’s on the OCU.
Slow Speed Control - Allows locomotive to run at +/- 0.1 MPH over the entire load out.
WABTEC/Laird Technologies Digital Event Recorder- over 200 channels, with 96 hours of RCL data collection and storage, including all standard WABTEC locomotive functions.
Available RF Repeater - Extends operating range.
Interchangeability - One system can be MU’d with other locomotives.
Compact LCU - All equipment and enclosures designed for quick removal and replacement.
Radio Channel Selectability, externally, on board.
