Overview: AccuSpeed

The AccuSpeed Machine Control Unit (MCU) is an advanced on-board Locomotive Control Unit (LCU) that 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, give throttle or apply brakes, and can concentrate more on train movements and track conditions.

  • The RCL-II platform seamlessly supports and integrates a wide variety of control functions, some of which may include: Locomotive Speed Control Slow Speed Excitation Control Electronic Position Detection (EPD) Pullback Stopping Protection (PSP) Electronic Handbrake Control and Monitoring Monitoring Locomotive Feedback Remote Monitoring through CattronConnect® Interface 
  • The RCL-II concept is based on a Locomotive Control Unit (LCU) that uses dual-processor architecture for: Receiving and decoding messages from the Operator Control Units (OCUs) Handling information from and to the various peripherals Providing locomotive control
