EAC / IAC

Overview

The RailComm Controller platform facilitates the remote operation of assets for yard automation applications. With machine-to-machine (M2M) technology, RailComm’s controllers provide multiple intelligent applications to interface with many industry standard field devices.

Depending on the scope of your RailComm solution, our IAC and EAC based controllers interface, translate, monitor, control, and expand input/output capacity.

RailComm is continuously investing in our platform to provide more value to our customers through greater functionality, higher availability, and more sophisticated monitoring and support capabilities.

Through our family of products, we proactively monitor and remotely troubleshoot our customer’s installations to ensure proper performance of their communication networks, computer hardware, and control systems. We also communicate to field devices at a ground level to monitor and perform remote diagnostics and troubleshooting.
