MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ZTR Control Systems, a leader in control systems for locomotive modernization and equipment monitoring, confirmed it has successfully installed over 400 units of its flagship, NEXSYS™ III-i microprocessor-based locomotive control system, since its official release in 2012.
With rail shipments on the rise and productivity continually top of mind, rail companies are frequently torn between purchasing new locomotives and modernizing their existing fleet. The growing number of NEXSYS III-i installations demonstrates how rail companies are increasingly choosing to modernize, at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new.
“Since NEXSYS III-i was launched a few years ago, we have successfully installed over 400 systems on a wide variety of locomotives around the world, including; SD40-2, MP15, GP15, GP38-2, GP38DC, GT22-2 and GT26-2. It’s a high performance solution that meets the demands of the industry,” said Matthew Scott, General Manager at ZTR.
ZTR continues to be the locomotive control system supplier of choice as demonstrated by the performance of NEXSYS III-i. The upgraded system extends the life of a locomotive by improving reliability, adhesion and maintainability. Integrated with SmartStart® automatic engine start-stop (AESS) technology, NEXSYS III-i also reduces locomotive idling, fuel consumption and emissions. ZTR ensures that NEXSYS III-i comes equipped with industry-leading diagnostics, remote connectivity options and best-in-class support and service.
“With growth forecasted to be well over 60% compared to 2014, we appreciate the confidence our customers have in ZTR and look forward to providing high quality locomotive modernization solutions to support their operations,” commented Scott.
