Advanced Rail Systems: Yard automation technology

Advanced Rail Systems offers a range of yard automation technology, including the low-profile YM-16 Switch Machine (shown), which stands 8.25 inches tall while maintaining a 2,000-pound redundant spring holding force. The switch machine is applicable for derail and blue flag control systems. 

The company also offers the HM-17 machine for hump yards, which offers more than 2,000 pounds of holding force, half-second throw time and a low-profile design; and the ARS Pathfinder Processor, which can be integrated with other processor options, including the 3Z Automation processor.
