Progress Rail Services Corp.: Control System Retrofits or Upgrades - EM2000

Progress Rail Services Corp.

The EMD EM2000 Control System is a microprocessor-based device that has been in continuous use for 20 years — supported by continuous product development and enhancements. The EM2000 is installed on 7,000 locomotives worldwide and improves the performance and reliability of older locomotives, the company says, adding that the EM2000 Retrofit is a cost-effective solution for upgrading older locomotives to the same full-featured microprocessor technology available with new locomotive models. In addition to managing all critical locomotive operating functions, the EM2000 system increases locomotive residual value, improves locomotive availability, improves tractive effort, and lowers life cycle costs, the company says.
