Designed to improve tractive effort, fuel efficiency, and reliability while minimizing life cycle costs using real-time data.
Engines & Controls
With a product range from eight to 16 cylinders, we give our customers the ability to choose an engine that best meets their needs ̶̶ long haul vs. switcher operations, horsepower vs. weight considerations ̶ while also providing available technologies to help improve fuel efficiency, lower engine speeds for improved reliability, and comply with stringent emissions standards. Wabtec can also provide several control system upgrades depending on the locomotive application. Wabtec’s Brightstar control system is perfect for bringing performance and protection to non-microprocessor based locomotives while Wabtec’s Common Control Architecture (CCA) upgrade unlocks the latest applications for performance, protection, and reliability.
Economic and environmental challenges have become a prevalent feature of our world. As railroads are required to do more with less and as weather conditions grow increasingly volatile, companies are finding it more difficult to manage fleet reliability and responsiveness and, as a result, are paying more attention to their traction systems.
