The Problem:

A metropolitan transit system needed to simplify multiple control panels into one system controlling radio, intercoms, doors, windows, fuel and check list operations.  Rather than having individual control panels for each on-board system, the customer need a completely integrated controller to be operated by the train conductor.

The Solution:

Significant reduction in service and maintenance costs
Extreme durability with constant use
Ruggedized construction withstands near constant shock and vibration

Derived Benefits:

Rated for use from -40 to +125 deg C
Decreased downtime and service costs – especially important in remote locations
Offer switches that are hand or foot controlled
Readily customizable for size, graphics, mounting, illumination, etc.
