Rail Yard Data Management

RYDM is a modular based data collections system.  Conceived through a Black Belt project, it has morphed from simply tracking fuel usage to monitoring all tank levels (Sand, lube oil, fuel oil, etc), email based fault notification, Locomotive tracking, pressure monitoring, much more.  The system, at its core, is run with Allen Bradley Micrologix and uses a single cellular point communicate data back to our servers for instant access via website to all site generated data. 


With over 30 years’ experience working in the railyard, we understand the need for quick service.  All RYDM systems have secured remote access for cycling power on key devices, modifying PLC’s and any PC onsite.  This is crucial for a system installed coast to coast.  


RYDM doesn’t stop at the service center.  We have installed a fuel tracking system on LST trucks to accurately monitor remote locomotive fueling.  These trucks are equipped with a 12V RYDM system that runs on its own 12v battery.  This system uses all standard RYDM equipment making servicing and part replacement universal.  All data gathered is then synced and populated on our website.   


The topics above explain what we have done; but the most important point to remember is: We are constantly developing our system to fit our customer’s needs.  Whether it’s locomotive fuel tracking, or the desire to make your inventory web accessible, we can do it.  We find that our system has pulled away from the competition due to the integrity and experience we bring to the field. We are willing to work with the customer to make sure their needs are met.
