Stone India receives second EOTT order
Stone India Ltd has received the second order for End of
Train Telemeter (EOTT) device from Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd. The company
is currently executing its first order of EOTT from Indian Railways.
The EOTT device is an advanced telemetric system which continuously monitors
train brake system integrity, train completeness, train speed and train
position. It consists of two units - one in the locomotive and another at the
last wagon or coach - continuously communicating with each. When the driver
applies brake from the locomotive the EOTT device automatically applies brake
from the rear of the train as well. This helps to reduce the train stopping
distance and increasing train safety, a Stone India statement claimed.
