ZTR Adds 25% Tractive Effort Boost to EMD Dash-2s without Replacing Existing Dash-2 Control System

MINNEAPOLIS --(Business Wire)--

The new BOA™-WS from ZTR Control Systems is designed to integrate into Dash-2 systems with minimal installation effort and adds automatic short-term current regulation for traction motors and the main generator.

"Although designed with microprocessor technology and sophistication software, BOA-WS has been engineered to withstand the rugged rail environment," said Dave Brooks, ZTR Product Development Manager. "In addition, the flexible design lets you maximize product life with future expansion into an even more feature-rich control system."

BOA-WS is a cost-effective, reliable way to improve tractive effort. The system features intelligent sanding control, log and event counting, and simple browser interface.
