MaxusX is a 3rd generation management and control system designed for underground rail bound equipment. It is a high-end multifunction man-machine interface that provides critical information in a simple manner to a vehicle operator. The unit controls all aspects around the operation of underground locomotives. The unit is configurable and expandable allowing upgrades at minimal cost. The unit is an upgrade to our current proven MAXUS system that is fitted on more than 1500 trains.
