McCain Introduces RRIP to Boost Public Safety at Railroad Crossings

Innovative Railroad Interface Panel Saves Traffic Agencies Time and Money

VISTA, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2014) - McCain Inc., a recognized leader in the supply of advanced transportation solutions for safety and mobility, today unveiled an innovative railroad interface panel (RRIP) that advances public safety and operational efficiencies at railroad crossings in adherence with the proposed regulations for the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) standard.

McCain's RRIP serves as a single termination panel for railroad field wires and isolators in any traffic controller cabinet. Data collected from six inputs enables traffic agencies to easily monitor railroad status, initiate track clearances, and place the signal in flash should a fault occur.

Most railroad and traffic cabinet communications are manually wired in the field by traffic technicians. This cumbersome task easily translates to lengthy installations, maintenance and troubleshooting calls, which ultimately cost taxpayers money. McCain's RRIP drastically reduces the time required to establish communications and allows technicians to visually confirm wiring accuracy with LED status indicators. Plus, having a single system citywide rather than custom wiring at each crossing, makes maintenance faster and more efficient.

"Modern technology enables more and more data to be gathered at railroad crossings," said Douglas Acker, hardware engineering manager at McCain Inc. "We are proud to introduce a simple, yet elegant solution to enable agencies to leverage that data while circumventing the age-old issues surrounding custom wiring at railroad crossings."

In advance of its release, McCain's RRIP was independently certified. To learn more about the RRIP or download a product sheet, please visit our website.
