Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are extremely common in a large number of industrial control systems. This includes railroad passenger cars, where they have been used for everything from destination sign controls to HVAC controls to data aquisition and management. Northwest Rail Electric has constructed a number of systems incorporating PLCs and the flexibility allow them to be constructed to meet unique needs of each customer. The flexibility, versatility and wide variety of features make PLC based control systems a good fit for a number of needs. These are a few examples of PLC based control systems we have produced for various railroad passenger car applications.

Variations of the Northwest Rail Electric NW-25100 and NW-25200 locker packages are available with PLC based controls as an option.
