Laird Technologies to Attend InnoTrans 2012

Company to Demonstrate New Feature of Rail Remote Control System

St. Louis, Missouri, USA - Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced it will be attending InnoTrans 2012. The event will be held at the Messe Berlin GmbH, in Berlin, Germany, September 18-21, 2012. Laird Technologies will exhibit in hall 6.2 at booth 143.

Laird Technologies will be showcasing the TH-EC/LOII remote control system for locomotives. As the first remote control in the world specifically designed in compliance with the European safety standards for locomotives EN 50239, the TH-EC/LOII offers new possibilities for streamlining the railway industry. A new feature of the system allows the operator to control electric switch points while also controlling the locomotive with the same remote control system. This helps to reduce the risk of injuries and saves time during the shunting process. Laird Technologies will hold a live demonstration of the new feature at their booth during the show.

"We are excited to exhibit this new feature at InnoTrans 2012," said Volker Böckenholt, Sales Director for Railway Systems at Laird Technologies. "The show has grown exponentially in recent years and offers Laird Technologies a great opportunity to showcase our industry-leading products to a wide audience in the rail industry."

InnoTrans 2012 is the leading international trade fair for rail transport technology. With over 100,000 visitors and 2,000 exhibitors at the previous event, InnoTrans 2012 looks to increase their impact on the rail industry. Visitors and exhibitors include public and private transport enterprises and operators, manufactures and suppliers of transport technology, construction companies and public administrators and government officials. The four day event includes speakers, round table discussions and informational sessions along with the exhibition.
