An electrical device put on the end of freight trains in place of a caboose is known as the end of train device (also known as an EOT, flashing rear-end device, or sense and braking unit).
Powered by an internal battery, the device sends a periodic signal to the locomotive indicating the brake pressure at the rear of the train, whether or not the last car of the train is moving, and in which direction. End of the line, also known as The End of the Line, can mean: In railway terminology, a train station at the end, or terminus, of a rail line.
GLOBAL END OF TRAIN DEVICE (EOT) MARKET SIZE AND FORECAST
The Global End of train device (EOT) market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
End of train device for ECP trains The current system is related to end-of-train devices (EOT) generally, and end-of-train devices for trains with electrically controlled pneumatic (ECP) brake systems specifically.
A combination ECP/EOT end of train device works to enable RF and/or train line wire communication of essential information from the rear to the head end or front of a train. The EOT uses radio 10 frequencies to transmit data in either single- or two-way communication with a cab display unit.
The Association of American Railroads’ (AAR) and Federal Railway Administration’s (FRA) specifications for the RF operation are well recognised in the rail industry (FRA).
The final car of a train is where the usual end of the train device is affixed. It has a battery, a 15 blinking light, an emergency valve attached to the brake pipe, a pressure sensor for the brake pipe, and an RF transceiver.
The AAR is also aware of and provides specifications for train line wire operation, also known in the industry as the Electrically Controlled Pneumatic (ECP) system.
