Locotrol IV & LEB (January 2003) 1-1 Locotrol IV & LEB
1-2 Benefits of Locotrol ãCharging time is reduced ãBrake applications are faster ãAir brake releases are faster ãPower efficiency and overall tonnage capabilities are enhanced ãMore rapid acceleration and deceleration are possible ãStopping distance is reduced ãImproved control of slack action ãReduction of draft forces on the head end of the train
Locotrol IV & LEB1-3 Benefits of Locotrol ãLow speed train handling is improved by ability to make faster brake applications and running releases ãReal-time data logging which reports malfunctions

Locotrol IV & LEB1-19 MAC90 Setup On lead & remote MAC90 units ensure the Distributed Power & DPU circuit breakers are “ON.” Engine Control Switch is in RUN position.
Locotrol IV & LEB1-20 AC 4400 Setup AC 4400 Locomotives: Distributed Power Breaker: This is the main power breaker for the Locotrol equipment. It must be “on” for Locotrol operation. Engine Control Switch: Place the engine control switch to the RUN position on both the lead and remote locomotives.
Locotrol IV & LEB1-21 Locomotive Electronic Braking Current locomotives with Locomotive Electronic Braking (LEB) equipment are AC4400s:CP 8500 – 8580 & CP 8600-8655 SD90MACs:CEFX 100 –139 & CP 9300-9303 Note: Not all AC4400’s & CEFX locomotives are commissioned for LEB service.
