SBB Cargo outfitted at least one Re 420 with automatic couplers and has been testing it in operation for over a year.

I think that the tests were conducted with specific car types and loads.
The coupling looks like a fold down Scharfenberg type coupler.

The locomotive can still use it's normal coupler if required as long as the automatic one is folded up.
