Pantograph Components and Layout

The challenge lies in reliably maintaining the contact between the carbon strip of the pantograph and the catenary. But not pushing against the catenary line too hard to prevent wear or even ripping – a task perfectly solved by pneumatics with accurate pressure control. With smart and robust components tailored to railway and customer specific requirements.

The pneumatic solution with electropneumatic valves, precision regulators, bellow actuators, and air preparation pushes the carbon strip against the catenary with the right pressure. Tailored to a wide range of pantograph applications. At all speeds and curves or at different voltages and pantograph widths in various countries – the pneumatic components are designed to meet all needs. They are not only extremely reliable and robust, they are also virtually wear-free compared to electromechanical actuation.

“With 140 years of experience in the railway industry, we cover the entire range of applications in rail.”
