Special developements

To optimize the functions and to protect our roof-mounted pantographs for damage we offer several specialized components.

Our open-loop-system for heavy rail vehicles ensures an uniform contact force of the pantograph on the overhead wire at all speeds. The ADD-system for light rail vehicles ensures that pantographs with damaged contact strips or collector heads are lowered automatically.

In this manner, consequential damage to the overhead wire is reduced to a minimum. Our non-icing system prevents icing of the overhead wires and serves for a secure contact.
