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.
The Variopanto® replaces two traditional pantographs and the normally required circuit breaker as well as other connecting and fastening elements. This saves more than 50% weight and installation space.
