Trolleybus Current Collectors

Trolleybus / E-bus collectors are designed for green transportation in cities. They are compatible with all network systems over the world. Collectors can be used for conventional power collection from the traction network or charging of batteries in motion. Let´s participate on green and sustainable city transportation together.

Trolleybus / e-bus current collectors are made up of a couple of trolleybus collectors, arresting hooks and winches. Arresting hooks are mounted on rear part of vehicle roof and serve for locking the collector in their lowered position. Winches are mounted on rear wall of vehicle and serve for manual lowering of the collector.

Semi-Automatic: Trolleybus Current Collectors

The semi-automatic collector system finds its application mostly in trolleybuses equipped with auxiliary power for independent ride without catenary (use of batteries or diesel).

Trolleybus collectors are driven by electro-pneumatic control box supplemented by pneumatic lowering bellows and pneumatic centering bellows.

Manual Trolleybus Current Collectors

Economic version of trolleybus collectors with manual lowering of poles with the help of ropes. Manual version of the collectors does not include the electro-pneumatic control box.
