High Speed Pantographs are for all types of high speed vehicles. They are designed for service speeds up to 400km/h. We are proud to hold the current world speed record of 574.8 km/h for a train on steel wheels with our pantograph achieved in 2007.
The pantographs are electronically controlled with the working extension of 2,6 m. The communication with the train is via various train networks including Ethernet, MVB or TRDP. Pantograph control unit utilizes various TCMS data such as speed, network type, pantograph position or unit configuration in order to achieve an optimal contact force at all operating conditions and speeds. Remote diagnostics and cyber security are included within the electronics scope.
Equipped with all modern systems such as automatic dropping (ADD), maximum extension limitation or carbon strip wear detection it can satisfy the most demanding requirements.
Our pantographs are in operation all around the world, e.g. in China, France, South Korea with thousands delivered since 1990.
