Automatic Pantographs

Detection and Fault Analysis

Detect, analyse to prevent and act!

Automated real-time analysis allows the prevention of catenary tearing incidents, together with the predictive maintenance of pantographs.

Operating principle: (Train speeds can reach up to 160 km/h.)

  • Automatic detection and identification of the train as soon as it passes under the sensor.
  • Detection and Analysis of Pantograph’ integrity: Presence of horns, friction strips: chips, cracks and furrows, homogeneity and thickness of the carbon strip as well as pantograph’s misalignment.
  • As soon as a defect is detected, an alarm is generated and directly sent via a 4G communication, or any other low cost communication media.
  • Location and counting of the pantographs (folded or unfolded) is an option.

Intelligent device: Processing, analysis and alert sending in real time.

Plug and play: Simple installation and commissioning. Alert sent only when defects are seen.

Optimized and controlled maintenance costs: Very attractive sensor prices allowing the multiplication of control points on the rail network.

Connected alarm system: Alert sent via 4G communication. Device adaptable to the tramway market.
