PantoSystem is a pantograph monitoring solution (WTMS) that automatically records sensor data and images of pantographs passing below the overhead wire. The system Is developed for infrastructure owners, and train or tram operators.
At train speeds of up to 180 km/hour, any defects are detected and reported to the rail company via the PantoSystem data processing system. Train operators are made aware of the problems giving them an opportunity to take action and prevent any torn-down overhead wiring.
Other Automatic Inspections
The PantoSystem also allows for continuous inspection of horns, uplift pressure and train speed. One main advantage is that the system also measures the thickness of the remaining carbon strip. Our customers can then predict when maintenance should be performed which promises cost savings over routine or time-based preventive maintenance. Furthermore, it works bidirectionally and independent of the direction of the trains.
