one train in 20 trains
In Europe, each year 5% of the running train fleet is affected by major faults on the overhead contact line
5,000 ore 150,000 km?
Collector strips of pantograph can work 5,000-150,000 km, depends on the quality of catenary lines.
The annual worldwide maintenance cost of pantograph and catenary is more than $4Billion.
How can predictive maintenance 4.0 help in cost reduction?
We add soul to the pantographs
Simple hardware could be added to the pantograph in 2hr.
Other use cases of the patent
Our patent is a technique for health monitoring of pantograph, while it is rising or sitting down. All other devices which have similar motion could be another use case of our patent.
Catana (Catenary Analysis) is our simulation software which simulates the interaction of pantograph and catenary. This software has a unique feature to simulate the effect of tension loss or broked dropper in the interaction of pantograph and catenary. Regarding these features, our product can report all defects in the overhead catenary system.READ MORE
Pantograph Monitoring Diagnosis System
Tabriz-Jolfa electrified train had a lot of problems with the contact quality of pantograph and catenary system. We installed the prototype of the device on RC4 locomotive and collected much useful information about the pantograph and catenary.
Panti is our Chief Data Officer,
He helps us to collect data
He is a perfect junior 30 years old data collector!
