Self Supporting Pantograph Carbon Strips
Morgan Advanced Materials supplies mainline railway systems with self-supporting carbon collector strips including epoxy bonding of carbon to aluminium providing
- Reduction in pan head mass
- Improved dynamic response
- Reduction in service and maintenance costs
Many high speed systems incorporate an impact detection system within the collector strip. This device enables the pantograph to be lowered immediately if an impact occurs severe enough to damage the pantograph head.
The sensitivity of these systems varies according to the design.
