Current Collector

We Silverline Metal Engineering Pvt Ltd are Manufacturers, Suppliers, Provider, Exporters of Current Collector. A current collector, also known as a pantograph or a trolley pole, is a device used in electric railway systems to collect electric power from overhead wires (catenary) or electrified rails. It is typically mounted on the roof of an electrically powered vehicle, such as a tram, trolleybus, or electric locomotive, and serves as the primary interface between the vehicle's electrical system and the overhead power supply.

    Key components and features of a current collector include:
  • Contact shoes or wheels: The part of the current collector that makes contact with the overhead wire or rail to collect electric power. Contact shoes are typically made of a conductive material such as carbon or copper and are designed to provide a reliable electrical connection while minimizing wear on the overhead infrastructure.
  • Suspension mechanism: The mechanism that supports the current collector and allows it to maintain contact with the overhead wire or rail, even as the vehicle moves along the track. This may include springs, pivots, or other suspension components to accommodate variations in wire height or track geometry.
  • Tensioning system: In some designs, a tensioning system is used to maintain the proper tension on the contact shoes or wheels, ensuring consistent contact with the overhead wire or rail and minimizing electrical arcing or sparking.
  • Positioning mechanism: The mechanism that allows the current collector to be raised or lowered as needed, such as when passing through tunnels or under bridges with limited clearance. This may be manually operated by the vehicle operator or automated based on input from sensors or control systems.
  • Electrical connection: The electrical connection between the current collector and the vehicle's electrical system, typically consisting of wires or cables that transmit the collected electric power to the traction motors or other onboard equipment.

Current collectors play a critical role in electric railway systems by providing a reliable and efficient means of supplying power to electrically powered vehicles. They are essential components of overhead wire systems used in tramways, trolleybuses, and some types of electric trains, enabling environmentally friendly and energy-efficient transportation solutions in urban and suburban areas. We Silverline Metal Engineering Pvt Ltd are deeply engaged in offering a wide array of Current Collector to our valuable Clients located in Mumbai, in Navi Mumbai, in Thane and all over India .
