PANTOCAM - Pantograph Wear and Defect Monitoring



The PANTOCAM system is specifically developed for the measurement of wear on pantographs and the detection of defects and damage on current collectors of heavy and light rail vehicles.

Using cameras with global shutter technology and lossless image compression, the PANTOCAM system provides a reliable, fast and affordable technology for the measurement of pantograph wear and pantograph defect detection.

The two main advantages of applying a PANTOCAM system in a railway network:

  • The system inspects the vehicles during an in service pass-by, thus eliminating the need to take vehicles out of service for human inspection.
  • Pantocam enables the evaluation on a daily basis of all vehicles.
