Thanks to the success of the Phase 1 proposal, Contact s.r.l. had the opportunity to prove the technical and economic feasibility of the Diagnostic Pantograph for low speed trains. During the SME Phase 1 we have completed the “Type” tests of the pantograph JRC15 for low speed train, which has led Contact to get the TSI certification, according the European Technical Specification of Interoperability TSI-2014, in September 2017. Furthermore, in November 2017 we completed the “Type” tests of the Pantograph Optical Unit with optical accelerometer, according the European standard EN50155.
In parallel to the technical development of the project, the feasibility study has also proved that the railway market requires innovative products to improve the performance of the pantographs and reduce their Life Cycle Costs.
The outcomes of the feasibility study and the market requests has strongly convinced Contact srl to continue with the development of diagnostic system for pantographs and overhead contact line.
Starting from the activities carried on so far, these innovative features will be developed and embedded into the low-speed train DIAG-PANTOGRAPH (currently developed at TRL 7) to reach TRL9:
