ContiTech has taken another giant leap forward with air actuators for use in pantographs. The recently developed air actuator is manufactured using an ultra-fire-resistant material and therefore also meets the requirements of EN 45545 HL3. “With this step forward in development, we are setting a new standard in the industry. We have never before seen a comparable product that meets these requirements,” says Manuel Mosich, product developer at ContiTech Industrial Application.
Installed in pantographs, ContiTech air actuators act as a central pneumatic drive element and generate a constant contact pressure between the grinding strip and overhead line. They ensure the safe transmission of electricity and are also extremely reliable and easy to maintain.
