R&D Catenary Bench


 R&D Catenary Bench is especially designed to characterize and measure rigid catenary performance, with preloaded force or acceleration profiles. It is unique in Europe. It has a 100% flexible installation, allowing multiple geometry combinations and catenary configurations, used in railway exploitations.

Thanks to this Catenary Bench, the knowledge and understanding about pantograph and catenary interaction and behavior is been characterized,getting deeper knowledge on aspects such as its dynamic interaction on curves, track canting, and the pantograph tilt.
