Supply and control units

Optimal pressure for efficient operation

For reliable heavy-duty operation: supply and control units for pneumatically operated pantographs

The right control unit for every area of application

The supply and control units for pneumatically operated pantographs guarantee the reliable operation of commuter and regional trains, locomotives, and high-speed trains. They work with a supply pressure of up to 12 bar and are designed for operating voltages of 24 V DC and 110 V DC. Precision air pressure control and a modular design make the supply and control units the first choice for reliable pantograph operation when it comes to options like manually activated emergency valves, pressure sensors, and safety valves.

Development capabilities and test facility

Siemens Mobility performs the entire development process – including design, construction, calculation, simulation, prototype building, and production – in Austria. The specially developed, hardware-in-the-loop test facility is unique in the world and makes it possible to emulate the interaction between the pantograph and simulated overhead contact line in real time. Dynamic tests of the overall system in the laboratory form a valuable link between simulations and test runs.
