Product environment

Tramway and Light Rail Vehicle (LRV) operators turn to Sécheron for efficient, reliable current collectors. Our SPL pantograph is lightweight and features an extremely flat, yet stiff, design. A unique panhead suspension system ensures excellent dynamic behavior and a very reliable electrical contact between the pantograph and the overhead line, as well as a longer carbon strip lifetime. The SPL pantograph has proven its superior performance in a variety of weather and operating conditions on tramway systems across Europe.

Sécheron can deliver the SPL pantograph on its own or together with other Sécheron electrical safety, measurement, and traction control components and solutions. Our DC circuit breaker type UR, completed with our BMS contactor range are typical products that will help you to design safe and relaible traction equipment.
