Standard tailored

Rail Power Systems supplies standard contact line systems as well as tailor-made systems. Its applications range from city and local traffic to long-distance and high-speed traffic. Depending on the traffic system, local conditions and the requirements of customers, Rail Power Systems builds the contact line systems as an overhead-line or current-rail system. The customer is provided with tested, seasoned and reliable systems requiring little maintenance due to their standardised components. They comply with the EU standards for railway applications.

Catenary Lifts

  • Field of application: level crossing, lift bridges, container terminals, depots
    Without influence on the catenary’s geometry the catenary is lifted upwards to either allow loading or unloading or passing of oversized vehicles.

Underground transit

  • Up to 80 kph, third rail with current draw from below, made of aluminium with stainless steel surface, current rail carrier made of steel or insulating glass-fibre-reinforced plastic

Overhead conductor rail

  • up to 25 kph, for maintenance workshops, profile made of aluminium with grooved copper contact wire
  • up to 140 kph, for tunnel equipment suspended on hinged or drop supports
