De Icing Solutions: NIS

Wabtec Positive Train Control PTC Products non Icing Solutions

The Non-icing System (NIS), is a specialized, non-conductive pantograph that provides a proactive solution to icing. This innovative solution uses a felt roller on the head of the pantograph to coat the contact wire with glycerin, effectively reducing the temperature at which water will freeze. This is a perfect solution for environments that are prone to ice on the contact wire.
