Faiveley Brecknell Willis specialise in both interface products of a conductor rail system and provide the perfect design for the correct collector/rail combination. This is an important part in the achievement of good current collection. Our strong engineering design team use the following parameters to assure optimum performance in all applications
- Minimum dynamic mass
- Minimum friction
- Frangible construction
Advantages of our designs are …
- Higher traction power efficiency
- Reduced maintenance
- Reduced arc damage at the working interface
- Maximum life of wearing components on both sides of the working interface (conductor rail and shoe)
- Reduced electrical interference to auxiliary signalling and communications equipment
Designs options can include retractable or non-retractable and may be either mechanical (rope or lever), spring/gravity, electrical, pneumatic or hydraulic.
We also provide shoegear overhaul and servicing.
