Innovation 4 Better You

GPS Based Overhead Equipment(OHE) is to helps identify bad running locations to ensure thesafetyoftrains, as well as the riding comfort of passengers. For smooth operation of locomotive, the movementofpantograph should be unobstructed on the contact wire. The pantograph is the link between the overhead contact wire and the power circuit of theelectriclocomotive through which the required power is transmitted. It is essential to carryout propermaintenance of this equipment to improve the reliability of the pantograph, life of the OHEcontact wireand to eliminate cases of panto entanglements. 

Entanglement of pantograph with OHE normally takes place due to mechanical problems eitherintheOHE or with the pantograph. Entanglement can also take place during an accident or roughweathersuchas storm etc. Pantograph entanglement causes damages to the pantograph and overhead equipment resultsto stop the train.
