Railway, Trams & Cranes, Current Collectors amd Pantographs

There are various carbon current collectors used for current transfer application on the pantographs of electric trams, railway, motor coaches locomotives, trolley buses and travelling cranes, but their basic material is carbon or metal-graphite. They have replaced the other materials because of their unique properties like self-lubrication corrosion resistance, slight sparking and light weight. The application of carbon current collectors is on the pantographs of locomotives, electric trains and trolley buses, while the metal-graphite and carbon collectors are used on travelling cranes and cranes.
