Ice Scraper Carbon Strip

Ice on the contact wire is a problem for operational safety in winter, as it acts as an insulator and prevents safe power transmission. In addition, the rough ice can damage "normal" carbon contact strips, making their replacement necessary much sooner than usual.  Our ice scraper contact strip is the ideal additional solution to further improve operation in adverse winter conditions. It can be mounted on a reusable aluminum carrier, which can also be equipped with a heating element. After an extensive series of tests, we develop the contact strip according to the customer's individual requirements - for example, a scratch strip made of brass or copper can be integrated.

You benefit from these advantages:

  • Additional solution for safe power transmission in icy overhead lines
  • Extensive field tests in the development and customized production
  • Different designs possible, e.g. with scratch strip made of brass or copper
  • Gentle and without wear for the overhead line
  • Free passage for the normal contact strips of the following vehicles
