Rail Grounding Systems

Axial and radial ground contacts for heavy and light rail

Grounding Systems
for Railway Applications

Durable solutions for all
installation situations and interfaces.

Only with a perfectly matched grounding system are return, safety and signal currents safely and reliably discharged. It is therefore not without reason that grounding contacts can make a decisive contribution to the economical and safe operation of your rail vehicles. These grounding systems or grounding contacts are mounted either at the end of the axle (axial) or at the gearbox (radial). At Schunk, such solutions have been established for years and are part of a large repertoire. Grounding systems must work reliably over as long a period as possible. At Schunk, you receive durable solutions for all common installation situations and interfaces. It is therefore no coincidence that leading vehicle manufacturers in the rail/traction sector rely on grounding systems from Schunk. Because with our technology, we have revolutionized the transmission of signal currents and ensured new dimensions in maintenance intervals.
