Overhead Catenary System (OCS) inspection systemPantograph Monitoring System

For line doing mutual direct operation between the different railway companies, it detects any pantograph abnormalities. By the camera installed near the structure (like beam, etc.) near the operating boundary of each railway company, the photograph of pantagraph on the crossing train is taken each time automatically. The photograph is immediately sent to a maintenance office PC through the mobile phone network, and the monitoring operator checks for abnormalities in pan head, contact slip and horn of the pantograph by viewing the received photograph.
