Carbon Collectors


TransTech designs and manufactures long life, low resistance carbon collector strips and assemblies for pantographs. Our carbon collector strips are known to be light weight, high electrical conductivity, cause minimal arcing and have the lowest friction resistance on the market.
The industry's best designs optimize the wear life of our customer's overhead catenary wire while holding up to concussion that occurs during everyday use. With design, manufacturing and testing of our carbon collectors located under one United States based roof, we can continuously improve our product designs and quickly respond to our customers' needs.
Our pantograph carbon collector strips offer integrated end horns that maintain contact in the most challenging situations. We have auto drop and impact detection systems which help maximize the wear life of our carbon collectors and pantographs.
