Pantograph Monitoring System for Condition-Based Maintenance

PanVue (formerly known as Pantobot), enables automated pantograph monitoring in real-time to prevent teardown of the overhead lines and improve fleet performance. PanVue can detect accurately and reliably, any carbon wear, pantograph chipping, or any pantograph damage or misalignment. This allows railway infrastructure owners and Network Operators to optimize maintenance schedules for condition-based inspections and maximize rolling stock fleet availability.

PanVue is a fully automated three-dimensional pantograph inspection and monitoring system that allows operators to see the full picture of pantograph condition. By enabling automated inspection it can ensure greater safety for maintenance personnel while enabling streamlined workflows, accurate record-keeping, and compliance with regulatory requirements. Camlin Rail harnesses advanced Machine Learning, data analytics, and cloud technologies to help rail companies understand fleet health, reduce costs, and improve safety for personnel and passengers.

Deployed by rail operators across Europe, North America, and Asia, PanVue uses advanced 3D imaging and machine learning to assess the pantograph condition – safely, in real-time, and without the need to withdraw trains from service.

Flexible deployment options for the Pantograph system
PanVue can be flexibly deployed either in either wayside or overhead mounting frame (OMF) configuration – or a combination of the two – to suit railway operators’ requirements.
