Mersen will participate in Innotrans 2012, the international trade fair for transport technology held in Berlin on 18-21 September.
Innotrans is an opportunity to introduce the brand-new solution for feeding power to catenary-free tramways at each tram stop.
Some tram designers have developed new tramway with ultracapacitors as power source. Ultracapacitor technology works as a reserve power supply built into the rolling stock.
When the tram stops the ultracapacitors must be recharged very quickly. Mersen has designed a static current collector device enabling the ultracapacitors to be recharged with the tramway at standstill. This solution by Mersen guarantees the safety of people and equipment in the tramway and around it.
Fit into a very tight space under the tram the static current collector device by Mersen recharges the ultracapacitors in an entire 20s-sequence and in a totally safe mode.
