Our competences:

Reliable and maintenance-free infrastructure provides the basis for trouble-free operation of electric railways for local and long-distance travel. Rail traffic is steadily increasing around the world. This places new demands on railway lines – both on existing routes as they expand and on newly built lines. PFISTERER is a full-service provider offering innovative and sustainable solutions for electric railways and tramways. We maintain a consistent focus on the reliability of the overhead contact system and high track availability. We offer comprehensive solutions for:

Overhead Line Construction: Better capacity utilisation of railway lines, denser intervals between trains and higher speeds mean that stresses and strains on overhead lines are constantly increasing. PFISTERER offers overhead contact solutions and an extensive range of cantilevers, suspension clamps and connectors for all applications. Our innovative spring-tensioning system TENSOREX C+ is a forward-looking alternative that offers many advantages over conventional wheel tensioners. Devices for measuring the height of overhead contact lines round out the offering.

Tensioning: Modern railway tracks place extremely high demands on their tensioning systems. High-speed lines with numerous tunnels need tensioning devices that can be easily integrated into the tunnel geometry. There is a growing trend for urban transport systems to be aesthetically designed, requiring tensioning devices that blend inconspicuously into their environment. TENSOREX C+ by PFISTERER is an innovative solution for both types of application, which is approved for many which is approved by many rail and tram companies.

Insulation Technology: Insulators are a key component in all energy networks – including on electrical overhead lines and in distribution stations. Mainly porcelain or composite insulators are used in railway engineering. There is no functional difference between the two types of material – but porcelain or silicone may be advantageous depending on the application. PFISTERER together with our daughter company LAPP Insulators can look back on decades-long experience in the manufacture of insulators. The PFISTERER Group operates its own laboratories for high-voltage testing and material investigations and has the widest range of approved isolators at Deutsche Bahn.

Power Supply: Connecting and joining metallic conductors has been a PFISTERER core competence for almost 100 years. We are constantly working on solutions to make installation easier and safer, and energy networks more efficient. At PFISTERER we have an extensive portfolio for all applications and for connecting all common conductors – whether between stations or in substations.

Safety Equipment: Safety equipment is one of the most sensitive aspects of railway electrification. Reliable products, ease of use and operational safety are therefore essential. PFISTERER offers a complete range of voltage detectors, earthing and short-circuiting devices, as well as earthing and operating poles, which can be exactly matched to any requirements thanks to our modular system design. Our safety equipment represents the highest international standards of quality, safety and reliability.
