Schunk Smart Charging: Depot Charger SLS 301
Schunk's latest pantograph model enables vehicles of different heights to be docked in the depot in seconds. In addition, overnight loading in the depot has the advantage that there is no need for fast and large amounts of electricity to flow along the track in the shortest possible time. The devices can also be made simpler, lighter and more compact - and are therefore particularly economical.
Depot charging with automated pantographs has a whole range of advantages:
- The vehicles can park under the system with some tolerance. An automatic signal provides the connection to the pantograph. Compared to the plug-in solution, no additional personnel is required.
- The charging process runs via the system which is mounted on the roof and docked from above. The buses can park close together, so that less parking space is required.
- The Depot Charger offers an efficient overnight loading alternative. Depending on the charging cycles, the systems have a service life of ten to fifteen years, making them significantly more durable than plug-in solutions.
