NewRail, the Centre for Railway Research at Newcastle University together with the specialised design and analysis company Northern Power Transmission Research Laboratories and the leading rail services provider Serco Assurance-Railtest have pioneered a unique novel system, which allows impact between overhead line and pantograph to be measured on normal service trains. This paper discusses the background and state-of-the-art in pantograph monitoring as well as describing the main features of this innovative condition monitoring technology, including trials in live traffic conditions.
