Automatic e-bus pantograph by ABB
At Busworld, ABB presents its new 'Panto Up'. According to ABB, this new automatic pantograph is designed to provide a flexible, efficient and fully automated charging solution for larger fleets of electric buses.
ABB states that this Panto Up is ideal for bus depots with limited space. Combined with ABB's charging system, it is an easy-to-install charging concept that enables overnight charging of up to three buses at the same time, with a power output of 50 to 150 kW per vehicle. Panto Up offers a power range of 150-600 kW for interim recharging at for example end stops. Panto Up complements ABB's e-bus charging portfolio, which includes solutions ranging from a 24 kW DC Wallbox at 1000 V and the 50 kW Terra 54 HV at 1000 V to 350 kW chargers with liquid-cooled cables. It also includes the Panto Down, which is based on OppCharge. (Hall 9, stand 940)
