The cable catcher is one of the most important safety components because, following a derailment, what comes after the cable catcher is a void: the passenger’s life depends on the operational reliability of the cable catcher.

The problem:
Cable fall due to circular cable oscillations

“ The conventional cable catcher hooks used to date were proving to be unreliable. A design solution had to be found that would reliably prevent a cable fall following derailment”.

TU-Wien – Prof. Ing. Dr. Edwin ENGEL

The solution:
ARTI Cable catcher 3PA technology

Higher safety due to:

  • Double cable catcher hooks
  • Cable catcher tray provided with 3-piont impact
  • Optimal cable oscillation damping
