CTSU209 – Full package


CTSU209 is a full-package solution, capable to string up to 2 catenary and contact wires simultaneously, under different tensions (min of 5kN to not less than 25kN) with independent controls, in two working directions. The opposite working direction is available for recovery or for stringing only. A tensioning system for railway wiring operations is composed by working units mounted on 2 flats, to be installed on one existing railway wagon provided by the customer.


The tensioning system installed on bearing frames, allows a modularity of the whole winch/reels/recovery stand/mast optimizing space and creating better maintainability

  • The system is equipped with devices for recovering the old catenary along with devices to string the new catenary at the same time; this provides a more effective operation by reducing operative units
  • Full package including auxiliary devices such as lifting crane and tail wire system

The control panel provides all the control devices necessary for stringing and recovering operations

New Tesmec designed electronic controls that allow a more simple use and a careful control of all operating parameters

The circuit is designed to grant the maximum level of safety in case of failures
