HIGH POWER TRACTION CURRENT COLLECTION AT HIGH SPEEDS ON THE ROME-FLORENCE DIRETTISSIMA LINE-APRIL 1978
In April 1978 the FS carried out high speed current collection tests (up to 250 km/h) under the 3000 V overhead contact system equipping the new Rome--Florence Direttissima line. 2 pantographs have been tested, namely, the FS 77 pantograph developed and constructed by the FS, and the AMDE pantograph developed and constructed by Messrs. Faiveley. It follows from the tests results that taking into account the recorded losses of contact, movements and wear, the 2 tested pantographs are suitable for satisfactory current collection up to a speed of 250 km/h under the 3000 V d.c. overhead contact system equipping the Rome--Florence Direttissima line.
