An account of theoretical investigations to define the optimum pantograph with primary and secondary suspension for speeds up to 250 km/h, and tests of a prototype to measure the quality of the contact with the catenary, by recording the number and duration of losses of contact. Characteristics for the optimum prototype were selected, and a prototype servo pantograph was tested.
