Von Roll/Adtranz Propulsion, Braking & Power

Current collector.

   Each seven car monorail has six, 37kW DC drive motors mounted above the drive wheels in the articulated section between each car. Each DC motor is controlled through the regulated conversion of the 500V AC supply. Braking is normally regenerative, with a mechanical brake for emergency or stopped conditions. The power is fed from conductor rails on both sides of the beam. Collecters are up-thrust.
