# INNOVATION # MEASURING RULER FOR TENSIONING DEVICE

Following the request of maintenance teams, we have just developed and started marketing a new measuring ruler, to control the X dimension on the pulley tensioning devices.

This product allows to check the X dimension of the pulley device from the ground.

This ruler can be installed either on the right or on the left side of the tensioning device.

# INNOVATION # GALLAND IN POLAND

After a successful on-site trial phase at LUKOW in Poland that lasted more than a year, the Polish Railways (PKP) have recently approved our new 3 kV modular aluminum cantilever (Ref. “MCS” : Modular Cantilever System).

This all-aluminum cantilever is composed of connecting pieces matching the shape of the grooved tubes. This new design reduces the installation time and optimizes the set-up of the assembly.

This cantilever design is fully operational for high speed lines.

# INNOVATION # GAS TENSIONING DEVICE

AERO: On the way to the future.

Imagine a connected catenary providing remotely all the operating parameters of the overhead contact line ...

I dreamed that a tensioning device wouldn’t need counterweights to be lighter, to be autonomous and to send remotely updates about his functioning.

All that I have dreamed about - Galland made it!

In cooperation with the world leading manufacturer of the gas cylinders, we adapted the hydropneumatic technology to design a new tensioning device allowing to send information remotely. The data recorded includes mechanical tension, outside temperature and expansion of the wire.

This device is also able to detect a line break.

The monitoring system is composed of sensors and a data transmission card which are powered by solar panels making its functioning totally autonomous.

After a year of satisfactory tests on the Parisian tramway network in 2010, our tensioning devices are now part of the tramway network in Cuiaba (Brazil) and in Besançon (France). Other units are installed on the tramway lines in France and across the world: Grenoble, Montpellier, Dijon, South Korea and CP line bridge of the Tagus in Portugal.

The AERO is available in two versions: AERO 480 is suitable for wire lengths from 200 to 400m and AERO 1000 is convenient for wire lengths from 400 to 800m. Its mechanical load varies from 0 kN to 40 kN depending on the pressure parameters.
