Pantograph Down for Electric Bus 

Did you know…
…ABB’s Pantograph Down with OppCharge interface can charge an electric bus in as little as three to six minutes?   

Buses are just another type of electric vehicle, but with battery packs ten times the size of a typical passenger car (or more), and as part of a larger transit system, they have unique requirements.   

Opportunity Charge or also known as OppCharge, is an open interface for the automated charging of single and double deck electric buses, using a pantograph to connect the bus to the charger. The ABB Pantograph Down system enables the quick and efficient charge of high passenger capacity electric buses. A pantograph lowers from the charging station, connects to the battery via rails on the roof of the bus and charges it with up to 600kW  

With typical charge times of three to six minutes the pantograph system can easily be integrated in existing operations, ensuring zero-emission public transit during the day without impacting the normal operation of the route.
