Catenary System Design

Overhead catenary systems power a significant percentage of the public transit networks used by millions of travelers every day. Here at MAC, we are specialists in designing, manufacturing, and supplying many of the components that make up these systems. No matter your needs, we offer a complete solution, beginning with custom component design and fabrication to meet your exact requirements.

Catenary System Engineering

Through a partnership with Kummler+Matter of Zurich, Switzerland, we are proud to offer the Adaptable Railway Cantilever System (ARCAS) for vehicle types including light rail, streetcars, trams, and trolley buses. Uniquely engineered to be compatible with many existing products, ARCAS makes it easy to implement conversions to your OCS.

Catenary System Manufacturing

Catenary systems are constructed of numerous different component parts, many of which we can engineer in-house at MAC. Thanks to our comprehensive machine shop and decades of expertise, you can relax knowing that your OCS components will have been designed, fabricated, assembled, and tested to the most exacting of standards.

Catenary System Installation

Our complete overhead catenary system service includes assistance with your installation if required. No matter the size or complexity of your system or the parts we are providing, we can work alongside your installation contractors, assist with any maintenance issues that may arise, and provide any advice that may be necessary to complete your installation.
