Spring-type balancer: Model NS

Spring-type automatic tension balancers: Model NS

Model NS balancers are smaller and lighter balancers that are made by using a high-stress spring material to reduce spring diameters. Their two-tier springs make it possible for them to have long-stroke responses. Accordingly, Model NS balancers can cope with the tension and strokes that occur in almost all types of overhead contact line systems.

Spring-type balancer: Model NSS

Spring-type automatic tension balancers: Model NSS

Model NSS balancers are spring-type tension balancers that are used for the Tohoku, Joetsu, and Kyushu Shinkansen. Their three-tier springs make it possible for them to cope with the expansion and contraction of overhead contact lines at a tensile change rate of less than ±9% (for an overhead contact line length of 800 m). Use of a high-tensile steel material as spring steel enabled us to reduce the balancer size to its limit. Model NSS balancers are classified into two types. One type is for a tension of 39.2 kN (4000 kgf) as seen in the photograph, and the other type is for a tension of 24.5 kN (2500 kgf).

Pulley-type balancer

Pulley-type automatic tension balancers for narrow-gauge lines

Pulley-type balancers exhibit a tensile change rate of approximately 5%, which is lower than that of spring-type balancers. They are capable of handling large expansions and contractions (for an overhead contact line length of 800 m). In addition to the new No. 2 balancer seen in the photograph (29.4 kN (3000 kgf) or lower), the No. 3 balancer (53.7 kN (5500 kgf) or lower) and others are also available.

Main specifications of the product shown in the photograph
Model Model II (new)
Standard tension 29.4kN (3000kgf)
Tension change rate Up to ±5%
Stroke 800mm
