The increase of rail vehicles speed, as well as the increase of their power, puts high demands on the power delivery system for traction vehicles The most critical point in the vehicle's power supply circuit is the contact between the current collector and contact wires. Ensuring a reliable co-operation of the current collector and contact line, requires technical development of the contact line and current collector construction, as well as improvement of diagnostic systems of these components. This is translated into the need to develop new measurement methods, which allow for more complete definition of the parameters of these elements of traction vehicle power supply system. Each new measurement method requires verification, performed by calibrating or comparing the results with another measurement method which has already been tested. The article presents results of experimental verification of a visual method for measuring the displacement of contact wires, with a proven method based on short range laser rangefinders and calliper as reference measurement.
