BS EN 50125-1:2014

Railway applications. Environmental conditions for equipment. Rolling stock and on-board equipment

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : April 2014



This European Standard intends to define environmental conditions within Europe. NOTE 1 It can also be applied elsewhere by agreement. The scope of this European Standard covers the definitions and ranges of the following parameters: Altitude, temperature, humidity, air movement, rain, snow and hail, ice, solar radiation, lightning, pollution for rolling stock and on-board equipment (mechanical, electromechanical, electrical, electronic). In particular, this European Standard defines interface conditions between the vehicle and its environment. The defined environmental conditions are considered as normal in service. NOTE 2 Further guidance on severe conditions can be found within prEN 16251. Rolling stock or parts of it can also be used outside the specification with reduced performance. NOTE 3 In these cases, relevant operating rules could be necessary to ensure the technical compatibility between the rolling stock and environmental conditions. Microclimates surrounding components may be defined by relevant product standards or by special requirements. Passenger effects on the equipment and equipment effects on the passengers are not considered in this European Standard. This European Standard does not apply to cranes, mining vehicles, cable cars. This European Standard also does not apply to natural disaster (e.g. earthquake).
