This European Standard applies to both distributor-isolating devices mounted separate from the distributor valve and distributor-isolating devices integral with the distributor valve.
This European Standard specifies the requirements for the design, testing and quality assurance of distributor valves and distributor-isolating devices.
For interoperable freight wagons, these devices which are operated by compressed air according to EN 14198 are assessed according to the respective technical specification of interoperability.
