This European Standard specifies the general assembly characteristics which are to be applied to pantographs, to enable current collection from the overhead contact line system. It also specifies the tests the pantographs have to perform, excluding insulators. This European Standard is not applicable to pantograph dielectric tests, which are to be performed on the pantograph installed on the vehicle roof. If no other requirement is agreed between customer and supplier, insulation coordination according to EN 50124 1 may be used. This European Standard is not applicable to pantographs used on isolated metros and light rail systems. These pantographs are considered in EN 50206 2.
