This European Standard specifies generic static tests requirements for the braking systems for all types of railways vehicles. Hereinafter all references to tests are to be read as “static” tests.
The methods of test and acceptance criteria are described in the appropriate standards (as example, for High speed trains, FprEN 15734-1 and FprEN 15734-2 apply).
Static tests conducted in normal service before the departure of the train are not considered in this standard.
This European Standard is applicable to brake systems on:
- all new vehicle designs of vehicles;
- all new constructions of existing vehicle types;
- all major overhauls of the above-mentioned vehicles if they involve redesigning or extensive alteration to the brake system of the vehicle concerned.
This European Standard does not apply to special transport systems (suspended monorail, rack and pinion lines, etc.), nor to investigative and supplementary tests.
Annex A presents the components and sub-systems to be incorporated in the brake system considered.
