CEN - EN 16185-2

Railway applications - Braking systems of multiple unit trains - Part 2: Test methods

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 December 2014
Status: active
Page Count: 78
ICS Code (Materials and components for railway engineering): 45.040
scope:

This European Standard specifies test methods and acceptance criteria for a brake system for use in self propelling thermal and electric trains, in the following document called EMU/DMU, operating on routes of the European conventional rail system network.

This European Standard is applicable to:

- all new vehicles designs of self-propelling thermal and electric trains;

- all major overhauls of the EMU/DMU if they involve redesigning or extensive alteration to the brake system of the vehicle concerned.

This European Standard does not cover:

- locomotive hauled trains which are specified by EN 14198;

- mass transit rolling stock which is specified by EN 13452 (all parts);

- high speed trains being operated at speeds greater than 200 km/h which are specified by EN 15734-1 and tests in EN 15734-2.

The functional testing requirements set out in this European Standard assume the vehicles are fitted with brake system architecture as defined in EN 16185-1.

The braking performance obtained by applying the tests defined in this European Standard can be used to assess compliance with the required braking performance as defined in EN 16185-1.
