CEN - EN 15734-2

Railway applications - Braking systems of high speed trains - Part 2: Test methods

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 November 2010
Status: active
Page Count: 68
ICS Code (Railway rolling stock in general): 45.060.01
scope:

This European Standard specifies test methods and acceptance criteria for a brake system for use in high speed trains as described in the TSI Rolling Stock, operating on routes of the trans-European high-speed rail system.

The tests defined in this document have the purpose of verifying that the braking performance and functions of the train's brake system comply at least with the respective requirements of EN 15734-1.

This European Standard is applicable to:

- new vehicles of high speed trains;

- new constructions of existing vehicle types;

- major overhauls of the above-mentioned vehicles if they involve redesigning or extensive alteration to the brake system of the vehicle concerned.

The functional testing requirements set out in this document assume the vehicles are fitted with a brake system architecture that follows the UIC air brake pipe control principles.

High Speed Rolling Stock can be fitted with alternative brake system architectures that do not employ brake pipe control. In these cases equivalent testing requirements will need to be generated to test the functional performance of brake system fitted.
