Railway applications – Fixed installations – Particular requirements for AC switchgear – Part 3-1: Measurement, control and protection devices for specific use in AC traction systems – Devices
|Publication Date:||1 March 2020|
|ICS Code (Railway rolling stock in general):||45.060.01|
This part of IEC 62505 is applicable to new low voltage devices for measurement, control and protection which are:
- for indoor or outdoor fixed installations in traction systems, and
- operated in conjunction with high voltage equipment with an AC line voltage and frequency as specified in IEC 60850.
NOTE 1 IEC 60850 specifies the AC traction systems:
15 kV 16,7 Hz,
12 kV 25 Hz,
12,5 kV, 20 kV also 25 kV with 50 Hz and
12,5 kV, 20 kV, 25 kV also 50 kV with 60 Hz.
This document does not provide specific requirements for AC traction systems supplied with a frequency of 25 Hz or with a nominal voltage of 12,5 kV or 50 kV. Nevertheless, requirements set out in this document can also be used as a guidance for these systems.
This document also applies to measurement, control and protective devices other than low voltage devices and not covered by a specific railway product standard as far as reasonably possible. Requirements of this document prevail.
