This European Standard gives guidance on the safe use of rolling stock cables specified in EN 50264, EN 50306 and EN 50382.These cables will only be used for the wiring of railway rolling stock and within the limits given in the manner described in this European Standard. All these cables are for fixed installation where there is no free movement of cable, except for stresses due to typical service.
This European Standard will be applied in conjunction with the relevant product and installation standards. Stricter requirements than those given in this standard could be necessary; see in particular EN 50343.
This European Standard is not applicable to:
- intercarriage jumpers;
- cables subject to continual flexing;
- pantograph cables;
-coaxial, data and fibre optic cables;
- wire wrap;
- cables rated at voltages greater than 3,6/6 kV;
- applications other than the cabling of railway rolling stock;
- cables requiring circuit integrity.
Legal or statutory requirements do take precedence over the guidance given in this document.
In cases where no guidance exists or where it cannot be derived from general information, it is recommended that advice be sought from the cable manufacturer.
