This part of IEC 60494 specifies the general assembly characteristics which are to be applied to pantographs, to enable current collection from the overhead contact line system. It also specifies the tests the pantographs have to perform, excluding insulators.
This Standard is not applicable to pantograph dielectric tests, which are to be performed on the pantograph installed on the vehicle roof. If no other requirement is agreed between customer and supplier, insulation coordination according to IEC 62497-1 may be used.
This Standard is not applicable to pantographs used on isolated metros and light rail systems. These pantographs are considered in IEC 60494-2.
