Railway EMC Testing

EN 50121 Railway EMC Test

The information we will describe in this article will help you to understand the implementation of the EN 50121-X Railway standards, which can be carried out by the expert teams of Ege Test Center.

EN 50121-X series

This standard series is one of the main tools that can be used to address the Essential Requirements of the EMC Directive (2014/30 / EU) and the EN 50121-x tests can be of great importance to eliminate the hazards that may occur in the railway.

EN 50121-X Applications

Chapter 1:  Defines the EMC Method to be Applied by defining the railway environment and looking at the relationship between the inventory and the infrastructure; It may require EN 50238.

Chapter 2: The  interface between the railway system and the outside world. We define the results and emission limits and appropriate measurement techniques in this interface.

Section 3: Is  divided into sub-sections.

  • It covers 3-1 trains, emission limits and measurement techniques are defined at this stage
  • 3-2 covers train-driven devices. Emission limits, immunity levels and measurement methods are indicated. This standard also defines immunity criteria that are generally more stringent than generic standards.

Section 4:  Includes signal and telecommunications equipment. Emission limits, immunity levels and measurement methods are indicated. Chapter 4 is also the part where other devices that do not fit the other parts are tested.

Part 5:  Includes constant power supply apparatus and installations, eg traction sub-stations.
