International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 61373:2010
Title Railway applications - Rolling stock equipment - Shock and vibration tests
Project Number 21872
Abstract/Scope IEC 61373:2010 specifies the requirements for testing items of equipment intended for use on railway vehicles which are subsequently subjected to vibrations and shock owing to the nature of railway operational environment. To gain assurance that the quality of the equipment is acceptable, it has to withstand tests of reasonable duration that simulate the service conditions seen throughout its expected life. The main technical changes with regard to the previous edition are as follows: - change of the method to calculate the acceleration ratio; - addition of the notion of partially certified against this standard; - addition of guidance for calculating the functional RMS value from service data or the RMS value from ASD levels.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
