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



Reference EN 50206-2:2010
Title Railway applications - Rolling stock - Pantographs: Characteristics and tests - Part 2: Pantographs for metros and light rail vehicles
Project Number 20532
Abstract/Scope This European Standard defines the general assembly characteristics which are to be applied to pantographs, to enable current collection from the overhead line equipment. It also defines the tests the pantographs have to perform, excluding insulators. This European Standard does not apply 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 EN 50124 1 may be used. This European Standard does not apply to pantographs used on main line vehicles: these pantographs are considered in EN 50206 1. This European Standard relates to conventional suspended overhead line equipment and accessories. The systems (or part of them) which are rigidly suspended will require special consideration between the customer and the supplier.
