Reference EN 50152-2:2007
Title Railway applications - Fixed installations - Particular requirements for a.c. switchgear - Part 2: Single-phase disconnectors, earthing switches and switches with Un above 1 kV
Project Number 16848
Abstract/Scope This EN 50152 2 is applicable to single-phase a.c. one-pole disconnectors, earthing switches and switches (switch-disconnectors and general purpose switches) designed for indoor or outdoor fixed installations for operation at frequencies of 16,7 Hz and 50 Hz on traction systems having an UNm above 1 kV up to 52 kV. This EN 50152 2 is also applicable to two-pole disconnectors, earthing switches and switches (switch-disconnectors and general purpose switches) connected in the following manner either: a) one pole supplying the connection to the contact line of the track, the other supplying the connection to the feeder cable which runs alongside the same track and is used to boost the track voltage at regular intervals in combination with autotransformers; or b) the two poles of the disconnector, earthing switch or switch (switch-disconnector or general purpose switch) are connected in series to provide secure isolation (i.e. two breaks in series).

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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