EMC & Railway

EMC test for railway applications

Immunity as any admission ticket to the market

In modern railway systems a large number of electrical and electronic components come together – traction drives, air-conditioning systems, information technology as assemblies and components of the train, as well as laptops or mobile phones used by passengers. To ensure that these devices do not interfere with one another, their electromagnetic compatibility must be assured; and the legislative authorities also demand this in the standard EN 50121-3-2 for railway applications. TÜV NORD CERT offers the relevant tests and thus helps ensure a reliable market launch..

High quality documented

Manufacturers and importers of electrical and electronic subassemblies devices and installations for railway technology can use the independent TÜV NORD CERT test to document the high quality standard of their products and to fulfil their obligation to exclude as far as possible faults, unsafe states and damage to devices and installations from electromagnetic influences. This is the condition for market access: only after a successful test of the emitted interference according to the standard EN 55011 and the interference immunity according to EN 61000-4-6 may electrical and electronic components be installed in railway systems. Our modern EMC laboratory has been approved by the German accreditation body Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle (DAkkS) and recognised as a testing body by the railway authority Eisenbahnbundesamt (EBA)
