EN 12368:2006 (E) 4 Foreword This European Standard (EN 12368:2006) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 226 “Road equipment”, the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR. This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by October 2006, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by January 2008. This European Standard supersedes EN 12368:2000. According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.

EN 12368:2006 (E) 5 Introduction Signal heads are mainly used to transfer safety messages to the road user to achieve specific reactions. Signal heads in road traffic transfer this information optically by signal lights which have a specific meaning and which differ in their colour of light and in the design of their illuminating surface. The visibility of a signal light depends on the colour, luminous intensity, luminous intensity distribution, luminance and luminance uniformity, the surrounding luminance (background luminance), the size of the illuminating area of the signal light, the phantom light and the distance and angle between observer and signal head. Four angular distributions of luminous intensities for signal lights are specified. The user can choose between an extra wide, wide, medium and narrow beam signal to obtain a good recognition of the signal for short distances in urban areas, for long distances in rural areas. To achieve a good performance the standard provides a number of different performance levels and two different diameters for the roundels. The optical performance of signal heads in use is a function of lens soiling, mirror soiling and a decrease of luminous flux from the lamp. To maintain the performance of the signal heads during service, it is important to ensure that after lamp replacement and cleaning of lens and mirror the light output is restored to as near 100 % as possible and never lower than 80 % of the declared specified performance(s). This European Standard does not require limits for the recognition of red or green signals with reduced luminous intensities operating in a failure mode. These limits depend on the surrounding lights (on or off) and on the situation. However, for a simple rule a red signal is considered as failed if the luminous intensity in the reference axes is I ≤ 10 cd, and a green signal is considered as being in operation if the luminous intensity is I ≥ 0,05 cd. The working environment for signal heads is relatively harsh and equipment that is deemed "fit for purpose" is expected to last in this exposed, corrosive environment for a minimum of 10 years. It is essential that all materials and manufacturing processes take this into account. The supplier should detail all steps taken to comply with this clause. For devices randomly selected from series production it is important that the requirements as to minimum luminous intensity of the light emitted are in each relevant direction of the minimum values prescribed.

EN 12368:2006 (E) 8 4 Constructional requirements 4.1 General The manufacturer shall ensure the design is such that there is a facility for maintenance. Any component requiring replacement shall be designed such that this is easily accommodated and does not affect the optical performance of the signal head. The construction and choice of materials shall be such that they will provide declared performance for a reasonable economic lifetime of the product as verified by the relevant tests given in this European Standard. The complete signal head shall be made of suitable materials to meet the impact requirements according to EN 60598-1 as specified in Clause 7. The constructional integrity shall be suitable to meet the vibration test and impact test specified in Clause 7. The supplier shall detail in his documentation what maintenance shall be carried out, including cleaning methods and materials, to ensure that the optical performance shall be maintained to at least 80 % of the minimum values set out in the appropriate parts of 6.3 and 6.4. During the declared lifetime of the optical unit the colours shall remain within the colour boxes of Table 7. 4.2 Signal head There are 4 classes for the IP rating in accordance with EN 60529 of a signal head: Class I: IP34 Class II: IP44 Class III: IP54 Class IV: IP55 Where separate protection of the optical units is required they shall be protected to IP55. The signal head, including its optical components, shall be so designed that after installation, during its lifetime as defined by the supplier, including any replacement of components, the optical and mechanical requirements are guaranteed. 4.3 Mountings: poles, poles with bracket and catenaries Mountings for signal heads come in a variety of forms, which can be grouped generally: poles, poles with brackets and catenaries. Whichever form they come in they shall be able to sustain the wind loading declared by the manufacturer for the designed maximum number of signal heads. Where electrical/electronic equipment is housed in a pole it shall be protected to IP54 either by special enclosure or by the pole and/or signal head assembly, providing the necessary protection. Where required for the purpose of demonstrating passive safety, mountings shall comply with EN 12767. Surface protection and finishing shall be declared by the manufacturer and marking of mountings shall be as Clause 10.

EN 12368:2006 (E) 9 4.4 Deflection When installed and aligned directly on a pole, temporary deflection of the signal head in any horizontal direction by wind loading shall not exceed 2 % of the total length of the pole and permanent deflection shall not exceed 0,04 %. When installed and aligned on a mounting in the form of a pole with bracket or a catenary, temporary deflection of the signal head in any horizontal direction and in the vertical direction by wind loading and/or other external loading shall not exceed 4 % of the total length of the pole(s) or the mounting and permanent deflection shall not exceed 0,08 %. Wind load and deflections shall be calculated or measured in accordance with EN 12899-1:2001. 5 Environmental, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrical requirements 5.1 Environmental requirements The signal heads shall comply with one of the following classes of operational temperature ranges: Class A +60 °C to –15 °C Class B +55 °C to –25 °C Class C +40 °C to–40 °C 5.2 Electrical safety and EMC requirements The signal heads shall comply with the requirements of EN 50293. 6 Optical requirements 6.1 General The supplier shall state what visors, anti-phantom devices and protective screens are provided to meet the requirements of 6.6 and 6.9. NOTE

Different luminous intensities and luminous intensity distributions are recommended for different locations and situations. 6.2 Diameter of signal lights Roundel signal lights for road traffic conditions shall have a nominal diameter of (200 mm or 300 mm) ± 10 %. NOTE As the requirements for visibility depend on the local conditions of road lay-out and infrastructure, on traffic conditions and light conditions, it is not feasible to give strict rules for the situations where either 200 mm or 300 mm roundel signals should be used. 6.3 Luminous intensities of signal lights The performance levels for signal lights, for both 200 mm and 300 mm roundels, shall be as specified in Table 1. NOTE The standard does not give values for reduced output operation.

class 1 Imax
class 2 400 cd 1 100 cd 800 cd 2 000 cd 1 000 cd 2 500 cd

For example the performance level 2/1 is the designation of a signal light with: Imin = 200 cd; Imax = 800 cd. 6.4 Distribution of luminous intensity In Tables 2, 3, 4 and 5 four angular distributions of luminous intensity for signal lights are specified as minimum luminous intensities, expressed as percentage values dependent on the choice of the following categories: A

as a percentage of the measured values on the axis 0° horizontal and 0° vertical (the reference axis); B

as a percentage of the minimum values as defined in Table 1 required on the axis 0° horizontal and 0° vertical (the reference axis). Outside the area described in Tables 2 to 5 (as applicable) the luminous intensities shall not exceed the maximum of the relevant class of performance level. The Tables 2 to 5 contain the minimum luminous intensities in % of the values in their reference axis. Only the listed combinations of classes and performance levels shall be applied. Within the field of measurement, the light pattern shall be substantially uniform, i. e. the light intensity in each direction at each test point shall meet at least the level achieved by the next consecutive measurement.
