Railway applications - Gangway systems between vehicles - Part 1: Main applications

This European Standard defines the technical and safety requirements applicable to gangway systems used in all railway vehicles such as tram, tram trains, coaches, metro, suburban, main line and high speed trains that carry passengers. A gangway system gives comfortable passage from one vehicle to the other and consists of a flexible component which allows relative movement between vehicles.
It also defines:
-   the requirements for the safety for passengers and/or staff in the gangway while the train is running;
-   the assessment methods as well as pass/fail criteria for gangways installed on vehicles.

Bahnanwendungen - Übergangssysteme zwischen Fahrzeugen - Teil 1: Hauptanwendungen

Diese Europäische Norm legt die technischen und Sicherheitsanforderungen für Übergangssysteme fest, die in allen Eisenbahnfahrzeugen, die Fahrgäste befördern, verwendet werden, wie z. B. Straßenbahnen, Triebzüge, Reisezugwagen, Metro, Vorstadtbahnen, Hauptstrecken- und Hochgeschwindigkeitszüge. Ein Übergangssystem stellt einen komfortablen Durchgang von einem Fahrzeug zu einem anderen dar und besteht aus einer flexiblen Komponente, welche die relativen Bewegungen zwischen den Fahrzeugen zulässt.
Sie legt auch:
-   die Anforderungen an die Sicherheit für Fahrgäste und/oder Personal, während der Zug fährt;
-   die Bewertungsverfahren sowie Kriterien zur Annahme bzw. Ablehnung für die am Fahrzeug installierten Übergangssysteme;

Applications ferroviaires - Systèmes d'intercirculation entre véhicules - Partie 1: Applications générales

La présente norme définit les exigences techniques et de sécurité applicables aux systèmes d’intercirculation utilisés dans tous les véhicules ferroviaires tels que les tramways, tram-trains, voitures, métros, trains de banlieue et de grandes lignes, et les trains à grande vitesse qui transportent des passagers. Un système d’intercirculation assure un passage confortable d’un véhicule à l’autre et comprend un composant flexible qui permet un mouvement relatif entre les véhicules.
Elle définit également :
-   Les exigences pour la sécurité des passagers et/ou  du personnel sur l'intercirculation lorsque le train circule ;
-   les méthodes d’évaluation ainsi que les critères de réussite/échec pour les intercirculations installées sur les véhicules.

Železnice - Prehodni sistemi med vozili - 1. del: Glavne vrste uporabe

Ta standard določa tehnične in varnostne zahteve prehodnih sistemov, ki se uporabljajo za vsa železniška vozila, kot so tramvaji, tramvajski vlaki, vagoni, metroji, vlaki na primestnih in glavnih progah ter vlaki za visoke hitrosti, ki prevažajo potnike. Prehodni sistem omogoča udoben prehod iz enega vozila v drugega in vključuje upogljiv sestavni del, ki dopušča relativno gibanje med vozili. Standard določa tudi: – varno uporabo prehodnega sistema za potnike in/ali osebje med obratovanjem vlaka; – metode za oceno in merila za sprejem/zavrnitev za prehodne sisteme, nameščene na vozila.
