Railway applications - Rolling stock - Electrical connectors, requirements and test methods

This European Standard retains EN 61984:2001 as the minimum performance requirements for railway rolling stock electrical connectors. It identifies additional terms, test methods and performance requirements for single-pole and multipole connectors with rated voltages up to 1 000 V, rated currents up to 125 A per contact and frequencies below 3 MHz used for indoor and outdoor applications in railway rolling stock. This European Standard identifies the application levels for electrical connectors based on - the severity of the service conditions in different rolling stock technologies, - the intended use of the rolling stock, - the location of the connector in the rolling stock system. This European Standard is not applicable to internal connections of electronic devices such as connectors for printed boards and rack-and-panel connectors.

Železniške naprave - Železniška vozila - Konektorji, zahteve in preskusne metode

Ta evropski standard kot najnižjo zahtevo glede zmogljivosti konektorjev železniških vozil ohranja standard EN 61984 2001.
Opredeljuje dodatne pogoje, preskusne metode in zahteve glede zmogljivosti za enopolne in večpolne konektorje z nazivnimi napetostmi do 1000 V, nazivnimi toki do 125 A na stik in frekvencami pod 3 MHz, ki se uporabljajo za notranje in zunanje naprave pri železniških vozilih.
Ta evropski standard opredeljuje ravni naprav za konektorje na podlagi
– resnosti pogojev obratovanja pri različnih tehnologijah železniških vozil,
– predvidene uporabe železniških vozil,
– namestitve konektorja v sistemu železniških vozil.
Ta evropski standard se ne uporablja za notranje povezave elektronskih naprav, kot so konektorji za tiskana vezja ter konektorji za stojala in plošče.

Introduction

This European Standard provides performance requirements and tests for low-voltage electrical connectors

deemed to be installed on board railway rolling stock, either indoors or outdoors. Safety requirements and

tests for electrical connectors are already covered in general by EN 61984:2001. The additional

requirements and testing of specific characteristics demanded by rolling stock applications are set out in this

European Standard. One goal of this European Standard is to avoid retesting of electrical connectors already

in compliance with EN 61984:2001 for those characteristics that have been assessed suitable also for use on

board rolling stock.

Among the additional requirements for use on board rolling stock, those that can be verified by

documentation of tests on the raw materials are distinguished from those to be assessed by tests on the

component.

Due to the wide spectrum of existing and future specific rolling stock applications of electrical connectors,

this European Standard does not select any particular geometric configuration of connectors, nor establish

any particular values for electrical ratings such as voltage and current, or for any other characteristic.

All such details should be selected and agreed between the parties involved (e.g. manufacturer and user)

depending on the electrical, mechanical and environmental conditions expected in the intended use.

Annexes A and C of this European Standard provide guidance.

Upon agreement between the parties involved, this European Standard may be used in conjunction with

existing connector detail specifications for interchangeability purposes.

Other standards may be developed in future under the umbrella format of this European Standard, for

particular connector designs for applications on board rolling stock, to fix dimensions for interchangeability

and to set the additional requirements for specific applications that, due to complexity and variety, are left

here to agreement between parties involved.
This European Standard does not cover:

- connectors with breaking capacity (CBCs) as defined in EN 61984:2001, 3.2, because on board rolling

stock connectors are not deemed to be operated (i.e. connected or disconnected) under load or when

live, either by means of procedures or by the presence of interlocks, as required by EN 50153,

NOTE For the purpose of this European Standard connectors on board rolling stock are therefore considered as being always

without breaking capacity, therefore where needed for safety reasons, adequate procedures or interlocks (i.e. locking devices that

cannot be opened without the aid of a special tool) shall be provided in the end application.

- non-rewirable connectors as defined in EN 61984:2001, 3.5,

- automatic couplers, due to their additional mechanical complexity and the need for more specific

requirements and testing,

- inter-vehicle jumpers, as they are connector and cable assemblies whose characteristics depend on

those of both elements. Inter-vehicle connectors within the limits set in the scope of this European

Standard are therefore covered by the agreed choice of suitable mechanical and environmental

characteristics as defined by Annex B, and suggested by Annex C.

1 Scope

This European Standard retains EN 61984:2001 as the minimum performance requirements for railway

rolling stock electrical connectors.

It identifies additional terms, test methods and performance requirements for single-pole and multipole

connectors with rated voltages up to 1 000 V, rated currents up to 125 A per contact and frequencies below

3 MHz used for indoor and outdoor applications in railway rolling stock.

This European Standard identifies the application levels for electrical connectors based on

- the severity of the service conditions in different rolling stock technologies,

- the intended use of the rolling stock,
- the location of the connector in the rolling stock system.

This European Standard is not applicable to internal connections of electronic devices such as connectors

for printed boards and rack-and-panel connectors.
