Railway applications - Rolling stock - Electrical connectors - Requirements and test methods

This International Standard retains IEC 61984:2008 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 International Standard does not cover: - connectors with breaking capacity (CBCs) as defined in IEC 61984:2008, 3.2, because on board rolling stock connectors are not intended to be operated (i.e. mated and unmated) under load or when live, either by means of procedures or by the presence of interlocks, as required by IEC 61991; - non-rewirable connectors as defined in IEC 61984:2008, 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 International Standard are therefore covered by the agreed choice of suitable mechanical and environmental characteristics as defined by Annex B, and suggested by Annex C. This International Standard identifies the application levels for electrical connectors based on a) the severity of the service conditions in different rolling stock technologies, b) the intended use of the rolling stock, c) the location of the connector in the rolling stock system. This International Standard is not applicable to internal connections of electronic devices such as connectors for printed boards and rack-and-panel connectors.

Applications ferroviaires - Matériel roulant - Connecteurs électriques - Exigences et méthodes d'essai

L'IEC 62847:2016 reconnaît les exigences de l'IEC 61984:2008 comme étant les exigences de performances minimales des connecteurs électriques sur matériel roulant ferroviaire et identifie d'autres termes, méthodes d'essais et exigences de performances pour les connecteurs unipolaires et multipolaires avec des tensions assignées jusqu'à 1 000 V, des courants assignés jusqu'à 125 A par contact et des fréquences inférieures à 3 MHz, utilisés pour des applications intérieures et extérieures sur matériel roulant ferroviaire.

Železniške naprave - Vozna sredstva - Električni konektorji - Zahteve in preskusne metode

Ta mednarodni standard kot najnižjo zahtevo glede zmogljivosti električnih konektorjev železniških voznih sredstev ohranja standard IEC 61984:2008.
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 voznih sredstvih.
Ta mednarodni standard ne zajema:
– konektorjev z zmogljivostjo prekinitve (CBC), opredeljenih v točki 3.2 standarda IEC 61984:2008, ker konektorji na voznih sredstvih niso namenjeni za delovanje (tj. v spojenem in ločenem stanju) pod obremenitvijo ali napetostjo, bodisi s postopki ali prisotnostjo zapornih sistemov, kot to zahteva standard IEC 61991;
– konektorjev, ki jih ni mogoče znova povezati, kot je opredeljeno v točki 3.5 standarda IEC 61984:2008;
– samodejnih spojnikov zaradi njihove dodatne mehanske kompleksnosti ter podrobnejših zahtev in preskusov;
– povezovalnih elementov med vozili, tj. sklopov konektorjev in kablov, katerih lastnosti so odvisne od lastnosti obeh elementov. Konektorji za uporabo med vozili so v mejah, določenih v področju uporabe tega mednarodnega standarda, zajeti z dogovorjeno izbiro ustreznih mehanskih in okoljskih lastnosti, kot je opredeljeno v dodatku B in predlagano v dodatku C.
Ta mednarodni standard opredeljuje ravni uporabe za električne konektorje na podlagi
a) resnosti pogojev obratovanja pri različnih tehnologijah železniških voznih sredstev,
b) predvidene uporabe železniških voznih sredstev,
c) namestitve konektorja v sistemu železniških voznih sredstev.
Ta mednarodni standard se ne uporablja za notranje povezave elektronskih naprav, kot so konektorji za tiskana vezja ter konektorji za omare in panele.
