Railway applications - Fixed installations and rolling stock - Criteria to achieve technical compatibility between pantographs and overhead contact line

This document specifies requirements for the technical compatibility between pantographs and overhead contact lines, to achieve free access to the lines of the European railway network. NOTE These requirements are defined for a limited number of pantograph types conforming to the requirements in 5.3, together with the geometry and characteristics of compatible overhead contact lines.
