Introduction

The shore supply system is used within depots and sidings location for providing power to the auxiliary

electrical supply (which may include battery charging) when the primary power supply is not available, and the

train is static (0 km/h). This document defines connectors that are intermateable to provide interoperability for

rolling stock that is to run across borders and has been equipped with batteries which are be charged in

locations other than their normal depot or sidings location.

The connectors are dimensioned using standard rolling stock cables as set out in EN 50264-3-1:2008.

This document provides the requirements for compatibility of systems defined and good practice 3-phase

AC + N; 400 V, 50 Hz shore (external) supply systems. It focuses on describing the defined interfaces

regarding electrical power supply in stations, depots/workshops and sidings location into the rail vehicle.

This document provides recommended characteristics of power supply and the interface drawings for the

shore supply connectors. The interface drawings are supplied to provide intermateability and interoperability of

connectors. The fixed connector is provided with a protective cover to prevent any ingress when the connector

is not in use.

Two connectors have been specified in this document. The first is suitable for either 63 A or 125 A shore

supplies. The second is suitable for 600 A shore supplies. The 600 A connector is the existing UK standard

three-phase shore supply connector which has a long service history.

1 Scope

This document specifies requirements for the shore supply system for auxiliaries and pre-conditioning and the

related intermateable connector pairs. This standard specifies the characteristics of the connectors in order to

achieve interoperability at the rolling-stock/shore power supply interface.
This document does not apply to shore supplies to move the rolling stock.
