    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This European Standard specifies the functionality, position, constraints and control of a magnetic track brake system (MTB system) installed in bogies for use in emergency braking and in low adhesion conditions on Mainline Trains with speeds up to 280 km/h. It covers high suspension types of MTB only and not high/low and low suspension type of MTB.

    This document also contains test methods and acceptance criteria for an MTB system. It identifies interfaces with electrical equipment, bogie, track and other brake systems.

    On the basis of the existing international and national standards, additional requirements are defined for:

    • conditions of application for the MTB system;

    • retardation and brake forces;

    • functional and design features;

    • strength requirements;

    • type, series and vehicle implementation tests.;

    For design and calculation a “reference surface” is established.
