Products Qualification

Eurailtest performs tests to qualify products and components and ensure that they comply with standards, technical and safety specifications.

Cab radio qualification

Qualify the radio installed in the cab used by drivers to communicate with the network operator.

Tests objectives :

  • Perform technical qualification of the GSM-R and/or UIC cab radio:
    – Check compliance with EIRENE, GSM-R and UIC standards
    – Perform functional qualification
    – Check the interface with the rail network: Nominal operation, lack of impact between the “Ground” and “Train” subsystems
    – Check equipment integration on trains
  • Deliver technical assessment for the use of GSM-R and/or UIC cab radio on the network

Tests facilities :

  • Laboratory equipped with a GSM-R test network and a UIC ground-to-train radio network
  • 60 km of lines equipped with UIC ground-to-train radio and GSM-R
  • Telecommunication laboratory on board the IRIS 320 train (up to 320 km/h)
  • Railway test cars

Testing norms :

EIRENE FRS (Functional Requirement Specification), SRS (System Requirement Specification),

UIC 751-1 – Railway radio equipment – Fixed and mobile units – General technical considerations

UIC 751-2- Equipement radio-électrique du Chemin de fer – Spécifications techniques

UIC 751-3- Technical regulations for international ground-to-train radio systems

 

Qualification of coatings

Ensuring passenger safety and accessibility in railway stations and on rolling stock with regard to contrasts, colours, tags and skid resistance.

Tests objectives :

  • Ensure cleanability of coatings and compatibility of cleaning products thanks to effectiveness and chemical aggressiveness tests on materials intended for rolling stock and infrastructure
  • Measure skid resistance of floor coatings
  • Measure luminance contrast in passenger areas (accessibility)
  • Maintain operator visual identity by means of colour codes

Qualification de revetements

Tests facilities :

  • Spectrocolorimeter
  • Pendulum SRT (Skid Resistance Tester)

Testing norms :

NF F31-112 et STM-C-004- Railway rolling stock – Protection in relation to graffiti – Tests procedures and methods of evaluation, behaviour of materials and removal products

EN 13036-4- Road and airfield surface characteristics – Test methods – Part 4: Method for measurement of slip/skid resistance of a surface: The pendulum test

ISO 7724-2- Paints and varnishes – Colorimetry – Part 2: Colour measurement

PRM TSI (EU Official Journal L64/134 of 7 March 2008)-

Qualification of contactless cards

Ensure proper operation of contactless cards used for ticketing – whatever their environment.

Tests objectives :

Check technical compliance of physical and chemical characteristics of contactless cards with regard to the customer’s standards or technical specifications

Qualification de cartes sans contact

Tests facilities :

  • Test bench for radio
  • Test benches for bending and torsional stress
  • Climatic test chambers and heat chambers

ISO/CEI 10373- Identification cards – Test methods

ISO/CEI 24789- Identification cards – Card service life

Qualification heat-shrink tubes and sleeves

Ensure that these components comply with standards and technical specifications.

Tests objectives :

Check conformity of mechanical, electrical and physico-chemical behaviour, and the fire resistance of heat-shrink tubes and electrical cables.

Qualification de gaines thermo-rétractables

Tests facilities :

  • Climatic test chambers for accelerated product ageing
  • Tensile testing machines for plastomers and elastomers
  • High voltage cage for rigidity tests
  • Megohmmeter

Accreditations :

ISO/IEC 17025 awarded by COFRAC (for Fire & Smoke tests)

Testing norms :
