Functional Safety in Railway – EN 50126, EN 50128, EN 50129, EN 50567
The railway standards EN 50126, EN 50128, EN 50567, EN 50129, EN 50159 have been developed to adress the requirement of railway functional safety. International as well as national regulations (like CSM, common safety methods in the european union or the SIRF framework for the german homologation of rolling stock) base their requirements on the above standards.
The standards above allow manufactures, operators and authority to deploy safe systems. The standards are based on a systematic approach from the overall risk analysis to the single sub-system implementation. The railway functional safety has a long history and share its approach with the IEC 61508 standard.
innotec is commited to the success of your projects and offers extensive expertise in core aspects of railway safety, including the application of domain-specific knowledge.
Examples of Sub-systems Scope of Railway Applications
Safety related sub-systems, as listed below, are typical example of applications in railway functional safety:
- Signalling systems track side and on-board (i.e. ATO – Automatic Train Operation)
- Door control systems (platform and rolling stock)
- Brake control systems
- Fire detection systems
