EMC for Rail (4 Days)

EMC for Rail, formerly Fundamentals of EMC in Rail, is a 4-day course delivers an in-depth study of EMC in the complex railway environment. It provides an understanding of its importance and the need to manage EMC from project concept to completion.

It is illegal to sell or operate electronic equipment or systems that are not compliant with the EMC Directive within the European Economic Area. In the rail environment, additional regulations are also laid down by companies such as Network Rail, Crossrail and London Underground.

Topics covered in this course help you to understand and manage the railway electromagnetic environment. The legal EMC requirements will be explained and how these are satisfied by use of standards and Technical Documentation; these requirements are related to safety and safety case requirements.

Course Structure

  • Three days with a mixture of lectures, presentations, interactive workshops and demonstrations
  • One day of practical demonstrations at our UKAS accredited Test Laboratory to illustrate the commonly required EMC tests described in the EN 61000-4-x series of standards, such as; conducted emissions, radiated emissions, conducted immunity and radiated immunity

Applying the knowledge and understanding from this course will improve the management of EMC and minimise the risk of unforeseen problems and therefore their associated time and cost over-runs.

Note: This course is also available as a non-rail alternative for companies working outside of the rail industry. For more information click here.
