Railway applications - Track - Track geometry quality - Part 3: Measuring systems - Track construction and maintenance machines
This European Standard specifies the minimum requirements that shall be met by measuring systems fitted on track construction and maintenance machines to give an evaluation of track geometry quality when measuring one or more of the parameters described in EN 13848-1. It does not seek to prescribe which parameters are to be measured, since these depend upon the measuring capabilities of the machine and the purpose for which the machine or its measuring system is used.
It also sets out the acceptable differences from EN 13848-1 when using track construction and maintenance machines to measure track geometry. It applies to track geometry measuring systems which are fitted to track construction and maintenance machines from one year after the date of implementation of this standard.
