    Electro-Magnetic capability steering group

    Scope

    The scope of the Electro-Magnetic Compatibility subgroup (EMC SG) is defined in its remit. Its work specifically relates to balancing the design of new rolling stock and the specification of target or preferred train control and communication systems. The EMC SG considers the strategy for how new train control and command systems can be introduced with existing rolling stock; and the operation of new vehicles with existing train control and communication systems.

    Message from the chair

    EMC SG provides an informed GB view of European developments in the area of EMC standards to ensure that proposed requirements for standards are acceptable to infrastructure managers and rolling stock suppliers. We are focusing on two key areas: developing guidance for compatibility with telecoms circuits, and assessing the impact of Electrical Resonance occurrences on compatibility.
