MCI TECHNICAL DATA

Electromagnetic Compatibility

The MCI module complies with the EN 50121-3-2 standard (electromagnetic compatibility for equipment used in railroad applications). To ensure trouble-free operation of the devices, an EMC-compliant electrical installation is necessary. The system integrator is responsible for ensuring that the device is not exposed to sources of interference that cause disturbances at levels higher than those defined in EN 50121-3-2.
