Railway applications - Communication, signalling and processing systems - Safety-related communication in transmission systems

This European Standard is applicable to safety-related electronic systems using for digital communication purposes a transmission system which was not necessarily designed for safety-related applications and which is – under the control of the designer and fixed during the lifetime, or – partly unknown or not fixed, however unauthorised access can be excluded, or – not under the control of the designer, and also unauthorised access has to be considered. Both safety-related equipment and non safety-related equipment can be connected to the transmission system. This standard gives the basic requirements needed to achieve safety-related communication between safety-related equipment connected to the transmission system. This European Standard is applicable to the safety requirement specification of the safety-related equipment connected to the transmission system, in order to obtain the allocated safety integrity requirements. Safety requirements are generally implemented in the safety-related equipment, designed according to EN 50129. In certain cases these requirements may be i
