Last week, Laboratoire ERTMS France (#LEF) held an inaugural event with the participation of SNCF, CERTIFER and main manufacturers and presented the new on-Board ETCS laboratory and certification solution.
After several months of cooperation, the new On-Board ETCS laboratory and certification turnkey service of SNCF Rolling Stock Engineering Center (CIM) and CERTIFER is operational.
This new ERTMS laboratory is at the cutting edge of technology as it offers an innovative on-Board ETCS laboratory service thanks to the use of robotization. In fact, the new automatic test benches, which have demonstrated their effectiveness, allow a very high capacity of data processing and analysis, as it is able to process more than 250.000 variables per second. Apart from being more accurate, benches are also more flexible with a service tailored to our customer’s testing bench.
This new service aims to: - support clients on the basis of our railway expertise for calibrating the testing scenarios and results analysis - offer our strong French know-how and our best practices for testing and certification - facilitate testing and certification phases with a turnkey service, avoiding interface management between a laboratory and a certification body
