Quality from the start

We guarantee this, thanks to ongoing tests which form part of the development and production process.

IRIS certification  

Quality standard of the rail industry

Rail vehicles are subjected to vibrations and shock due to operational reasons and therefore require extremely high standards of reliability for the electrical connections and fault tolerance of electronic components.

Consistent product quality that corresponds to the highest requirements of the railway industry is guaranteed through ongoing tests during the development and production cycle of the products. This is also documented by the IRIS certification required by the railway industry.

All rail-specific products from Phoenix Contact fulfill the requirements of the following rail standards:

  • DIN EN 50155
  • DIN EN 50121-3
  • DIN EN 50121-4
