Test laboratory for radio transmission, transmission technology and GSM-R

Article: Test laboratory for radio transmission, transmission technology and GSM-R

Radio components, route radio supply systems, immunity, etc.

We offer test procedures for radio components, radio route supply systems, immunity and radio compatibility during test and examination routines conducted in the laboratory and on track.

Accredited test procedures

  • Our test laboratory in Munich is accredited by Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS) in the area of radio coverage measurements on rail vehicles in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025.
  • The accreditation encompasses the test procedures listed in the details. See also the appendix of the accreditation certificate.
  • DB Systemtechnik is QMS certified to the ISO 9001 standard.
