EN 50122-2:2010
5.2 Criteria for the protection of the tracks
Experience proves that no damage in the tracks
over a period of 25 years, if the average stray
current per unit length < 2.5 mA/m
If the conductance per length GRE 0,5 S/km
and average rail potential URE + 5 V during
the system life-time, further investigations need
not be performed.

OS 14 Electrical testing
Track to ground resistance (running rails are
connected) Minimum resistance when damp
for a 1,000 m. of track = 10 , or 10 -km
EN 50122-2 vs. OS 14
GRE 0,5 S/km -> 2 -km
Track to ground resistance > 10 -km

SCC in OS Requirements
16. Stray Current Protection
(2) Trackslabs shall provide a positive roll-off 1 to
2% and ensure that the drainage is adequate to
prevent standing water
(6) The Contractor shall monitoring of this
continuous electrical path and shall
demonstrate to the ER

Stray current corrosion control 18


OS Requirements Interpret
Slab track shall has positive 1 to 2% roll-off to
prevent standing water
SCC mat shall be measured and achieved the
required electrical resistance (< 100 m at 10A)
SCC mat shall be isolated from running rails and
other slab rebars, IR shall be measured (> 1M
500Vdc) before concreteing
