Testing & Certification

RETB is fully tested and certified for use on UK rail

The RETB Next Generation signalling system is in use 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in some of the harshest conditions on the UK rail network.

All RETB equipment has passed rigourous testing procedures prior to deployment and has been proven to be highly reliable in service.

As well as EMC testing, the equipment underwent accelerated life environmental testing (left) where it was tested for vibration and shock resilience along with exposure to temperatures beyond it’s operational requirements.

RETB equipment is certified by Network Rail for use on the UK rail network, among the most stringent safety certification requirements in the world.

Comms Design can advise on the requirements for your particular rail network. We also have experience working with radio spectrum certification agencies to support the RETB radio network installation and commissioning.
