Anti Pinch Test and Testing Powered Door Steps according to EN 14752 and VDV 111/ VDV 157

Safety ensured by Pinch Force Measurement

”Schrift VDV 111/ VDV 157“ of ”Verband Deutscher Verkehrsunternehmen (VDV)“ describes the anti pinch requirements for powered train doors and door steps.

The test specimens from Drive Test enable to test the protection devices according to the recommended test procedure of ”Schrift VDV 111/ VDV 157“.

Test specimens 1, 2 and 3 serve to verify that trapped objects between the vehicle doors are recognized and to test if anti pinch actions are effective. The maximum extraction force needed for clamped test specimen can be measured with the help of the spring scale. For this the rotatable and swivelling hook of the spring scale is inserted into the aperture of the test device. When closing the doors, the test specimen is clamped. By pulling the handle of the spring scale, the maximum extraction force can be determined.

Test specimen 4 tests the safety of stepping on powered door steps.

Test specimen 5 tests the safety of vehicle doors.

Due to practical robustness, the test specimens deliver exact measurements, even after years of service in an industrial environment. The handling is easy and does not require any additional accessories.

The detailed test procedure is described in standard ”DIN EN 14752“ as well as in ”Schrift VDV 111/ VDV 157“.
