Rail Vehicle & Component




MEA is an expert in performing motor testing according to the different IEC standards.

We can implement with our test system the IEC60349-2.


The MEA Motor Line system allows the user to build a test plan according to the following tests:

• Visual Test.
• Phases Resistance.
• Temperature measurement of PT 100.
• Short circuit test.
• No-load Test (Free run).
• Bearing test with three axial accelerometers.
• Speed sensor functionality.
• Vibration velocity.
• Insulation resistance.
• Dielectric Withstand.














Endurance Test Rig for Geared Motors

Tests objectives:

  • Check the behavior of a geared motor unit over time.
  • Assess the various components of the geared motor.
  • Identify and analyze the failures of the geared motor (electrical and mechanical).
  • Conduct investigations.
  • Measure vibration, torque, speed, and temperature.
  • Conduct physical and chemical analyses of grease and lubricants.


Test rig operation

  • Operating cycles adapted to requirements: Thermal loads, trip simulation.
  • Operates round-the-clock, 7 days a week
  • Custom testing procedures according to customer specifications.
  • Real-time monitoring and measuring system.
  • Control systems capable of powering synchronous and asynchronous geared motors





Static brake tests
Contributing to the type approval process of a braking system by means of static tests

Tests objectives:

  • Validate brake control components (driver’s brake valve, self-adjusting brake valve, etc.).
  • Validate and measure the application forces generated by the braking system.
  • Measuring the holding capacity of the brake when the train is at standstill by establishing the friction coefficient or the adhesion (wheel/brake block or wheel/ rail).


Tests facilities:
Measuring chain equipped with sensors for automatic compliance checks (measurements + functional analysis + validation)

Testing norms:

  • UIC 540 – Air brakes for freight and passenger trains.
  • UIC 541 – 03/04/05 – Regulations concerning manufacture of the different brake parts.
  • TSI – Rolling Stock – Conventional Rail, High Speeds, Freight wagons.


Why choosing MEA testing :

•Ensure the safety of your rolling stock and components in compliance with relevant global standards and regulations.
•Save time and money in avoiding costly rework and project delays.
•Increase your operational efficiencies to generate real business value.
•Provide your various stakeholders with confidence that your product has been tested to the highest standards.
