The purpose of the recommended practice is to provide a baseline for contract specifications, design and manufacture of electronic and electro-mechanical Bench Test Equipment to be supplied for transit rail to eliminate unnecessary variability in specifications, allowing manufacturers to provide consistent product lines that can meet the needs of the industry, save costs and improve reliability. Users of this standard include those who specify, purchase, design, and build rail transit vehicles and their subsystems as well as BTE manufacturers.This recommended practice covers design features, construction materials, documentation, and acceptance criteria for Bench Test Equipment (BTE) for new and existing electrical and electro-mechanical equipment to be supplied for transit rail projects.
