New Honeycomb Feature: IN 1226 Guideline Configured

You can now choose the French IN 1226 guideline while setting up your SWARM to monitor vibrations.

What is the IN 1226 guideline?

The IN 1226 is the French guideline for the ‘Protection of railway infrastructures during work with explosives or with powerful mechanical devices’. It is an addition to the Circulaire du ‘86 guideline tailored to the French railways (SNCF).

Why and when to use IN 1226 guideline

The IN 1226 provides guidelines for construction and maintenance projects executed by the SNFC. The purpose of this guideline is to protect the railways and nearby structures from structural damage caused by construction activities. It provides parameters for monitoring the vibrations caused by demolition, piling, or construction works. The SNCF and other companies working close to railways can now choose the IN 1226 guideline from pre-configured Honeycomb settings.

How to configure the SWARM according to the IN 1226 guideline

To configure your SWARM according to the IN 1226 guideline, visit the ‘Create measuring point’ page in Honeycomb. Scroll down to the ‘Your SWARM settings’ section and click on the ‘Guideline’ field. A dropdown menu will appear, and you can choose the correct guideline (see image below).

Guideline dropdown

Following this, you can select the applicable evaluation type for your project and the IN 1226 (‘Fresh concrete’ or ‘Structure’). The SWARM settings will then automatically be changed to align with the guideline.
