Safety of machinery – Integral lighting of machines

This standard specifies the parameters of integral lighting systems designed to provide illumination in and/or at both stationary and mobile machines to enable the safe use of the machine and the efficient performance of the visual task within and/or at the machine to be carried out. This standard does not specify lighting systems mounted on the machine to specifically illuminate visual tasks outside the machine. The function and requirements of these systems are specified in the European Standard dealing with the lighting of work places. This European Standard is under preparation. This standard does not establish additional requirements for the operation of lighting systems – in severe conditions (extreme environmental conditions such as freezer applications, high temperatures, etc.); – subject to special rules (e.g. explosive atmospheres); – where the transmittance is reduced by environmental conditions, such as smoke, splashing, etc.

Safety of machinery – Pressure sensitive protective devices – Part 2: General principles for the design and testing of pressure sensitive edges and pressure sensitive bars

This standard contains requirements for pressure sensitive edges and pressure sensitive bars for use as
safety devices and not as actuating devices for normal operational. The standard applies to pressure sensitive edges and pressure sensitive bars used to detect persons or parts of persons who may be exposed to danger such as hazardous moving parts. EN 1760-2:2001+A1:2009 (E) 8 The purpose of this standard relates primarily to safety and reliability rather than suitability. For the relationship between safety and reliability, see annex D of EN 954-1:1996. This standard specifies requirements for pressure sensitive edges and pressure sensitive bars with and without an external reset facility. This standard is restricted to the functioning of pressure sensitive edges and pressure sensitive bars and does not specify the requirements for their application. However, clause 6 contains requirements for information for use which has to be provided by the manufacturer. A selection procedure is given in annex C. The design notes in annex D give additional guidance regarding the design of pressure sensitive edges and pressure sensitive bars which will give safe and reliable service. The notes in annex E provide general guidance regarding application, while annex G provides guidance on the application of sensors, especially for air-pulse systems. This standard does not specify the dimensions of the pressure sensitive edges or bars in relation to a particular application. The standard does not apply to stopping devices according to EN 60204-1 used only for normal operational, including emergency stopping, of machinery. Additional requirements may be necessary where pressure sensitive edges and pressure sensitive bars are used in locations accessible to elderly or disabled people or children.

Safety of machinery – Pressure sensitive protective devices – Part 1: General principles for the design and testing of pressure sensitive mats and pressure sensitive floors

This Standard specifies requirements for pressure sensitive mats and floors normally actuated by the feet for use as safety devices to protect persons from dangerous machinery. The minimum safety requirements for the performance, marking and documentation are given. The Standard covers pressure sensitive mats and floors, regardless of type of energy used, e.g. electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic or mechanical. This standard covers mats and floors designed to detect: a) Persons weighing more than 35 kg; b) And persons (e.g. children) weighing more than 20 kg. The detection of persons weighing less than 20 kg is not covered by this standard. This European Standard does not specify the dimensions or the configuration of the effective sensing area of pressure sensitive mat(s) or floor(s) in relation to any particular application.

Machine-tools safety – Safety requirements for the design and construction of work holding chucks

This European Standard sets out the requirements and/or measures to remove the hazards and limit the risk on work holding chucks which are defined in 3.1. This European standard covers all the hazards relevant to this component. These hazards are listed in clause 4. The requirements of this standard concern designers, manufacturers, suppliers and importers of work holding chucks. This standard also includes information which the manufacturer shall provide to the user. This standard is primarily directed to components which are manufactured after the date of issue of this standard.

Safety of machinery – Human physical performance – Part 4: Evaluation of working postures and movements in relation to machinery

This European Standard presents guidance when designing machinery or its component parts in assessing and affecting health risks due only to machine-related postures and movements, i.e. during assembly, installation, operation, adjustment, maintenance, cleaning, repair, transport, and dismantlement. This European Standard specifies requirements for postures and movements without any or with only minimal external force exertion. The requirements are intended to reduce the health risks for nearly all healthy adults. This European Standard is not applicable to the machinery, which is manufactured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN.

Safety of machinery – Human physical performance – Part 3: Recommended force limits for machinery operation

This European Standard presents guidance to the manufacturer of machinery or its component parts and the writer of C-standards in controlling health risks due to machine-related muscular force exertion. This standard specifies recommended force limits for actions during machinery operation including construction, transport and commissioning (assembly, installation, adjustment), use (operation, cleaning, fault finding, maintenance, setting, teaching or process changeover) decommissioning, disposal and dismantling. The standard applies primarily to machines which are manufactured after the date of issue of the standard. This standard applies on one hand to machinery for professional use operated by the adult working population, who are healthy workers with ordinary physical capacity, and on the other hand to machinery for domestic use operated by the whole population including youth and old people. The recommendations are derived from research on European population. This document is not applicable to specify the machinery which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.

Safety of machinery – Human physical performance – Part 1: Terms and and definitions

This European Standard provides terms and definitions on concepts and parameters used for EN 1005-2, prEN 1005-3, EN 1005-4 and EN 1005-5. Basic concepts and general ergonomic principles for the design of machinery are dealt with in EN 292-1, EN 292-2 and EN 614-1. This document is not applicable to specify the machinery which is manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.

Safety of machinery – Safety requirements for fluid power systems and their components – Pneumatics

This standard applies to pneumatic systems and their components on machinery. It identifies hazards and factors which affect the safety of systems and their components when they are put to their intended use. Gas bottles and receivers are excluded from the scope of this standard. For receivers see EN 286-1. The principles specified apply to the design, construction and modification of new systems and their components and aspects of use including: – Assembly – Installation – Adjustment – Operation – Cleaning – Maintenance. Components are covered in the standard but only to the extent that safety requirements are given to allow the components to be safely integrated into a system’s design. The standard applies to systems and their components on machinery that are manufactured after the date of the adoption of this standard.
