SS-EN-ISO-13856-2 › Safety of machinery - Pressure-sensitive protective devices - Part 2: General principles for design and testing of pressure-sensitive edges and pressure-sensitive bars (ISO 13856-2:2013)
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This document specifies general principles and requirements for the design and testing of pressure-sensitive edges and pressure-sensitive bars used as safeguards and not as actuating devices for normal operation. It is applicable to pressure-sensitive edges and pressure-sensitive bars, with or without an external reset facility, used to detect persons or body parts of them who can be exposed to a hazard such as moving parts. This document is primarily aimed at safety and reliability rather than suitability. This document is restricted to the functioning of pressure-sensitive edges and pressure-sensitive bars and does not specify the requirements for their application (e.g. dimensions with regard to a particular application). This document is not applicable to specify the dimensions of pressure-sensitive edges or pressure-sensitive bars in relation to a particular application. This document does not apply to stopping devices according to EN 60204-1 used only for normal operation, including emergency stopping, of machinery. Additional requirements can be necessary, where pressure-sensitive edges or pressure-sensitive bars are used in locations accessible to elderly or disabled people or children.
