Robotics — Safety requirements for robot systems in an industrial environment — Part 2: Robot systems, robot applications and robot cells integration
|Publication Date:||11 December 2020|
|ICS Code (Industrial robots. Manipulators):||25.040.30|
This document specifies requirements for the integration of industrial robot systems, industrial robot applications and industrial robot cells. The following is addressed:
- the design, integration, commissioning, operation, maintenance, decommissioning and disposal of the industrial robot system, application or cell;
- integration of machines and components to the industrial robot system, application or cell;
- information for use for the design, integration, commissioning, operation, maintenance, decommissioning and disposal of the industrial robot system, application or cell;
This document is not applicable to the following uses and applications:
- law enforcement;
- military (defence);
- airborne and space, including outer space;
- healthcare of a person;
- prosthetics and other aids for the physically impaired;
- service robots, which provide a service to a person and as such the public can have access;
- consumer products, as this is household use to which the public can have access;
- lifting or transporting people;
- multi-purpose lifting devices or machinery, e.g. cranes, forklift trucks;
- mobile platforms;
- tele-operated manipulators.
NOTE: Applications for the automation of laboratories are not considered as medical or healthcare of a person.
This document deals with the significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events when used as intended and under specified conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer.
Robot systems can be used for a broad range of applications and integrated into robot cell(s). Therefore, it is not possible to provide a list of all significant hazards, hazardous situations or events into which a robot and robot application can be integrated. Moreover, same kind of applications can have different levels of risk, resulting from different designs which correspond to the intended application (e.g. paint spraying on large or small parts, handling of a small harmful payload like a hot metal bolt or a large harmless payload like a box of paper tissues).
This document also provides basic requirements for industrial robots used in applications as following, but does not cover the entirely the hazards related to:
- underground use;
- hygienic requirements;
- due to the processing of any material, e.g. food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, metal;
- nuclear environments;
- potentially explosive environments;
- use of robot systems in environments with hazardous ionizing and non-ionizing radiation levels;
- hazardous ionizing and non-ionizing radiation;
- handling loads the nature of which could lead to dangerous situations (e.g. molten metals, acids/bases, radiating materials);
- when the public or non-working adults have access.
Acoustic noise has been identified to be a significant hazard with industrial robot systems and is included in the scope of this document.
Other standards can be applicable to associated machinery and equipment in robot applications and robot cells.
