CENELEC - EN 61010-2-091

Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use - Part 2-091: Particular requirements for cabinet x-ray systems

active, Most Current
Organization: CENELEC
Publication Date: 1 August 2012
Status: active
Page Count: 20
ICS Code (Electrical and electronic testing): 19.080
ICS Code (Chemical laboratories. Laboratory equipment): 71.040.10
scope:

This clause of Part 1 is applicable, except as follows:

Equipment included in scope

Replacement:

Replace the text with the following:

This part of IEC 61010 specifies particular safety requirements for CABINET X-RAY SYSTEMS.

A CABINET X-RAY SYSTEM is a system that contains an X-ray tube installed in a cabinet which, independently of existing architectural structures except the floor on which it may be placed, is intended to contain at least that portion of a material being irradiated, provide radiation attenuation, and exclude personnel from the interior during generation of X-radiation.

These CABINET X-RAY SYSTEMS are used in industrial, commercial, and public environments, for example, to inspect materials, to analyze materials, and to screen baggage.

Equipment excluded from scope

Addition:

Add the following new items to the list:

aa) equipment intended to apply X-radiation to humans or animals;

bb) equipment incorporating an X-ray tube but not incorporating complete shielding against X-radiation hazards, such as:

1) equipment intended to be used within a shielded room which excludes personnel during operation;

2) equipment intended to be used with separate portable or temporary shielding;

3) equipment intended to produce an emerging beam of X-radiation.

Aspects included in scope

Addition:

Add the following text at the end of the first paragraph:

This part of IEC 61010 specifies requirements for the design and methods of construction of CABINET X-RAY SYSTEMS to provide adequate protection for OPERATORS, bystanders, trained service personnel, and the surrounding area against unintentionally-emitted X-radiation and from mechanical HAZARDS related to their conveyors.
