Safety of machinery – Indication, marking and actuation – Part 1: Requirements for visual, acoustic and tactile signals
|Publication Date:||1 February 2007|
|ICS Code (Safety of machinery):||13.110|
This part of IEC 61310 specifies requirements for visual, acoustic and tactile methods of indicating safety-related information, at the human-machine interface and to exposed persons.
It specifies a system of colours, safety signs, markings and other warnings, intended for use in the indication of hazardous situations and health hazards and for meeting certain emergencies. It also specifies ways of coding visual, acoustic and tactile signals for indicators and actuators to facilitate the safe use and monitoring of the machinery.
This standard is based on IEC 60073 with regard to coding by colour and alternative means, but is not limited to electrotechnical aspects.
