|Publication Date:||7 December 2007|
1.1 These requirements cover robots and robotic equipment rated 600 V or less and intended for installation in accordance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70. Since end-use installation of a robot and robotic equipment may vary for each user application, guidelines for end-product installation may be evaluated to the applicable sections of ANSI/RIA R15.06, Standard for Industrial Robots and Robot Systems-Safety Requirements. Portions of the requirements in this Standard have been excerpted from the Robotic Industries Association's (RIA) Standard for Industrial Robots and Robot Systems - Safety Requirements, ANSI/RIA R15.06.
1.2 These requirements cover robotic equipment and systems intended for indoor and outdoor use in applications such as parts assembly, parts transfer, automated material handling, inspection, loading, diecasting, deburring, welding, paint spraying, clinical/diagnostic systems, pharmaceutical applications, commercial food processing, automated vehicle refueling systems, library book handling/sorting, clean room applications, medical use for surgery, mobile robots, automated guided vehicles, automated storage/retrieval systems, and the like.
