Mobile remotely controlled systems for nuclear and radiological applications – General requirements
|Publication Date:||1 November 2020|
|ICS Code (Nuclear energy in general):||27.120.01|
This document defines the general requirements for Mobile Remotely Controlled Systems (MRCSs) for nuclear and radiological applications such as integrity inspections, repair of components, handling of radioactive materials, and monitoring of physical conditions and radiation dose intensity in specific areas. (Refer to Annex A for more information regarding the main purposes of the MRCS.)
MRCS is used in the concerned area where human access is difficult or impossible during normal operation, transient and accidents, and recovery from an accident in nuclear facilities.
This document applies to MRCSs that are used to support nuclear and radiological facilities.
These general requirements encompass high-level performance requirements regarding sensors, monitoring devices, control devices, interfacing mechanisms, simulation methods, and verification methods thereof in a normal environment or extreme environmental conditions, such as high radiation, high temperature, and high humidity environments.
In this document, the term "MRCS" used hereinafter refers to a mobile remotely controlled system used for nuclear and radiological applications.
