Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 January 2013
Status: inactive
Page Count: 108
ICS Code (Other electrical equipment for working in special conditions): 29.260.99
ICS Code (Safety of machinery): 13.110
scope:

This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following:

This part of IEC 61496 specifies requirements for the design, construction and testing of electro-sensitive protective equipment (ESPE) designed specifically to detect persons as part of a safety-related system, employing active opto-electronic protective devices (AOPDs) for the sensing function. Special attention is directed to features which ensure that an appropriate safety-related performance is achieved. An ESPE may include optional safetyrelated functions, the requirements for which are given in Annex A of IEC 61946-1:2012 and of this part.

This part of IEC 61496 does not specify the dimensions or configurations of the detection zone and its disposition in relation to hazardous parts for any particular application, nor what constitutes a hazardous state of any machine. It is restricted to the functioning of the ESPE and how it interfaces with the machine.

Excluded from this part are AOPDs employing radiation at wavelengths outside the range 400 nm to 1500 nm.

This part of IEC 61496 may be relevant to applications other than those for the protection of persons, for example, the protection of machinery or products from mechanical damage. In those applications, additional requirements may be necessary, for example, when the materials that are to be recognized by the sensing function have different properties from those of persons.

This part does of IEC 61496 not deal with EMC emission requirements.
