UL Standard for Safety Requirements for Electrical Equipment for Measurement, Control, and Laboratory Use – Part 2-091: Particular Requirements for Cabinet X-Ray Systems
|Publication Date:||8 August 2014|
Equipment included in scope
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:
a) equipment intended to apply X-radiation to humans or animals;
b) 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
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-emit
