1 Robot safety standards
IMTS Chicago 2012 Robot safety standards

2 Robot safety standards
Worldwide standards ISO manufacturers ISO integrators US EU old standard RIA R15.06 :1999 new standard RIA R draft technical report on ISO RIA TR old standard EN ISO :2006 new standards EN ISO :2011 EN ISO :2011 collaborative robots technical specification TS draft

3 Robot safety standards
ANSI: American National Standard Institution RIA: Robot Industries Association US ANSI RIA R15.06 :1999 old standard; about to be replaced by new standard contains outdated definitions ANSI RIA R15.06 :2012 draft consists of ISO and ISO including additional guidance for securing the operator ANSI is the american equivalent to the European CEN or Danish DS American National Standards Institute

4 Robot safety standards
TR: Technical Report US RIA TR R :2008 technical report on how to use ISO :2006 in US recommends best practices for safe integration of industrial robots ISO :2006 provides safety guidance for both robot manufacturer and robot integrator TR R covers the complete robot application

5 Robot safety standards
OSHA: Occupational Safety And Health Administration US It is not required to comply with standards when making an installation, but it is recommended to comply with standards similar to ISO-standards in EU In general all regulations/standards in US focuses on safety protection for the operator. In US the employer is 100% resonsible for the employee the integrator must conduct a risk assesment OSHA is law in US no specific OSHA standards covering industrial robots OSHA 1910: standard for machine safety (similar to Machine Directive in EU)

6 Robot safety standards
EN: European Norm ISO: International Standard Organisation EU EN ISO :2006 old standard expires end of 2012 contained the 150N specification EN ISO :2011 standard for guiding manufacturers of industrial robots specifies requirements for the robot to be classified as a collaborative robot EN ISO :2011 standard for guiding integrators of industrial robots It is not required to comply with standards, but it is recommended to comply with standards

7 Robot safety standards
EU ISO standard containing definitions of Safety Categories and Performance Levels UR complies with Cat. 3, PLd Cat. 3 means redundant safety system (two-way parallel safety channels) Performance Level D means that on extremely rare occasions a failure can potentially happen The standard is rarely used in US

8 Robot safety standards
TS: Technical Specification EU TS draft collaborative robot technical specification draft contains at present a table specifying maximum allowed impact (in Newtons) applied to specific body parts on a person and the subsequent injury Specification is expected to be finished in 2013 it is widely expected that the specification will be altered before official release

9 Robot safety standards
CSA: Canadian Standards Association Canada CSA Z :2008 canadian safety standard for industrial robots and robot systems standard is expected to be updated with implementation of ISO and -2 General terms in Canada all robot installations must be validated by authorized personel Canada may have requirements forcing people to comply with standards

10 Robot safety standards
UL: Underwriter Laboratories UL Leading american test organisation that advises, validates and certifies for a wide range of products focuses on the quality of a product focuses on the safety of a product, primarily in fire related issues not a requirement in US UL 1740 old quality standard for industrial robots (17 years) new standard is planned > committee established (UR is in the committee ) UR-robots not UL certified most internal components (e.g. cables) are UL components today.
