2 Robot safety standards Worldwide standardsISO manufacturersISO integratorsUSEUold standardRIA R15.06 :1999new standardRIA R drafttechnical report on ISORIA TRold standardEN ISO :2006new standardsEN ISO :2011EN ISO :2011collaborative robots technical specificationTS draft
3 Robot safety standards ANSI: American National Standard InstitutionRIA: Robot Industries AssociationUSANSI RIA R15.06 :1999old standard; about to be replaced by new standardcontains outdated definitionsANSI RIA R15.06 :2012 draftconsists of ISO and ISOincluding additional guidance for securing the operatorANSI is the american equivalent to the European CEN or Danish DSAmerican National Standards Institute
4 Robot safety standards TR: Technical ReportUSRIA TR R :2008technical report on how to use ISO :2006 in USrecommends best practices for safe integration of industrial robotsISO :2006 provides safety guidance for both robot manufacturer and robot integratorTR R covers the complete robot application
5 Robot safety standards OSHA: Occupational Safety And Health AdministrationUSIt is not required to comply with standards when making an installation, but it is recommended to comply with standardssimilar to ISO-standards in EUIn general all regulations/standards in US focuses on safety protection for the operator.In US the employer is 100% resonsible for the employeethe integrator must conduct a risk assesmentOSHA is law in USno specific OSHA standards covering industrial robotsOSHA 1910: standard for machine safety (similar to Machine Directive in EU)
6 Robot safety standards EN: European NormISO: International Standard OrganisationEUEN ISO :2006old standard expires end of 2012contained the 150N specificationEN ISO :2011standard for guiding manufacturers of industrial robotsspecifies requirements for the robot to be classified as a collaborative robotEN ISO :2011standard for guiding integrators of industrial robotsIt is not required to comply with standards, but it is recommended to comply with standards
7 Robot safety standards EUISOstandard containing definitions of Safety Categories and Performance LevelsUR complies with Cat. 3, PLdCat. 3 means redundant safety system (two-way parallel safety channels)Performance Level D means that on extremely rare occasions a failure can potentially happenThe standard is rarely used in US
8 Robot safety standards TS: Technical SpecificationEUTS draftcollaborative robot technical specificationdraft contains at present a table specifying maximum allowed impact (in Newtons) applied to specific body parts on a person and the subsequent injurySpecification is expected to be finished in 2013it is widely expected that the specification will be altered before official release
9 Robot safety standards CSA: Canadian Standards AssociationCanadaCSA Z :2008canadian safety standard for industrial robots and robot systemsstandard is expected to be updated with implementation of ISO and -2General terms in Canadaall robot installations must be validated by authorized personelCanada may have requirements forcing people to comply with standards
10 Robot safety standards UL: Underwriter LaboratoriesULLeading american test organisation that advises, validates and certifies for a wide range of productsfocuses on the quality of a productfocuses on the safety of a product, primarily in fire related issuesnot a requirement in USUL 1740old quality standard for industrial robots (17 years)new standard is planned > committee established (UR is in the committee )UR-robotsnot UL certifiedmost internal components (e.g. cables) are UL components today.
