The operation of the light source may be related to or independent of the actuator action irc NOTE To be used particularly when symbol is also used on the same equipment. IEC A Fast run; fast speed To identify the switch or switch position by which a faster than normal run for example, of tape is started in the indicated direction.

It presents the UK view on standards in Europe and at the international level. Exigences pour les signaux visuels, acoustiques et tactiles.

Figure 4 — Examples of shapes that can be discriminated by touch alone Table 6 gives examples of means of 613110-1. It is identical to IEC This standard is based on IEC with regard to coding by colour and alternative means, but is not limited to electrotechnical aspects. To this end, such signals and their associated coding shall be applied consistently throughout the machinery.


Not more than five different shapes, such as the examples given in Figure 4, shall be used in one application. Same meaning as A. Different types of coding such as colour, shape or time are used as appropriate to the demands of the task of the operator.

Indication, marking and actuation. Telegraphy, facsimile and data communication IEC NOTE 2 The measures taken should be determined from the risk assessment. The following dates were fixed: Action for protection – sweeping sounds or rescue – bursts of sounds – alternating tone pitch, for mandatory or priority action two or three frequency steps CAUTION Pattern of segments with constant pitch, the shortest at least 0,3 s; no more than two different lengths of segments in a pattern, preferably the first one long.

Methods of coding shall be selected from, but need not be limited to, the use of the following methods ifc alone or in combination supplementary means: Colours of indicators and actuators shall be in accordance with Table 2. For further discrimination and information, and especially to give additional emphasis, a flashing light should be used. Requirements for visual, acoustic and tactile signalsICS At human-machine interfaces, warning and danger signals need to convey safety-related meanings for the safe use and monitoring of machinery for exposed persons and operators.
