Standards are also available from the BSI website at http: IEC A Recapitulate To identify the control or the indicator which permits rapid access within a recorded programme to repeat the section which has just been played. Requirements for visual, acoustic and tactile signals 1 Scope This part of IEC specifies requirements for visual, acoustic and tactile methods of indicating safety-related information, 6310-1 the human-machine interface and to exposed persons.
Active signals shall be provided to signal a hazard and to call persons to take a specific course of action. NOTE To be used in association with the symbol Switchgear, controlgear and fuses IEC An acoustic signal shall — have a sound level that is perceptibly higher than the level of ambient noise so that it is audible without being excessive or painful; — be easily recognizable, particularly in terms of pulse length and the interval between pulses or groups of pulses, and be clearly distinct from any other acoustic signal 61130-1 ambient noises; — conform to the requirements for recognition, acoustic, discrimination and unambiguity specified in ISO Other requirements and iex EC Directives may be applicable to the products falling within the scope of this standard.
This European Standard supersedes EN Safety-related tactile signals shall be described on or near the actuating element and in the operating instructions. Users are responsible 61301-1 its correct application. We would be grateful if anyone finding an inaccuracy or ambiguity while using this British Standard would inform the Secretary of the technical committee responsible, the identity of which can be found on ice inside front cover.

Requirements for visual, acoustic and tactile signalsICS Supplementary signs shall conform to ISO IEC Emergency stop To identify an emergency stop control device. NOTE 1 Tactile signals are conveyed when a part of the human body, for example, finger, hand, foot, is intentionally brought into contact with a spatial surface of an actuator, for example, a push-button, a lever. Information shall be provided to enable instructions to be given to persons who may need to respond to such codes.
Not more than five different shapes, such as the examples given in Figure 4, shall be used in one application. Worldwide Standards We can source any standard from anywhere in the world.
