Product Overview ( Overview ) :

This European Standard specifies the safety requirements of a two-hand control device and its logic unit. It describes the main characteristics of two-hand control devices for the achievement of safety and sets out combinations of functional characteristics for three types. This standard provides requirements and guidance on the design and selection (based on a risk assessment) of two-hand control devices including their assessment, the prevention of defeat and the avoidance of faults. It also provides requirements and guidance for two-hand control devices containing a programmable electronic system.

This standard applies to all two-hand control devices, independent of the energy used, including:

  • two-hand control devices which are or are not integral parts of a machine
  • two-hand control devices which consist of one or more separate elements.

This standard does not apply to devices intended to be used as enabling devices, hold to run devices and as special control devices. It does not specify with which machines two-hand control devices have to be used. It also does not specify which types of two-hand-control device have to be used, and the distance between the two-hand control device and the danger zone.
