The minimum distance to the hazard zone shall be calculated by using the general Equation:
S=(K × T)+C
K: 2000 mm/s
C: 8(d-14), but not less than 0
d: is the sensor detection capability of the device, in millimetres [mm]
The minimum value of S shall be 100 mm.
Where the value for S is > 500 mm, the minimum value of S shall be calculated using K:1600 mm/s.
When the safeguard is used only for the detection of whole body access:
– The height of the lowest beam shall be ≤ 300 mm to prevent access under the detection zone.
– The height of the uppermost beam shall be ≥ 900 mm to prevent stepping over the detection zone.
