This interface consists of actuators, by means of which the operator initiates actions, and indicating devices, through which the operator receives information. NOTE 1 The meaning of this graphical symbol depends upon its orientation. Please download Chrome or Firefox or view our browser tips. It is the constant aim of BSI to improve the quality of our products and services. It is via the human-machine interface that the operator interacts with the machinery or process in an open-loop system see Figure 1.

Safety-related tactile signals shall be described on or near the actuating element and in the operating instructions. Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards.
Figure 3 — Zones of horizontal field of vision — 12 —EN Whilst their applications are mainly for electrotechnical purposes, the symbols shall be used for other types of actuators, for example, mechanical, hydraulic, using the same function.

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 and ambient noises; — conform to the requirements for recognition, acoustic, discrimination and unambiguity specified in ISO Need more than one copy?

If these details are to be used for any other purpose than implementation then the prior written permission of BSI must be obtained. 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. If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. The requirements of this standard should also be used, for example, as a reference standard by ISO 16310 IEC technical committees which prepare product family or dedicated product standards for machines.
For further discrimination and information, and especially to give additional emphasis, a flashing light should be used. NOTE 2 The recognition and the interpretation of a tactile signal implies that the operator knows the function of that signal.
The exposure 6310 immediately or over a period of time result in harm [ISO Active signals shall be provided to signal a hazard and to call persons to take a specific course of action.
