IEC 61496-2 specifies requirements for the design, construction and testing ofelectro-sensitive protective equipment (ESPE) designed specifically to detect persons as partof a safety-related system, employing active opto-electronic protective devices (AOPDs) forthe sensing function. Special attention is directed to features which ensure that anappropriate safety-related performance is achieved. An ESPE can include optional safetyrelatedfunctions, the requirements for which are given in Annex A of IEC 61496-1:2020 andof this document.This document does not specify the dimensions or configurations of the detection zone and itsdisposition in relation to hazardous parts for any particular application, nor what constitutes ahazardous state of any machine. It is restricted to the functioning of the ESPE and how itinterfaces with the machine.Excluded from this document are AOPDs employing radiation at wavelengths outside therange 400 nm to 1 500 nm.This document can be relevant to applications other than those for the protection of persons,for example, the protection of machinery or products from mechanical damage. In thoseapplications, additional requirements can be necessary, for example, when the materials thatare to be recognized by the sensing function have different properties from those of persons.This document does not deal with electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) emissionrequirements.
