  • IEC 61496-3 ED3: Sécurité des machines - Équipements de protection électrosensibles – Partie 3: Exigences particulières pour les équipements utilisant des dispositifs protecteurs optoélectroniques actifs sensibles aux réflexions diffuses (AOPDDR) consultation for comments
  • Safety of machinery - Electro-sensitive protective equipment - Part 3: Particular requirements for Active Opto-electronic Protective Devices responsive to Diffuse Reflection (AOPDDR)

March 2017

  • Proposal to remove EN 61496-1 from the OJEU because 

EN 61496-1 does not deal with the important issues that relate to the sensing technology used and hence a large number of the systematic issues that are specific to individual sensing technologies are not addressed. EN 61496-1 cannot be used without another part dealing with these sensing technologies. None of the other parts of the EN 61496 series of standards have been listed in the OJEU as they are not suitible.  As such the presumption of conformity given by the listing in the OJEU is not useful or needed and could be dangerous if EN 61496-1 is applied to new sensing technologies without due consideration of the systematic issues. 

  • Proposition de la présidence du CLC/TC 44X pour retirer du Journal officiel (JO) de l'Union européenne (JOUE) la norme EN 61496-1 (Sécurité des machines - Équipements de protection électro-sensibles - Partie 1 : prescriptions générales et essais)

La norme EN 61496-1 ne traite pas des questions importantes liées à la technologie de détection utilisée et, par conséquent, un grand nombre de problèmes systématiques spécifiques aux technologies de détection individuelles ne sont pas abordés. La norme EN 61496-1 ne peut pas être utilisée sans une autre partie traitant de ces technologies de détection. Aucune des autres parties de la série EN 61496 de normes n'a été répertoriée au JOUE car elles ne sont pas adaptées. En tant que tel, la présomption de conformité donnée par l'inscription au JOUE n'est ni utile ni nécessaire et pourrait être dangereuse si l'EN 61496-1 est appliquée aux nouvelles technologies de détection sans tenir dûment compte des questions systématiques.
