About This Item


Full Description

BS EN 61310-3:2008 specifies safety-related requirements for actuators, operated by the hand or by other parts of the human body, at the human-machine interface.

It gives general requirements for

- the standard direction of movement for actuators;

- the arrangement of an actuator in relation to other actuators;

- the correlation between an action and its final effects.

It is based on IEC 60447 but is also applicable to non-electrotechnical technologies such as mechanical and fluid-powered systems.

It covers single actuators as well as groups of actuators forming part of an assembly.

BS EN 61310-3:2008 does not specify any requirements for "touch screens" (such information is given in IEC 60073).
