10.2 Safety Notices
10.2.1 Operator Safety
It is the responsibility of the user's organization to ensure that the AT3600 and its associated safety systems are installed, maintained, and operated in accordance with all safety guidance and legislation that may be in force locally. The Banner Micr- Screen (light curtain) will provide only part of the complete safety function that is required. The AT3600 and light curtain must be installed by a designated, qualified safety person who will conduct an overall assessment of the risks involved and provide operator training, safety notices, and further safety equipment as well as install the AT3600 and light curtain in accordance with local regulations.
When conducting a risk assessment and providing operator training and notices, it should be noted that the first safety feature of the AT3600 is the yellow indicating light on its front panel. This light will be lit when the AT3600 is running a test and may be generating dangerous voltages. (External indicating devices can also be used to show that the AT3600 is in a hazardous condition. See the 'Remote Port' description in the AT3600 user manual.) The operator should not attempt to touch the part under test or enter the safety enclosure when the yellow light is illuminated. The light curtain then provides supplementary safety protection against accidental entry into the safety enclosure by the operator.
