    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides requirements for the design, construction, testing, installation, commissioning, modification and general safeguarding of remote control systems for mining equipment. This Standard is applicable to both coal and metalliferous mining machines used in surface and underground mines.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for the design, construction, testing, installation, commissioning and modification of remote control systems for mining equipment and machinery. It also recommends safeguarding practices and the provision for training of personnel associated with the operation and maintenance of such equipment and machinery.It applies to systems where the remote controls are located with the operator who is expected to remain in visual contact (direct or teleremote) with the equipment or machine being controlled. Typical systems of remote control may incorporate, but are not limited to, radio or infra-red transmitters and receivers or direct electrical connection. This Standard recognizes that remote control equipment may be a subset of semi-automated and automated systems.This Standard focuses on minimizing the risk to mine workers from unexpected movement of remote controlled machines or parts of machines. Risks from hazards such as chemicals, electricity (shocks and burns) and explosions are not intended to be covered by this Standard.This Standard is focussed on the electrical interface but the design, risk assessment principles and some of the specific requirements are applicable to hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
