The Safety Standard Mix The Safety Standard Mix There are several standards that robotics manufacturers and end-users need to be aware of. Six of the standards are described here. A single, international safety standard would go a long way toward eliminating confusion and ensuring that any given robot complies with safety guidelines.IEC 61508 (International Electrotechnical Commission): An international standard that outlines functional safety of electrical/electronic/programmable electronic safety-related systems. The standard is generic in that it applies to these systems irrespective of their applications, but it emphasizes how safety instruments need to be designed and maintained to guarantee a certain safety level. http://www.managingautomation.com/maonline/magazine/read/3672
