Language in which you want to receive the document.


This European Standard specifies health and safety design requirements for controls and control stations for all types of crane.
NOTE 1 Control systems are covered by other standards e.g. EN 60204-32, prEN 13135-1 and prEN 13135-2.
Annex C provides additional value to the requirements for cableless control systems as specified in EN 60204-32.
NOTE 2 Annex C will be deleted after WG 3 agreed to introduce it into their document prEN 13135-1.
NOTE 3 Specific requirements for particular types of crane are given in the appropriate European Standard for the particular crane type.
This standard does not deal with noise hazards because these are dealt with in safety standards for specific types of cranes. It also does not address the design of the cabin with regard to its sound insulation properties.
This European Standard covers specific hazards which could occur during the use of controls and control stations. It does not cover hazards which could occur during transport, construction, commissioning, modification, maintenance, de-commissioning or disposal.
The hazards covered by this standard are identified in clause 4.
This European Standard is applicable after the date of approval by CEN of this standard.
