PH10 Safety Warnings

EN - Warnings

Where this symbol Warning triangle - yellow is displayed on the product the user must refer to the installation and user guide for information and safety advice.

Pinch hazards exist between moving parts and between moving and static parts. Do not hold the probe head during movements, or when manually changing a probe.

Beware of unexpected movement. The user should remain outside the full working envelope of probe head/extension/probe combinations.

In all applications involving the use of machine tools or CMMs, eye protection is recommended.

There are normally no user-serviceable parts inside Renishaw mains-powered units. Return defective units to an authorised Renishaw Customer Service Centre.

Replace blown fuses with new components of the same type. Refer to the safety information in the relevant product documentation.

For instructions regarding the safe cleaning of Renishaw products, refer to the maintenance information in the relevant product documentation.

Remove power before performing any maintenance operations.

Refer to the machine supplier's operating instructions.

It is the machine supplier's responsibility to ensure that the user is made aware of any hazards involved in operation, including those mentioned in Renishaw product documentation, and to ensure that adequate guards and safety interlocks are provided.

Under certain circumstances the probe signal may falsely indicate a probe-seated condition. Do not rely on probe signals to stop machine movement.

If the equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer, the protection provided by the equipment may be impaired.

The expected method of providing an emergency stop for Renishaw products is to remove power.
