NOTE: For ambient temperatures under 40 °C the maximum output power for the SPA3 is 800 W. For temperatures between 40 °C and 50 °C the maximum power is 400 W.
WARNING: Switching off or isolating the SPA3 may NOT prevent unexpected machine movement. The user is advised to isolate the machine from the electricity supply, compressed air or other energy sources in accordance with the machine manufacturer's instructions before entering the danger zone or performing any maintenance operations.
If the equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer, the protection provided by the equipment may be impaired.
The emergency stop safety system that has been integrated into the SPA3 is designed to achieve category 2 to standard BS EN ISO13849-1:2008. This can be hardware configured to obtain category B. The risk assessment made by the system installer on the installation should therefore have determined which category is required.
CAUTION: It is strongly recommended that the CMM manufacturer or retrofitter includes a periodic test of the emergency stop and if fitted, the associated reset switch in their maintenance instructions.
The SPA3 must only be commissioned through Renishaw software. Failure to do so may result in unexpected machine movement.
