This European Standard applies to industrial trucks regardless of the power source (called only trucks) as defined in ISO 5053, variable reach trucks and their electrical/electronic systems when used in Residential, Commercial, Light Industry and Industrial Environments (see EN 61000-6-32007 and EN 61000-6-2:2005).
This European Standard defines:
- the requirements and the limit values for electromagnetic emission and immunity;
- the procedure and criteria for testing trucks and their electrical/electronic systems.
This Standard does not cover:
- trucks intended for use outside the electromagnetic environments specified above;
- trucks intended for use in the public domain with maximum speed exceeding 25 km/h;
- driverless industrial trucks and their systems;
- interaction between systems on the trucks;
- interference to on-board radio equipment;
- equipment connected to AC-mains which is only used when the truck is not being operated (e.g. on board charger)
This sub-part of BS 7121-2 gives recommendations for the pre-use checks, in-service inspection, maintenance, thorough examination (in service and following exceptional circumstances) and supplementary testing of cargo handling and container cranes used in ports and inland facilities. This sub-part of BS 7121-2 is applicable to the following types of cranes:
• ship to shore or quay cranes;
• slewing jib cranes, including mobile harbour cranes;
• level luffing slewing jib cranes;
• rail mounted gantry cranes;
• rubber tyred gantry cranes;
• straddle carrier cranes;
• scotch derricks;
• boat hoists.
This sub-part of BS 7121-2 also covers lifting attachments for use in conjunction with the cranes, including container spreaders, overheight frames, rotators, grabs, magnets and crane baskets used to access containers on ships.
This sub-part of BS 7121-2 is not applicable to permanently installed cranes on marine and other water-borne vessels.
This sub-part of BS 7121-2 is not applicable to loader cranes permanently installed on quays or in other static locations (see BS 7121-2-4).
