4.3.1.4.1 After a short electrical power interruption or electrical burst as defined in EN 45501, all

sensing devices shall resume their normal function. When such a power interruption occurs, only the

weighing and identification cycle taking place during the interruption may be influenced. All other data

before shall remain unchanged.

4.3.1.4.2 If a power interruption longer than that defined in 4.3.1.4.1 occurs during ID or DQW

operations, the malfunction shall be indicated to the operator, and the sensing devices shall be

automatically put out of service. The return to normal operation shall only be possible after a reset

operation of the ID and DQW system by the operator. If power interruption occurs but not during ID or

DQW operations, automatic return to normal functioning shall take place.

4.3.1.4.3 The sensing devices shall continue to function correctly during the variations in the power

supply given in EN 45501.

4.3.1.4.4 Sensing devices operated from battery power shall indicate whenever the voltage drops

below the minimum required value and shall under those circumstances either continue to function

correctly, or be automatically put out of service.

4.3.1.5 Sensing devices except contact-less optical readers with cameras shall have a degree of

protection of at least IP 65. Contact-less optical readers with cameras shall have a degree of protection

of at least IP 68.

4.3.2 Additional requirements for identification systems
4.3.2.1 General requirements for all identification systems

The ID system shall have provisions that, upon each lift operation, the unique identification of the data

carrier is checked via the reader system’s internal firmware and tested for validity. The unique

identification is then passed to the OBC for further validity checks. Depending on the result of the check,

the system generates a status, OBC shall store this status and also generate a signal that could be used

to stop the lifter. This signal shall be generated by the OBC and shall be selectable whether it stops the

lifting cycle or not.

A procedure for further handling of detected errors shall be defined in agreement between the supplier

of the ID system and the operator.

SIST EN 14803:2020
EN 14803:2020 (E)
4.3.2.2 Additional requirements for contact-less transponder readers

The frequency at which the radio frequency identification system operates shall be one of the following

frequencies:
Low frequency < 135 kHz
Medium frequency 13,56 MHz
High frequency 2,45 GHz
4.3.2.3 Additional requirements for contact-less optical readers

Contact-less optical readers shall operate with wavelengths outside the range of the visible light.

4.3.3 Additional requirements for DQW systems
4.3.3.1 General requirements for all DQW systems

The DQW system shall have provisions that if any error is detected, the DQW result is marked

automatically, and this marking information is transferred to the DPC together with the associated DQW

results.

The DQW system shall have no characteristics likely to facilitate fraudulent use, whereas possibilities

for unintentional misuse shall be minimal. Components that influence the correct working of the system

shall be secured against such actions.
4.3.3.2 Additional requirements for weighing systems

The maximum permissible errors on the weighing result shall be in accordance with either EN 45501,

for non-automatic weighing instruments or 2.2 or 2.3 of OIML R 51 for automatic weighing instruments.

Attention is drawn to the fact that weighing instruments for this purpose may be subject to additional

national regulations, especially in case of weight price trading. Depending on the country of use, this

may lead to for example requirements for certification of the weighing instruments and full applicability

of EN 45501 for non-automatic weighing instruments or OIML R 51 for automatic weighing

instruments. If all the requirements of EN 45501 or OIML R 51 as appropriate are fulfilled, the

requirements of 4.3.1 are automatically fulfilled.
4.4 On Board Computer (OBC)

4.4.1 The OBC shall serve as central monitoring unit for all sensing devices and report important

malfunctions of the sensing devices (e.g. a defect load cell or reading device), with the exception of

weighing systems where the OBC is not part of the approval of the weighing system.

4.4.2 The OBC shall safely store data up to the moment that the safe transfer to the DPC is confirmed.

The storage capacity of the OBC shall be enough for storing the data of at least 10 000 bin emptying

operations.

4.4.3 The OBC shall monitor itself regarding any manual interference. If this is detected, the stored

information shall be marked.
4.4.4 The OBC shall have a degree of protection of at least IP 54.
