139 Replace the existing subclause 22.104 with the following:
140 “22.104 Working area

141 When the machine is operating in automatic mode, the machine shall not be able to leave the working

142 area. It shall not be possible for the machine to cross the boundary of the working area by a distance

143 greater than one full length of the machine when operating in automatic mode.

144 The boundary of the working area may be established by the use of a perimeter delimiter as specified

145 in 22.104.2 or by a pre-programmed area.

146 If the machine is placed outside the working area, it shall not be able to operate at a distance of more

147 than 1 m from the boundary of the working area to the nearest part of the machine, unless under manual

148 control.

149 If the machine fails to receive any signal that is required to recognize the working area, the machine

150 shall travel not more than 1 m or travel such that it is not displaced by more than 1 m and the cutting

151 means shall stop within 5 s from the instant the machine fails to receive any signal that is required to

152 recognize the working area to the time that the cutting means stops in accordance with 20.102.2.

153 If the machine regains recognition of the working area, the machine may operate in automatic mode,

154 providing the cutting means start-up indication procedure in 22.110 is completed.

155 If the working area is changed, it shall not be possible for the machine to operate in automatic mode

156 unless the restart procedure in 20.102.6 is completed. This requirement is not applicable for perimeter

157 delimiters.
158 Compliance is checked by inspection, by measurement and by practical test.

159 If the compliance relies on the operation of an electronic circuit, it is checked under the following

160 condition:

161 1) the fault conditions in a) to g) of 19.11.2 applied one at a time to the electronic circuit.

162 The total travelling distance and/or the total stopping time, as a result of condition 1), shall not exceed

163 twice of the values given above. Under this condition, a manual operation shall be required to restart

164 the cutting means, such a restart shall only be allowed for one attempt.

165 If the electronic circuit is programmable, the software shall contain measures to control the fault/error

166 conditions specified in Table R.1 and is evaluated in accordance with the relevant requirements of

167 Annex R.
168 22.104.1 Void
169 22.104.2 Perimeter delimiter

170 If a perimeter delimiter is provided which uses a boundary wire that emits a signal to indicate the limit

171 of the working area, the maximum voltage shall not exceed safety extra-low voltage.

172 Compliance is checked by measurement.”
173 Replace the existing subclause 22.105.2 with the following:
174 “22.105.2 Obstruction sensors

175 The machine shall be provided with (an) obstruction sensor(s). In automatic mode, the sensor(s)

176 shall be active and capable of performing its intended function in all operating positions and in all

177 directions of travel, except those directions of travel where

178 — the cutting means is not operating and the distance travelled does not exceed 2,0 times the length

179 of the machine; or

180 — the cutting means is operating and the distance travelled does not exceed the distance from the

181 edge of the machine in the direction of travel to the nearest cutting means tip circle.

182 NOTE 1 The machine does not have to incorporate discrete sensing devices for each sensor requirement. The

183 various sensing functions can be achieved by fewer devices that respond to multiple stimuli. Sensing requirements

184 can also be fulfilled by mechanical devices instead of electrical circuits.

185 The maximum kinetic energy of a machine that could be imparted to an obstruction upon impact when

186 travelling in automatic mode shall be 5 J.

187 The maximum force applied by the machine against an obstruction in automatic mode shall not be

188 greater than

189 — 260 N during the first 0,5 s after impact and a minimum of 50 N is exceeded; and

190 — 130 N thereafter.

191 NOTE 2 ISO/TS 15066:2016 provides guidance on relevant values of maximum force.

192 If an obstruction sensor is activated, the traction drive in the direction of travel shall stop within

193 t = D/v, where
t is the traction drive stopping time;

D is the distance from the front edge of the machine to the nearest edge of the nearest

cutting means tip circle; and
v is the velocity of the machine upon approach.

194 The machine shall then restart in a different direction to allow the machine to move away from the object

195 such that the sensor is deactivated within 3 s of initial activation. If the sensor is not deactivated within

196 3 s of initial activation, the cutting means shall stop as required by 20.102.2.

197 An additional non-contact sensor, if relied upon to reduce speed in order to fulfil the requirement for

198 maximum force upon impact, is permitted providing that it responds to a rigid non-metallic target of:

199 — cylindrical shape;
200 — (70 ± 2) mm diameter by (400 ± 5) mm high, standing on end;
201 — of a colour or shade that matches the background; and
202 — normalized to the ambient temperature.

203 Compliance is checked by inspection, by measurement, by the following test and by 20.102.2.

204 The machine is placed on a level test surface as described in CC.3. The machine shall be made to

205 collide with a force measuring means. The force to operate the obstruction sensor at impact shall be

206 measured parallel to the ground plane and vertically aligned with the point of contact with the force

116 When the machine is operating in automatic mode, the machine shall not be able to leave the

117 working area. It shall not be possible for the machine to cross the boundary of the working area by a

118 distance greater than one full length of the machine when operating in automatic mode.

119 The boundary of the working area may be established by the use of a perimeter delimiter as

120 specified in 22.104.2 or by a pre-programmed area.

121 If the machine is placed outside the working area, it shall not be able to operate at a distance of more

122 than 1 m from the boundary of the working area to the nearest part of the machine, unless under

123 manual control.

125 shall travel not more than 1 m or travel such that it is not displaced by more than 1 m and the cutting

126 means shall stop within 5 s from the instant the machine fails to receive any signal that is required to

127 recognize the working area to the time that the cutting means stops in accordance with 20.102.2.

128 If the machine regains recognition of the working area, the machine may operate in automatic mode,

129 providing the cutting means start-up indication procedure in 22.110 is completed.

130 If the working area is changed, it shall not be possible for the machine to operate in automatic mode

131 unless the restart procedure in 20.102.6 is completed. This requirement is not applicable for

132 perimeter delimiters.
133 Compliance is checked by inspection, by measurement and by practical tests.

134 If the compliance relies on the operation of an electronic circuit, it is checked under the following

135 condition:

136 1) the fault conditions in a) to g) of 19.11.2 applied one at a time to the electronic circuit.

137 The total travelling distance and/or the total stopping time, as a result of condition 1), shall not

138 exceed twice of the values given above. Under this condition, a manual operation shall be required to

139 restart the cutting means, such a restart shall only be allowed for one attempt.
