The YAMAHA robot (robot and controller) is one component that is incorporated into the customer’s system (built-in equipment), and we declare that the YAMAHA robots conform to the EC Directives only within the scope of built-in equipment (semi-finished product). So, no CE marks are affixed to the YAMAHA robot products.
Cautions regarding compliance with EC Directives
The YAMAHA robot (robot and controller) is not, in itself, a robot system. The YAMAHA robot-series product is one component that is incorporated into the customer’s system (built-in equipment), and we declare that the YAMAHA robots conform to the EC Directives only within the scope of built-in equipment. This does not therefore guarantee that the YAMAHA robot-series product conforms to the EC Directives if only the robot is used independently. The customer who incorporates YAMAHA robot products into the customer’s final system, which will be shipped to or used in the European region, should verify that the overall system conforms to the EC Directives.
Applicable directives and their related standards
Directives applicable to YAMAHA robots and related standards are shown below.
To comply with EC directives, customers using YAMAHA robots must always build and install their own external safety circuits after selecting product components (safety relays, etc.) according to performance levels and safety categories required by the customer equipment.
For details about examples of external safety circuits, the user’s manual should be referred to.
Compliance with EMC Directives
In order to conform to the EMC Directives, the customer should evaluate the final system (overall system) and take necessary countermeasures. As examples of EMC countermeasures for single YAMAHA robot product are described in the user’s manual, these descriptions should be referred to.
Cautions regarding official language of EU countries
Only English which is “one of the official languages of the EU” is utilized in the manuals, warning labels, operating screens, and the Declaration of Incorporation for this product.
If warning text appears on the warning label, then Japanese may also sometimes be listed along with the English.
