Cautions on KCs (Korean Certificate Safety) specifications

About KCs

KCs is a system that conforms to Korean Industrial Safety and Health Act and self-regulatory safety confirmation declaration of hazardous machines and devices. For machines specified in this system, the KCs mark needs to be indicated after conducting the forced certification or self-regulatory safety confirmation declaration. Industrial robots that have manipulators with 3 or more axes are specified as machines needing the self-regulatory safety confirmation declaration in South Korea's Ministry of Employment and Labor Notification No. 1201-46.
Its safety standards are defined in separate table 2 of this notification.

About measures for KCs

For some YAMAHA robot models, this self-regulatory safety confirmation declaration is conducted to register these models. Additionally, the KCs mark is indicated on the robots that have been declared. When you investigate to purchase a robot to be used in South Korea, check whether or not this robot conforms to KCs and order it with the KCs specifications specified.

The YAMAHA robot is a unit that is incorporated into the customer's system. Therefore, when the customer incorporates the robot into the customer's system, additional safety measures need to be taken. For details, see "Reference Manual, Measures for safety standards".
