Follow-up time measurements are an important basis for the correct positioning of AOPDs!
Only an appropriate safety distance can ensure that the dangerous movements come to a standstill before a person can reach the point of operation. However, the follow-up time of the machine/plant can be considerably extended due to wear and tear on the components. The timely stopping of all dangerous movements and thus reliable protection by the installed AOPD is no longer guaranteed.
For this reason, the necessary follow-up time measurements are required by law before the first commissioning, after longer downtimes, after modifications and at regular intervals by a proper safety inspection.
