This document specifies safety requirements for electrical devices including application software, apart for those in drive systems, for cableway installations designed to carry persons. This document is applicable to the various types of cableway installations and takes into account their environment. It does not apply to complex electronics and embedded software. For complex electronics and embedded software, reference is made to the relevant publications e.g. IEC 61508. Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is not covered in this document; cableways and their components should comply with general requirements for EMC. For electrical devices which are part of drive systems, the requirements of those sections listed in the scope of EN 13223 as relating to drive systems should be observed. This standard contains requirements for the prevention of accidents and protection of workers. It does not apply to cableway installations for the transportation of goods by rope or to inclined lifts.
