When Festo products are used in safetyoriented applications, all national and international
laws and regulations, for example the Machinery Directive, together with the relevant references to standards,
trade association rules and the applicable international regulations must be observed and complied with.
Unauthorised conversions or modifications to products and systems from
contain any equipment that generates ozone such as indoor air ionisers or high-voltage equipment.
The relative humidity should not exceed 75%. Condensation must be avoided in all cases.
Dust The parts must be stored in suitable containers. The storage room must as far as possible be free of dust.
In this context, attention should be paid in particular to the use of abrasion-resistant,
closedpore floor coverings, and a feed of dust particles from external sources (ambient air) should be prevented.
When repairs are being made to the building engineering in the storehouse (welding, grinding etc.),
the stored goods should be protected from welding spatter, chips etc.
Temperature The temperature range in storage areas must be between 10°C and 40°C all year round.
Rapid changes of temperature in the storage area should be avoided. Heat sources such as heater elements,
heating cables and the like should be shielded to ensure the stored goods are not directly subject to radiant heat.
UV radiation No direct sunlight (skylights, vent flaps etc.) and no high-UV artificial lighting.
Use fluorescent tubes with UV protection.
Ambient air Air circulation and permanently feeding (proportionally) ambient air to the storage room is absolutely essential.
You must prevent any media that may affect the materials, e.g. solvents and the like arising from production processes,
from entering the storage areas. The storage location should not
The product is to perform a safety function. A risk or safety analysis is required.
