Why is a safety distance between the inside of a fence and a hazard required?
Fingers are about 120 mm long and therefore the minimum gap between the fence and the robot is 120 mm. If the mesh pitch allows a person to stick the index finger in together with the thumb, the distance will be 200 mm instead (see EN ISO 13857).
