Hi, can the emergency stop be used for lock out point (controlled entry) to enter a machine cell for short term activity like cleaning, changing a weld rod, etc. Does any standard restrict such use of lock out point from ANSI/CSA, ISO standard.

The emergency stop device is not an energy isolating device.
