Occupant Restraint System for Off-Road Work Machines
This SAE Standard establishes the minimum performance requirements for pelvic restraint systems (seat belts, anchorages, and the fastening elements of seat belts) necessary to restrain an operator or rider within a roll-over protective structure (ROPS) in the event of a machine roll-over, as defined in ISO 3471, ISO 8082-1, ISO 8082-2, ISO 12117-2, and ISO 13459, or tip-over protection structure (TOPS), in the event of a machine tip over as defined in ISO 12117.Note: Upper torso restraint requirements are defined in SAE J2292.
Rationale: Revision of this document includes updates for external document references to industry accepted ISO standards. Additional details were added to incorporate the current state of the art for restraint systems including retractor and latch plate specific requirements. Anchorage test requirements were updated to accommodate testing equipment. Center of gravity testing was added for seating systems with mass in excess of 70 kg.
