Hello Scott, Assuming you are integrating the robot cell in the US, you will want to follow ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012, Part 2 (Note: ANSI/RIA adopted ISO10218, Part 1 and Part 2). Clause 188.8.131.52 dictates using ISO1357 to determine the required height, with the a minimum height of 1400mm (55in) from the adjacent walking surface. ISO13857, Table 2 - Reaching Over Protective Structures - High Risk, is the table you want to refer to. In general terms, industry standard is a minimum of 1800mm (72in), and possibly more depending on the height of the robot hazard, distance, risk of material being flung outside the fenced area etc.
