Title: METHOD FOR ENABLING AN ACTIVE OPERATING STATE OF A HAND-HELD POWER TOOL AS A FUNCTION OF WHETHER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT IS CARRIED OR WORN BY AN OPERATOR OF THE HAND-HELD POWER TOOL
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for enabling at least one active operating state of a hand-held power tool (14a, 14b) by means of at least one infrastructure unit (12a, 12b) as a function of whether protective equipment (16a, 16b) is carried and/or worn by an operator (21) of the hand-held power tool (14a, 14b), wherein a mobile functional unit (22) is integrated on or in the hand-held power tool (14a, 14b), which functional unit (22) is then provided for controlling an active operating state of the hand-held power tool (14a, 14b, 14c), having at least the following steps: transmitting at least one ID of at least a first protective equipment element (18a) of a first piece of protective equipment (16a) to at least a first infrastructure unit (12a), wherein the first infrastructure unit (12a) receives the ID of the first protective equipment element (18a) of the first piece of protective equipment (16a), transmission of at least a first signal by the first infrastructure unit (12a) to the mobile functional unit (22) which is integrated into the hand-held power tool (14a, 14b, 14c).
