Subject: [ RadSafe ] Interlocks - Any relevant ANSI Standards

Here at RPI some enterprizing students are engaged in a design project to
provide an interlock for access to our accelerator's target room. In an
effort to resolve one issue with the design I am looking to identify any
ANSI standard or similar standard that specifically addresses the
design/safety components of any interlock used for accelerators, multicurie
irradiation facilties, etc..
  So any info is appreciated
  If you wish to reply to me directly use my RPI address at collop at rpi.edu
  Thanks in advance
