Household and similar electrical appliances - Test code for the determination of airborne acoustical noise - Part 2-1: Particular requirements for vacuum cleaners

IEC 60704-2-1:2014 applies to electrical vacuum cleaners (including their accessories and their component parts) for household use in or under conditions similar to those in households. This part of IEC 60704 applies as it is to electrical vacuum cleaners operating in dry conditions. Some additions and modifications for vacuum cleaners operating in wet conditions are under consideration. How to test robotic vacuum cleaners is under consideration for a future edition. This part of IEC 60704 does not apply to vacuum cleaners for industrial or professional purposes. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2000. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) introduction of a measuring method on hard floors; b) inclusion of values for measurement uncertainty; c) inclusion of values for standard deviation for declaration and verification; d) update of the definition of the standard test carpet.

Clauses of this European Standard addressing essential requirements or other
provisions of EU Directives

This European Standard has been prepared under a mandate given to CENELEC by the European

Commission to provide reliable, accurate and reproducible procedures and methods of measuring

airborne acoustical noise of household appliances, which take into account the recognised state-of-

the-art measurement methods.

This European Standard in conjunction with Part 1 specifies the test code for the determination of

airborne acoustical noise emission of vacuum cleaners for household and similar use. It shall be

applied implementing:

– Commissions delegated Regulation (EU) No 665/2013 supplementing Directive 2010/30/EU of the

European Parliament and of the Council with regard to energy labelling of vacuum cleaners;

– Commission Regulation (EU) No 666/2013 implementing Directive 2009/125/EC of the European

Parliament and of the Council with regard to ecodesign requirements for vacuum cleaners.

For determining and verifying airborne acoustical noise emission values declared on a printed label as

well as in a product fiche and in the technical documentation, see EN 60704-3.

WARNING: Other requirements and other EU Directives may be applicable to the products

falling within the scope of this standard.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 60704-2-1 has been prepared by subcommittee 59F: Floor

treatment appliances, of IEC technical committee 59: Performance of household and similar

electrical appliances.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2000. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
a) introduction of a measuring method on hard floors;
b) inclusion of values for measurement uncertainty;
c) inclusion of values for standard deviation for declaration and verification;

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

This Part 2-1 is intended to be used in conjunction with IEC 60704-1:2010, Household and

similar electrical appliances – Test code for the determination of airborne acoustical noise –

Part 1: General requirements.
NOTE When “Part 1” is mentioned in this standard, it refers to IEC 60704-1.

The relevant text of Part 1 as amended by this standard establishes the test code for vacuum

cleaners.

This Part 2-1 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 60704-1. When a

particular subclause of Part 1 is not mentioned in this Part 2-1, that subclause is applicable as

far as reasonable. Where this standard states "addition", "modification" or "replacement", the

relevant requirements, test specifications or explanatory matter in Part 1 should be adapted

accordingly.

Subclauses, tables and figures that are additional to those in Part 1 are numbered starting

from 101. Additional annexes are lettered AA, BB, etc.

Unless notes are in a new subclause or involve notes in Part 1, they are numbered starting

from 101, including those in a replaced clause or subclause.

A list of all the parts in the IEC 60704 series, published under the general title Household and

similar electrical appliances – Test code for the determination of airborne acoustical noise,

can be found on the IEC website.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

the stability date indicated on the IEC web site under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data

related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,

INTRODUCTION

The measuring conditions specified in this part of IEC 60704 provide for sufficient accuracy in

determining the noise emitted and comparing the results of measurements taken by different

laboratories, whilst simulating as far as possible the practical use of vacuum cleaners.

It is recommended to consider the determination of noise levels as part of a comprehensive

testing procedure covering many aspects of properties and performance of household vacuum

cleaners.

NOTE As stated in the introduction to IEC 60704-1, this test code is concerned with airborne noise only.
