Part 2-2: Particular requirements for vacuum cleaners
and water-suction cleaning appliances

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 60335-2-2 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 61: Safety of household and similar electrical appliances. This sixth edition cancels and replaces the fifth edition published in 2002 including its Amendment 1 (2004) and Amendment 2 (2006). It constitutes a technical revision. The principal changes in this edition as compared with the fifth edition of IEC 60335-2-2 is as follows (minor changes are not listed): – the text is aligned with IEC 60335-1:2001, and its Amendments 1 and 2 (see text marked with a marginal bar). SIST EN 60335-2-2:2011

60335-2-2 © IEC:2009(E) – 5 – The text of this standard is based on the following documents: FDIS Report on voting 61/3871/FDIS 61/3923/RVD

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2. This Part 2 is to be used in conjunction with the latest edition of IEC 60335-1 and its amendments. It was established on the basis of the fourth edition (2001) of that standard. NOTE 1 When “Part 1” is mentioned in this standard, it refers to IEC 60335-1. This Part 2 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 60335-1, so as to convert that publication into the IEC standard: Safety requirements for vacuum cleaners and water-suction cleaning appliances. When a particular subclause of Part 1 is not mentioned in this Part 2, that subclause applies as far as is reasonable. When this standard states "addition", "modification" or "replacement", the relevant text in Part 1 is to be adapted accordingly. NOTE 2 The following numbering system is used: – subclauses, tables and figures that are numbered starting from 101 are additional to those in Part 1; – 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;

– additional annexes are lettered AA, BB, etc. NOTE 3 The following print types are used: – requirements: in roman type; – test specifications: in italic type; – notes: in small roman type. Words in bold in the text are defined in Clause 3. When a definition concerns an adjective, the adjective and the associated noun are also in bold. The committee has decided that the contents of the base publication and its amendments will remain unchanged until the maintenance result 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, • replaced by a revised edition, or • amended. NOTE 4 The attention of National Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselves for conducting new or revised tests. It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this publication be adopted for implementation nationally not earlier than 12 months or later than 36 months from the date of publication. The following differences exist in the countries indicated below.

60335-2-2 © IEC:2009(E) – 7 – INTRODUCTION It has been assumed in the drafting of this International Standard that the execution of its provisions is entrusted to appropriately qualified and experienced persons. This standard recognizes the internationally accepted level of protection against hazards such as electrical, mechanical, thermal, fire and radiation of appliances when operated as in normal use taking into account the manufacturer's instructions. It also covers abnormal situations that can be expected in practice and takes into account the way in which electromagnetic phenomena can affect the safe operation of appliances. This standard takes into account the requirements of IEC 60364 as far as possible so that there is compatibility with the wiring rules when the appliance is connected to the supply mains. However, national wiring rules may differ. If an appliance within the scope of this standard also incorporates functions that are covered by another part 2 of IEC 60335, the relevant part 2 is applied to each function separately, as far as is reasonable. If applicable, the influence of one function on the other is taken into account. When a part 2 standard does not include additional requirements to cover hazards dealt with in part 1, part 1 applies.

NOTE 1 This means that the technical committees responsible for the part 2 standards have determined that it is not necessary to specify particular requirements for the appliance in question over and above the general requirements.

This standard is a product family standard dealing with the safety of appliances and takes precedence over horizontal and generic standards covering the same subject. NOTE 2 Horizontal and generic standards covering a hazard are not applicable since they have been taken into consideration when developing the general and particular requirements for the IEC 60335 series of standards. For example, in the case of temperature requirements for surfaces on many appliances, generic standards, such as ISO 13732-1 for hot surfaces, are not applicable in addition to part 1 or part 2 standards. An appliance that complies with the text of this standard will not necessarily be considered to comply with the safety principles of the standard if, when examined and tested, it is found to have other features that impair the level of safety covered by these requirements. An appliance employing materials or having forms of construction differing from those detailed in the requirements of this standard may be examined and tested according to the intent of the requirements and, if found to be substantially equivalent, may be considered to comply with the standard.

Part 2-2: Particular requirements for vacuum cleaners
and water-suction cleaning appliances
1 Scope
This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following.

This International Standard deals with the safety of electric vacuum cleaners and water-suction cleaning appliances for household and similar purposes, including vacuum cleaners for animal grooming, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V. It also applies to centrally-sited vacuum cleaners and automatic battery-powered cleaners. This standard also applies to motorized cleaning heads and current-carrying hoses associated with a particular vacuum cleaner.

Appliances not intended for normal household use, but which nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops and other premises for normal housekeeping purposes, are within the scope of this standard.

NOTE 101 Examples of such appliances are appliances intended to be used for normal housekeeping purposes in hotels, offices, schools, hospitals and similar premises.

As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, in general, it does not take into account

– persons (including children) whose
• physical, sensory or mental capabilities; or
• lack of experience and knowledge

prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction; – children playing with the appliance. NOTE 102 Attention is drawn to the fact that

– for appliances intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or aircraft, additional requirements may be necessary;

– in many countries additional requirements are specified by the national health authorities, the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour, the national water supply authorities and similar authorities.

NOTE 103 This standard does not apply to – appliances intended exclusively for industrial purposes;

– appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas); – wet and dry vacuum cleaners, including power brush, for commercial use (IEC 60335-2-69). SIST EN 60335-2-2:2011

This clause of Part 1 is applicable except as follows.
3.1.4 Addition:

NOTE 101 For appliances incorporating a booster setting, the rated power input corresponds to the operation of the appliance without the booster setting being used.

3.1.9 Replacement:

normal operation operation of the appliance under the following conditions: the appliance is supplied at rated voltage and operated continuously with the air inlet adjusted to give a power input Pm after 20 s

Three minutes later a final adjustment of the air inlet is made, if necessary.
Pm is calculated from the formula Pm = 0,5 (Pf + Pi)

where Pf is the power input in watts, after 3 min of operation with the air inlet unobstructed. Any device that ensures a flow of air to cool the motor in the event of a blockage of the main air inlet is allowed to operate; Pi is the power input in watts, after a further 20 s of operation with the air inlet blocked. Any device that is adjustable without the aid of a tool, and which ensures a flow of air to cool the motor in the event of a blockage of a main air inlet, is rendered inoperative.

If the appliance is marked with a rated voltage range, it is supplied at the mean value of the range if the difference between the limits of the range does not exceed 10 % of the mean value. If the difference exceeds 10 %, the supply voltage is the upper value of the range.

The measurements are made with the appliance fitted with a clean dust bag and filter, any water collection container being empty. If the appliance is intended to be used only with a hose, detachable nozzles and tubes are removed and the hose is laid out straight. If the appliance is provided with a hose as an accessory, it is operated without the hose.

Rotating brushes and similar devices are in operation but not in contact with any surface. Motorized cleaning heads are connected by means of the hose or tube and are in operation but not in contact with any surface.
