European foreword

This document [EN 50636-2-107:2015/A2:2020] has been prepared by CLC/TC 116 “Safety of motor-

operated electric tools”.
The following dates are fixed:
• latest date by which this document has (dop) 2020-09-27
to be implemented at national level by
publication of an identical national
standard or by endorsement
• latest date by which the national (dow) 2022-09-27
standards conflicting with this document
have to be withdrawn

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

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

This amendment was developed to implement an extra test with a kneeling child foot test probe.

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

and the European Free Trade Association and supports essential requirements of EU Directive(s).

For the relationship with EU Directive(s) see informative Annex ZZ, which is an integral part of this

document.

1 Modification to Clause 1, "Scope"
Add the following to the existing Clause 1:

"This standard covers all significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events relevant for tools

covered by this standard.

NOTE 101 Essential requirements not mentioned in Table ZZ.1 are deemed to be not applicable, because the corresponding

hazards are either not relevant for machines covered by this standard or do not require specific action by the designer.".

2 Modification to Clause 2, "Normative references"
Add the following normative reference:

"EN ISO 8295:2004, Plastics - Film and sheeting - Determination of the coefficients of friction

(ISO 8295:1995)".
3 Modification to 20.102.4.1, "Inadvertent foot access to the cutting means"
Replace the first four paragraphs with the following:
“20.102.4.1.1 General

Inadvertent access to the cutting means by the feet during operation shall be prevented, so far as

reasonably practicable by the cutting means enclosure.

Compliance is checked by the tests of 20.102.4.1.2, 20.102.4.1.3 and 20.102.4.1.4.

The tests are made with the cutting means in the most unfavourable cutting position. If the cutting

means path height is different at different cutting means speeds, the test is conducted so as to include

the extremes of cutting means height.”.
Replace the existing subclause 20.102.4.1.1 with the following:
"20.102.4.1.2 Adult foot probe test

The machine shall be placed on a hard, flat surface. The guards shall be in the normal operating position

on the cutting means enclosure and the machine support members in contact with the supporting

surface. Components of machines, such as wheels and frames, are where relevant considered as part of

the cutting means enclosure for the purpose of these tests. The tests are conducted under static

conditions.”

The foot probe of Figure 102 shall be inserted towards the cutting means around the machine’s external

enclosure. The base of the probe is held horizontally at any height and then inclined up to 15° forward or

backward from the horizontal (see Figure 102). The probe is applied around the entire machine as

described in Figure 102 until a horizontal force of 20 N maximum is reached, or until the machine’s

enclosure lifts or moves from the original position, or until contact is made with the cutting means path,

whichever occurs first.
The test probe shall not enter the path of the cutting means assembly."
Replace the existing subclause 20.102.4.1.2 with the following:
"20.102.4.1.3 Foot probe test for standing child

The machine shall be placed on a hard, flat surface. The guards shall be in the normal operating position

on the cutting means enclosure and the machine support members in contact with the supporting

surface. Components of machines, such as wheels and frames, are where relevant considered as part of

the cutting means enclosure for the purpose of these tests. The tests are conducted under static

conditions.

66 maximum traction drive speed in automatic mode during normal use with the cutting means

67 operating; and

68 — an injection tube as shown in Figure CC.1 need not be incorporated into the test surface.

69 The machine is tested by means of the foot probe shown in Figure 108. The sole of the foot probe

70 shall be constructed of a material with a 70 Shore A hardness (nominal) and a thickness of

71 (3 ± 0,5) mm. The sole of the foot probe shall be free from dust and grease. Prior to the series of tests,

72 the sole of the foot probe in Figure 108 shall be checked to ensure a dynamic coefficient of friction of

73 (0,6 ± 0,06) with respect to the same material surface in accordance with EN ISO 8295:2004.

74 The machine is operated in automatic mode with the cutting means operating. While the machine is

75 operating, the foot probe of Figure 108 is placed in each of the ten test positions shown in Figure 109,

76 as applicable to the anticipated movement of the machine, such that

77 — the foot probe is aligned with the direction of the machine’s movement with the toe pointing

78 toward the machine; and

79 — the foot probe is placed on the test surface and care is taken that foot probe movement is

80 minimised if the machine comes into contact with the foot probe;
