INTERNATIONAL ELECTROTECHNICAL COMMISSION
HAND-HELD ELECTRIC MAINS VOLTAGE
OPERATED CIRCULAR SAWS -
METHODS FOR MEASURING THE PERFORMANCE
FOREWORD

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

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

promote international cooperation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and

electronic fields. To this end and in addition to other activities, the IEC publishes International Standards.

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. The 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 the IEC on technical matters, prepared by technical committees on

which all the National Committees having a special interest therein are represented, express, as nearly as

possible, an international consensus of opinion on the subjects dealt with.

3) They have the form of recommendations for international use published in the form of standards, technical

reports or guides and they are accepted by the National Committees in that sense.

4) In order to promote international unification, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC International

Standards transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional standards. Any

divergence between the IEC Standard and the corresponding national or regional standard shall be clearly

indicated in the latter.
This International Standard has been prepared by IEC by sub-committee 59J: Hand-

held electric tools, of IEC technical committee 59: Performance of household electrical

appliances.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
DIS Report on voting
59J(CO)7 59J(CO)9

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

repo rt indicated in the above table.

HAND-HELD ELECTRIC MAINS VOLTAGE
OPERATED CIRCULAR SAWS –
METHODS FOR MEASURING THE PERFORMANCE
1 Scope and object

This International Standard applies to hand-held electrically operated circular saws,

intended for household and similar use both indoor and outdoors.

Hand-held electric motor-operated circular saws that can be mounted on a support for use

as fixed tools, without any fundamental alterations of the circular saw itself, are within the

scope of this standard.
Circular saw attachments and cut-off discs are not covered by this standard.

The object of this standard is to state and define the principal performance characteristics

of circular saws that are of interest to the user and to describe the standardized methods

for measuring these characteristics.

This standard does not deal with safety requirements nor does it prescribe limits of accep-

tance for pe rformance.

Safety requirements for hand-held electric circular saws are covered by IEC 745-2-5.

2 Normative references
The following normative documents contain provisions which, through reference in

this text, constitute provisions of this International Standard. At the time of publication of

this standard, the editions indicated were valid. All normative documents are subject to

revision, and parties to agreements based on this International Standard are encouraged

to investigate the possibility of applying the most recent editions of the normative

documents indicated below. Members of IEC and ISO maintain registers of currently valid

International Standards.
IEC 160: 1963, Standard atmospheric conditions for test purposes.

IEC 745-2-5: 1993, Safety of hand-held motor-operated electric tools - Part 2: Particular

requirements for circular saws and circular knives.
3 Definitions
For the purpose of this standard, the following definitions apply.
3.1 Terms used to designate the hand-held electric tool and its spare parts

3.1.1 hand-held electric circular saws: Hand-held electric tool intended to execute

mechanical work and so designed that the motor and the machine form an assembly that

can easily be brought to its place of operation and which is held by hand during operation.

Circular saws may also be mounted on a suppo rt .

NOTE - In this standard, "hand-held electric motor-operated circular saws" are referred to as "saws".

3.1.3 main handle:
actuating means.
Handle which can be attached to the saw for handling or safety
3.1.4 auxiliary handle:

3.1.5

3.2
Frequency assigned tot he saw by the manufacturer.
3.2.1 rated frequency:
3.2.2 rated voltage: Voltage assigned to the saw by the manufacturer.
Input at rated voltage assigned to the saw by the manufacturer.
3.2.3 rated input:
3.3 Terms used for measuring methods

Its diameter is that of the maximum size blade which can be fitted to the saw ±1 mm

as specified by the manufacturer.

Its thickness is that of the riving knife (+0,05 mm) or if no riving knife is provided:

thickness = 1,00 mm ± 0,05 mm
0 <_ 127 mm
thickness = 1,20 mm ± 0,05 mm
127 < 0 <_ 200 mm
thickness = 2,00 mm ± 0,05 mm
0 > 200 mm
c) Its flatness is:
0 <_ 127 mm flatness = 0,10 mm
127 < 0 <_ 200 mm flatness = 0,15 mm
flatness = 0,20 mm
0 > 200 mm

4.1.15 Noise level (5.15).
4.1.16 Vibration level (5.16).
4.2 General conditions for measurements
4.2.1 Ambient temperature
The room shall be maintained at 20 °C ± 5 °C according to IEC 160.
4.2.2 Voltage and frequency

The measurements shall be carried out at rated voltage with a tolerance of ±1 % and,

if applicable, at rated frequency.
Saws designed for d.c. only shall be measured with d.c.
Saws designed for a.c. and d.c. shall be measured with a.c.

Saws not marked with rated frequency shall be measured either at 50 Hz or at 60 Hz

according to usage in the country where the machine is employed.

For saws with a rated voltage range, the measurements shall be carried out at the mean

value of the voltage range if the difference between the limits of the range does not

exceed 10 % of the mean value of the voltage range.

If the difference between the limits exceeds 10 % of the mean value, the measurements

shall be carried out at both the upper and the lower limit of the range.

NOTE - If the rated voltage or the mean of the voltage range differs from the nominal voltage system of

the country concerned where the saw is to be used, measurements carried out at rated voltage or the mean

of the voltage range may be misleading for the consumer. In this case additional measurements may be

necessary.
If the test voltage differs from the rated voltage, this shall be reported.

variations, the following measurements shall be carried out on two samples:
input under no load condition;
- speed under load that gives rated input.
NOTES

1 If the values measured are within 5 % of the mean value, one of the samples can be used for the

remaining measurements.
