Appareils électrodomestiques et analogues - Sécurité - Partie 2-87: Exigences particulières pour les appareils électriques d'insensibilisation des animaux (IEC 60335-2-87:2016)

L'IEC 60335-2-87:2016 traite de la sécurité des appareils électriques d'insensibilisation des animaux dont la tension assignée n'est pas supérieure à 250 V pour les appareils monophasés et à 480 V pour les autres appareils. Les appareils alimentés par batteries et autres appareils à alimentation électrique en courant continu relèvent du champ d'application de la présente norme. Les appareils à double alimentation, fonctionnant sur le réseau ou par batteries, sont considérés, lorsqu'ils fonctionnent en mode batterie, comme des appareils alimentés par batteries. La présente norme est applicable aux appareils électriques d'insensibilisation des animaux pour usage industriel ou commercial, destinés à être utilisés dans des fermes ou dans des endroits où ils peuvent constituer une source de danger pour le public. Dans la mesure du possible, la présente norme traite des dangers ordinaires présentés par ces types d'appareils. Exemples d'appareils électriques d'insensibilisation des animaux relevant du domaine d'application de la présente norme utilisés pour insensibiliser: - des bovidés, tels que bovins, veaux, vaches, génisses et taureaux; - des ovins, tels que moutons et agneaux; - des caprins, tels que les chèvres; - des cervidés, tels que les cerfs; - des solipèdes, tels que les chevaux, les ânes et les mules; - des volailles, telles que les poulets, les dindes et les pintades; - des porcins, tels que les porcs; - des animaux à fourrure, tels que les renards, les chinchillas, les lapins et les opossums; - des mustélidés, tels que les visons et les putoiset autres ruminants, tels que les chameaux. Les types d'appareils électriques d'insensibilisation des animaux suivants sont couverts par la présente norme: manuels, semi-automatiques et automatiques. Cette troisième édition annule et remplace la deuxième édition parue en 2002, y compris son Amendement 1 (2007) et son Amendement 2 (2012). Cette édition constitue une révision technique. Les modifications majeures de cette édition par rapport à la deuxième édition de l'IEC 60335-2-87 sont les suivantes (les modifications mineures ne sont pas indiquées): - Le symbole de mise en garde ISO 7010-W012 a été introduit (7.1, 7.6, 7.12, 7.14). - La référence à l'IEC 60068-2-32 a été remplacée par la référence à l'IEC 60068-2-31 (21.1). - Les exigences complémentaires concernant les appareils d'insensibilisation alimentés par batteries ont été transférées à l'Annexe S (5.8.1, 7.1, 7.8, 7.12, 11.5, 16, 22.102, 25.5, 25.7, 25.20, 25.23, 25.101, 26.5). Elle a été établie sur la base de la cinquième édition (2010) de cette norme. L'attention des Comités nationaux est attirée sur le fait que les fabricants d'appareils et les organismes d'essai peuvent avoir besoin d'une période transitoire après la publication d'une nouvelle publication IEC, ou d'une publication amendée ou révisée, pour fabriquer des produits conformes aux nouvelles exigences et pour adapter leurs équipements aux nouveaux essais ou aux essais révisés. Le comité recommande que le contenu de la présente norme soit entériné au niveau national au plus tôt 12 mois ou au plus tard 36 mois après la date de publication.

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.

This part of International Standard IEC 60335 has been prepared by sub-committee 61H:

Safety of electrically-operated farm appliances, of IEC technical committee 61: Safety of

household and similar electrical appliances.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2002 including its

Amendment 1 (2007) and its Amendment 2 (2012). This edition constitutes a technical

revision.

The principal changes in this edition as compared with the second edition of IEC 60335-2-87

are as follows (minor changes are not listed):
• Warning sign ISO 7010-W012 has been introduced (7.1, 7.6, 7.12, 7.14).

• Reference to IEC 60068-2-32 has been replaced by reference to IEC 60068-2-31 (21.1).

---------------------- Page: 9 ----------------------

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 2-87: Particular requirements
for electrical animal stunning equipment
1 Scope
This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following.

This part of IEC 60335 deals with the safety of electric animal-stunning equipment the

rated voltage of which is not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for

other appliances.

NOTE 101 Battery-operated appliances and other d.c. supplied appliances are within the scope of this standard.

Dual supply appliances, either mains-supplied or battery-operated, are regarded as battery-operated appliances

when operated in the battery mode.

This standard is applicable to electric animal-stunning equipment for industrial or

commercial use, for use on farms or for use in areas where they may be a source of danger to

the public.

So far as is practical, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by these types

of appliances.

NOTE 102 Examples of electric animal-stunning equipment within the scope of this standard are those used

to stun:
– bovines such as cattle, calves, cows, heifers and bulls;
– ovines such as sheep and lambs;
– caprines such as goats;
– cervids such as deer;
– solipeds such as horses, donkeys and mules;
– birds such as chickens, turkeys and guinea fowl;
– porcines such as pigs;
– fur animals such as foxes, chinchilla, rabbits and possums;
– mustelids such as mink and polecats;
– other ruminants such as camels.

NOTE 103 The following types of electric animal-stunning equipment are covered by this standard:

– manual, semi-automatic and automatic.
NOTE 104 Attention is drawn to the fact that:

– for electric animal-stunning equipment intended to be used on board ships, 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;

– in many countries, additional requirements are specified concerning the humane slaughter of animals.

NOTE 105 This standard does not apply to:

– 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);
– electric fence energizers (see IEC 60335-2-76);
– electric fishing machines (see IEC 60335-2-86);
