Household and similar electrical appliances - Safety - Particular requirements for commercial electric washing machines

This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following: This European Standard deals with the safety of electrical operated washing machines intended to be used by trained users in e.g. hotels, hospitals, factories, in light industry and on farms. It also covers washing machines declared for commercial use in public areas and operated by lay persons e.g. in laundrettes, communal laundry rooms. Their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single phase and 480 V for others. This standard also covers washing machines making use of other energy sources. It does not cover requirements for these other energy sources or compressed air. However the influence of these other energy sources on the machines is covered. These washing machines are designed to be connected to hot and/or cold water supply. Washing machines making use of steam or hot water for heating purposes are also within the scope of this standard. This standard deals with the common hazards presented by washing machines that are encountered by all persons. However, in general, it does not take into account: a) persons (including children) whose: 1) physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or 2) lack of experience and knowledge, prevents them from using the washing machine safely without supervision or instruction; b) children playing with the washing machine. Attention is drawn to the fact that: – for commercial electric washing machines 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, – for commercial electric washing machines having a drying function, EN 50570 (commercial electric tumble dryers) is also applicable. This standard does not apply to: – industrial laundry machinery (EN ISO 10472-2), – washing machines intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas). For the purpose of this standard, the term “appliance” is to be read as “washing machine intended for commercial use.

Ta mednarodni standard opisuje varnost električnih pralnih strojev, ki naj bi jih uporabljali strokovno usposobljeni uporabniki, npr. v hotelih, bolnišnicah, tovarnah, lahki industriji in na kmetijah. Zajema tudi pralne stroje, namenjene komercialni uporabi na javnih mestih, ki jih uporabljajo nestrokovne osebe, npr. v javnih pralnicah. Njihova nazivna napetost ne sme presegati 250 V za enofazne naprave in 480 V za vse druge naprave. Ta standard zajema tudi pralne stroje, ki uporabljajo druge vire energije. Ne zajema zahtev za te druge vire energije ali stisnjen zrak. Zajema pa vpliv teh drugih virov energije na stroje. Pralni stroji so zasnovani tako, da se priključijo na oskrbo z vročo in/ali mrzlo vodo. Ta standard zajema tudi pralne stroje, ki uporabljajo paro ali vročo vodo za potrebe ogrevanja. Ta evropski standard obravnava splošna tveganja, ki jih za vse ljudi predstavljajo pralni stroji. Vendar na splošno ne upošteva:
a) oseb (tudi otrok), ki zaradi:
1) fizičnih, senzoričnih ali umskih sposobnosti oziroma
2)pomanjkanja izkušenj in znanja,
ne morejo varno uporabljati pralnih strojev brez nadzora ali navodil;
b) otrok, ki se igrajo s pralnim strojem.
Upoštevati je treba tudi:
– da so za komercialne električne pralne stroje, ki so namenjeni za uporabo v vozilih ali na krovu ladij ali letal, morda potrebne dodatne zahteve,
– da v številnih državah nacionalni zdravstveni organi, nacionalni organi, odgovorni za varstvo pri delu, nacionalni organi za oskrbo z vodo ter drugi podobni organi določajo dodatne zahteve,
– za komercialne električne pralne stroje s sušilno funkcijo velja tudi standard EN 50570 (komercialni električni sušilni stroji).
Ta evropski standard se ne uporablja za:
c) industrijske pralne stroje (EN ISO 10472-2),
d) pralne stroje, ki so namenjeni za uporabo na lokacijah, kjer veljajo posebne razmere, kot je prisotnost korozivne ali eksplozivne atmosfere (prah, hlapi ali plin). V tem standardu izraz »naprava«, kot je uporabljen v 1. delu, pomeni »pralne stroje, namenjene komercialni uporabi«.

Introduction

This European Standard has been prepared to provide a means of conforming to essential safety

requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. Other requirements and other EU Directives may be

applicable to the machines within the scope of this standard.

This standard is a product family standard dealing with the safety of commercial electric washing machines

and takes precedence over horizontal and generic standards covering the same subject.

This standard recognises the level of protection against hazards such as electrical, mechanical, thermal, fire

and radiation of commercial electric washing machines when operated as in normal use taking into account

the manufacturer's instructions. It also covers any reasonably foreseeable misuse of the machinery and

takes into account the way in which electromagnetic phenomena can affect the safe operation of commercial

electric washing machines.

A commercial electric washing machine 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.

This standard takes into account the requirements of HD 60364-1 as far as possible so that there is

compatibility with the wiring rules when the machinery is connected to the supply mains. However, national

wiring rules may differ.

1 Scope
This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following:

This European Standard deals with the safety of electrical operated washing machines intended to be used

by trained users in e.g. hotels, hospitals, factories, in light industry and on farms. It also covers washing

machines declared for commercial use in public areas and operated by lay persons e.g. in laundrettes,

communal laundry rooms. Their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single phase and 480 V for

others.

This standard also covers washing machines making use of other energy sources. It does not cover

requirements for these other energy sources or compressed air. However the influence of these other energy

sources on the machines is covered.

These washing machines are designed to be connected to hot and/or cold water supply.

Washing machines making use of steam or hot water for heating purposes are also within the scope of this

standard.

This standard deals with the common hazards presented by washing machines that are encountered by all

persons. However, in general, it does not take into account:
a) persons (including children) whose:
1) physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or
2) lack of experience and knowledge,

prevents them from using the washing machine safely without supervision or instruction;

b) children playing with the washing machine.
Attention is drawn to the fact that:

– for commercial electric washing machines 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,

– for commercial electric washing machines having a drying function, EN 50570 (commercial electric

tumble dryers) is also applicable.
This European Standard does not apply to:
c) industrial laundry machinery (EN ISO 10472-2),

d) washing machines intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as

the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas).

For the purpose of this standard, the term “appliance” is to be read as “washing machine intended for

commercial use.
