Household and similar electrical appliances - Safety - Particular requirements for commercial electric spin extractors

This Clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following: This European Standard deals with the safety of electrical operated spin extractors intended to be used by trained users in i.e. hotels, hospitals, factories, in light industry and on farms. It also covers spin extractors which are 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 deals with the common hazards presented by spin extractors 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 spin extractors safely without supervision or instruction, b) children playing with the spin extractors. Attention is drawn to the fact that: – for commercial electric spin extractors intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or aircraft, additional requirements might 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. This standard does not apply to: – industrial laundry machinery (EN ISO 10472-2), – spin extractors 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” as used in Part 1 is to be read as “Spin extractors intended for commercial use”.

Appareils électrodomestiques et analogues - Sécurité - Règles particulières pour les machines à laver le linge à usage collectif

L’Article de la Partie 1 est remplacé par l’article ci-après: La présente Norme Européenne traite de la sécurité des essoreuses centrifuges électriques destinées à être utilisées par des usagers avertis, par exemple, dans des hôtels, des hôpitaux, chez des artisans et dans des fermes. Elle couvre également les essoreuses centrifuges déclarées pour un usage collectif dans des lieux publics et utilisées par des usagers non avertis, par exemple, dans des laveries automatiques et des buanderies mises à la disposition commune des usagers. Leur tension assignée n’est pas supérieure à 250 V pour les appareils monophasés et à 480 V pour les autres appareils. La présente norme traite des dangers ordinaires présentés par les essoreuses centrifuges et auxquels sont confrontés tous les individus. Cependant, cette norme ne tient pas compte en général: a) des personnes (y compris des enfants) dont: 1) les capacités physiques, sensorielles ou mentales; ou 2) le manque d’expérience et de connaissance les empêchent d’utiliser les essoreuses centrifuges en toute sécurité sans surveillance ou instruction; b) de l’utilisation des essoreuses centrifuges comme jouet par des enfants. L’attention est attirée sur le fait que: – pour les essoreuses centrifuges électriques à usage collectif destinées à être utilisées dans des véhicules ou à bord de navires ou d’avions, des exigences supplémentaires peuvent être nécessaires; – dans de nombreux pays, des exigences supplémentaires sont spécifiées par les organismes nationaux de la santé, par les organismes nationaux responsables de la protection des travailleurs, par les organismes nationaux responsables de l’alimentation en eau et par des organismes similaires. La présente norme ne s’applique pas: – aux machines de blanchisserie industrielle (EN ISO 10472-2); – aux essoreuses centrifuges destinées à être utilisées dans des locaux présentant des conditions particulières comme par exemple la présence d’une atmosphère corrosive ou explosive (poussières, vapeur ou gaz). Pour les besoins de la présente norme, le terme « appareil » utilisé dans la Partie 1 doit être lu comme « essoreuses centrifuges destinées à un usage collectif ».

Gospodinjski in podobni električni aparati - Varnost - Posebne zahteve za komercialne električne centrifuge

To točko 1. dela nadomešča naslednje besedilo:
Ta mednarodni standard opisuje varnost električnih centrifug, ki naj bi jih uporabljali strokovno usposobljeni uporabniki, npr. v hotelih, bolnišnicah, tovarnah, lahki industriji in na kmetijah. Pokriva tudi centrifuge, 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 evropski standard obravnava splošna tveganja, ki jih za vse ljudi predstavljajo centrifuge. 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 centrifug brez nadzora ali navodil,
b) otrok, ki se igrajo s centrifugami.
Upoštevati je treba tudi:
– da so za komercialne električne centrifuge, ki so namenjene 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.
Ta evropski standard se ne uporablja za:
c) industrijske pralne stroje (EN ISO 10472-2),
d) centrifuge, ki so namenjene 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 »centrifuge, namenjene komercialni uporabi«.

EN 50569:2013 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 spin extractor 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 spin extractors 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 spin extractors. A commercial electric spin extractor 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 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. SIST EN 50569:2014
