Household and similar electrical appliances - Safety - Part 2-11: Particular requirements for tumble dryers

IEC 60335-2-11:2008 deals with the safety of electric tumble dryers intended for household and similar purposes. The rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances. This standard also applies to the drying function of washing machines having a drying cycle, as well as the safety of tumble dryers that use a refrigerating systemincorporating sealed motor-compressors, for drying textile material. These appliances may use flammable refrigerants. The major changes in this edition as compared with the sixth edition are as follows: aligns the text with IEC 60335-1, Ed 4, and its Amendments 1 and 2; some notes have been converted to normative text (7.101, 11.8, 20.102, 20.103 and Annex AA).

Sicherheit elektrischer Geräte für den Hausgebrauch und ähnliche Zwecke - Teil 2-11: Besondere Anforderungen für Trommeltrockner

Appareils électrodomestiques et analogues - Sécurité - Partie 2-11: Règles particulières pour les sèche-linge à tambour

La CEI 60335-2-11:2008 traite de la sécurité des sèche-linge à tambour électriques pour usages domestiques et analogues dont la tension assignée n'est pas supérieure à 250 V pour les appareils monophasés et à 480 V pour les autres appareils. La présente norme s'applique aussi à la fonction séchage des machines à laver ayant un cycle de séchage et traite également de la sécurité des sèche-linge à tambour utilisant un système de réfrigération à motocompresseur hermétique pour sécher le linge. Ces appareils peuvent utiliser des fluides frigorigènes inflammables. Les principales modifications de la présente édition par rapport à la sixième édition sont les suivantes: alignement du texte avec la CEI 60335-1, Ed 4, et ses Amendements 1 et 2; conversion de certaines notes en exigences (7.101,11.8, 20.102, 20.103 et Annexe AA).

Gospodinjski in podobni električni aparati - Varnost - 2-11. del: Posebne zahteve za bobenske sušilnike (IEC 60335-2-11:2008)

Ta klavzula 1. dela je nadomeščena z naslednjim: Ta mednarodni standard obravnava varnost električnih bobenskih sušilnikov za gospodinjstvo in podobne namene, katerih napetost je manjša od 250 V za enofazne aparate in od 480 V za ostale aparate. Ta standard obravnava tudi varnost bobenskih sušilnikov, ki uporabljajo hladilni sistem, kateri vsebuje zaprte gnane kompresorje za sušenje tekstilnih materialov. Ti aparati lahko uporabljajo vnetljiva hladilna sredstva. Dodatne zahteve za te aparate so podane v Dodatku BB. Aparati, ki niso namenjeni za običajno rabo v gospodinjstvu, vendar so kljub temu lahko vir nevarnosti za javnost, kot naprave, namenjene uporabi laikov v trgovinah, v lahki industriji in na kmetijah, spadajo v področje uporabe tega standardu. V kolikor je izvedljivo, se ta standard ukvarja s splošnimi nevarnostmi, ki jih predstavljajo aparati in na katere so naletele osebe doma ali v okolici doma. Vendar na splošno ne upošteva – oseb (vključno z otroki), katerim – pomanjkanje fizičnih, čutilnih ali duševnih zmožnosti ali – pomanjkanje izkušenj in znanja preprečuje varno uporabo aparata brez nadzora ali navodil; - igranje otrok z aparatom.

Endorsement notice
The text of the International Standard IEC 60335-2-11:2008 was approved by CENELEC as a European
Standard with agreed common modifications as given below.
15 Moisture resistance
p 15.2 Add before the last paragraph:
For appliances having a working surface, the test is repeated with the appliance tilted at an angle of 2° in
relation to the position of normal use in the direction which is likely to be the most unfavourable.
The lid of top loading appliances is considered as a working surface if it is flat enough to put something
19 Abnormal operation
Add the following new subclause:
19.Z101  The appliance is supplied at rated voltage and operated under normal operation.
Any fault condition or unexpected operation that may be applied in normal use is introduced.
NOTE 1  Examples of fault conditions and unexpected operations are:
– the programmer stopping in any position;
– disconnection and reconnection of one or more phases of the supply during any part of the programme;
– open-circuiting or short-circuiting of components.
NOTE 2  In general, tests are limited to the fault conditions that may be expected to give the most unfavourable results. The
simulation of component faults is limited to those that could expose the user to a hazard.
NOTE 3  If the appliance stops at any particular point in the programme, the test with that fault condition is considered to be ended.
NOTE 4  The fault condition with
– thermal controls short-circuited is covered by 19.4;
– motor capacitors short-circuited or open-circuited is covered by 19.7.
24 Components
24.1.3  Addition:
The number of cycles of operation for the switching device in door interlocks is 30 000.
Add the following new subclause:
24.Z101  Switches complying with IEC 61058-1 are not short-circuited during the tests of Clause 19. The
tests of IEC 61058-1 are carried out under the conditions occurring in the appliance.
