Part 2-1: Particular requirements for hand-held drills and impact drills
AMENDMENT 1
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 document may be the subject of patent

rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

19.102.1 General
Replace the existing text of the last paragraph with the following new text:

Compliance is checked by the tests specified in 19.102.2 to 19.102.4 and by the calculations

in Figures 104 to 107.
19.102.2 Test equipment

Replace the existing text of the first paragraph, item a) and item b) with the following new

text:

The test equipment used for the test of 19.102.4 shall meet the following requirements a) to

g):

a) The torque transducer and the rotational angle sensor shall continuously monitor the

torque and the rotation produced by the output spindle of the tool during the test of

19.102.4.

b) The output of the torque transducer shall be connected to an oscilloscope or other data

acquisition equipment capable of displaying the torque vs. time graph of the tool’s output

during the test of 19.102.4.
19.102.3 Test procedure
Insert the following new Subclause 19.2.103 before "19.102.3 Test procedure".
19.102.3 Assessment to determine tool configuration

This assessment is only applicable for tools that employ an electronic circuit(s) that affects

the output torque in the test of 19.102.4.

Prior to each measurement, the sample is operated for at least 5 min at no-load. After each

5 min operation period, the measurement shall be conducted within 20 min.
All measurements are made with the tool sample running in the forward position.
The sample is connected to the measurement fixture and is fixed during the test.

For tools with a soft start function, the test of 19.102.4 through steps 1) and 2) is conducted

on the sample with the soft start function enabled and then repeated with the soft start

function disabled. If analysis shows that the tool will not operate with the soft start function

disabled, then the test with the soft start function disabled is not conducted. For tools

employing electronically commutated motors, the configuration that results in the greatest

output torque shall be used for the test of 19.102.4. For tools other than those employing

electronically commutated motors, the configuration that results in the greatest output torque

shall be used for the following test.

For tools other than those employing electronically commutated motors, when all functions

affecting the test value of the output torque, except for any soft start function, are not

evaluated as SCFs according to 18.8 (e.g. current limit and stall detection), the tool

configuration for the test of 19.102.4 shall be the configuration that results in the greatest

output torque for one trial of the test of 19.102.4 through steps 1) and 2) as specified below:

– all functions affecting the output torque enabled; or

– each function not evaluated as an SCF affecting the output torque disabled one at a time.

Renumber and replace 19.102.3 as follows.
19.102.4 Test procedure
If applicable, the sample is configured as specified in 19.102.3.

Prior to the test, the sample is operated for at least 5 min at no-load. After the 5 min operation

period, the test shall be conducted within 20 min.
All measurements are made with the tool sample running in the forward position.

The sample is connected to the measurement fixture and is fixed during the test. The

measurement is conducted by using seven trial measurements of the same sample, each trial

conducted as follows:

1) Energize the tool to the full "on" position as quickly as possible and allow the joint to be

tightened until it comes to a complete stop.
2) Record the measured output torque.

a) For tools without a mechanical overload clutch, the output torque is determined by

either i) or ii):

i) For signals that are stable for a minimum of 2 ms after the initial peak (if present),

the output torque value is determined by measuring over the stable region for an
interval T not exceeding 100 ms. If there is variation during this interval, the
average value shall be used. See Figure 108.

ii) For signals that are not stable for a minimum of 2 ms after the initial peak, the

output torque value shall be the RMS value of the signal over the rotation from off

until peak torque is achieved. See Figure 109.

NOTE 101 Torque signals can exhibit a transient peak with a relatively stable signal following the peak.

The stable signal can exhibit relatively slow change due to, for example, heating of the windings. The

stable signal can also exhibit periodic signal variation due to torque ripple. Averaging over this stable

period provides a meaningful torque value. The transient peak and the stable region are not always

present.
b) For tools with a mechanical overload clutch:

The output torque is determined by the peak value of the first peak that occurs after

starting the trial. Later peaks, even if they appear to have greater values, are not taken

into account. See Figure 110.

3) Before the next trial, disconnect the spindle from the test fixture and operate the tool

under no-load for a minimum of 3 s. Allow the tool to cool for a minimum of 2 min before

the next trial.

M is computed as the average of five of the measurements from each of the seven trials,

with the highest and lowest measurement eliminated. The standard deviation of the five

measurements shall also be computed and shall be less than 5 %. If it is not, then the fixture

shall be adjusted to achieve the required repeatability.

NOTE 102 It is recognized that disabling functions that affect the torque can result in a test where the tool is

permanently impaired after the test.

accessory mounted, all speed setting devices adjusted to the highest value.

NOTE 101 Experimental investigations have shown that the noise emission values of drills, except for impact

drills and diamond core drills, at no-load and under load are very similar. For reasons of simplification, the noise

emission is therefore measured at no-load.

For impact drills, the speed setting shall be that recommended by the manufacturer for an

8 mm bit for drilling into concrete.

Impact drills are tested under load as shown in Figure I.101 and in accordance with the
