Surface cleaning appliances - Part 9: Floor treatment machines with or without traction drive, for commercial use - Methods for measuring the performance

IEC 62885-9:2019 lists the characteristic performance parameters for walk-behind and ride-on floor scrubbers and sweepers and other floor cleaning machines in accordance with IEC 60335-2-72:2016.
The intent is to serve the manufacturers in describing parameters for their manuals and their literature. This may include all or some of the parameters listed in this definition document.
This first edition of IEC 62885-9 cancels and replaces IEC 62826:2014 and constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC 62826:2014
a) reference to a dated version of IEC 60335-2-72 to ensure consistency between the two standards;
b) a new calculation for the nominal current consumption in 22.1;
c) a new calculation for the maximum net run-time of commercial floor treatment machines in 22.2;
d) update of the Bibliography.

Appareils de nettoyage de surface - Partie 9: Machines de traitements des sols avec ou sans commande de dispositif de déplacement, à usage commercial - Méthodes de mesure de l'aptitude à la fonction

L'IEC 62885-9:2019 répertorie les paramètres de performances caractéristiques des brosseuses et balayeuses de sol à conducteur à pied et à conducteur porté, et d'autres machines de nettoyage des sols conformément à l'IEC 60335-2-72:2016.
Elle a pour objet de présenter aux fabricants les paramètres indiqués dans leurs manuels et documentations. Il peut s'agir de tout ou partie des paramètres figurant dans ce document de définition.
Cette première édition de l'IEC 62885-9 annule et remplace l'IEC 62826 publiée en 2014. Cette édition constitue une révision technique. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l’édition précédente:
a) référence à une version datée de l'IEC 60335-2-72 afin d'assurer la cohérence entre les deux Normes;
b) un nouveau calcul de la consommation de courant nominal en 22.1;
c) un nouveau calcul du temps de fonctionnement maximal net en 22.2;
d) mise à jour de la Bibliographie.

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.

International Standard IEC 62885-9 has been prepared by subcommittee SC 59F: Surface

cleaning appliances, of IEC technical committee TC 59: Performance of household and similar

electrical appliances.

This first edition of IEC 62885-9 cancels and replaces IEC 62826:2014 and constitutes a

technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC

62826:2014

a) reference to a dated version of IEC 60335-2-72 to ensure consistency between the two

standards;
b) a new calculation for the nominal current consumption in 22.1;
c) a new calculation for the maximum net run-time of commercial floor treatment
machines in 22.2;
d) update of the Bibliography.

The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
CDV Report on voting
59F/359/CDV 59F/371/RVC

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

A list of all parts in the IEC 62885 series, published under the general title Surface cleaning

appliances, can be found on the IEC website.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

the stability date indicated on the IEC web site under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data

related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,

3.1.1
pad

cleaning tool of round, oval or other shape, attached to a scrubber in order to clean the

surface (floor) by abrasive rotations

Note 1 to entry: It consists of a coarse or fine synthetic membrane. The abrasiveness can be recognized by the

colour. The structure (open/closed) determines the suitability for high/low speeds.

3.1.2
brush

cleaning tool of round, oval or other shape, attached to a scrubber in order to clean the

surface (floor) by abrasive rotations

Note 1 to entry: It consists of natural or synthetic fibres of different kinds of hardness fixed in a holder. The

hardness is subject to the tasks to be executed, such as scrubbing, polishing or shampooing.

3.1.3
broom

cleaning tool of round shape, attached to a sweeper in order to clean the surface (floor)

Note 1 to entry: Regarding the automatic cleaning brooms, distinction can be made between the main broom

(main cylindrical brush) and the side broom. The main broom is located normally close to the hopper. The bristles

of the main broom are normally arranged as straight, spiral or spiral-vee lines of
