SAFETY REQUIREMENTS FOR ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT
FOR MEASUREMENT, CONTROL, AND LABORATORY USE –
Part 2-130: Particular requirements for equipment intended
to be used in educational establishments by children
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 61010-2-130 has been prepared by IEC Technical Committee 66:

Safety of measuring, control and laboratory equipment.
This first edition cancels and replaces IEC TS 62850, published in 2013.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC TS 62850:

a) marking and documentation requirements;

as Part 1.

This document supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 61010-1 to convert

that publication into the IEC standard: Particular requirements for equipment intended to be

used in educational establishments by children.

Where a particular subclause of Part 1 is not mentioned in this document, that subclause

applies as far as is reasonable. Where this document states "addition", "modification",

"replacement", or "deletion", the relevant requirement, test specification or note in Part 1

should be adapted accordingly.
In this standard, the following print types are used:
• requirements: in roman type;
• NOTES: in smaller roman type;
• conformity assessment and test: in italic type;

• terms defined used throughout this standard which have been defined in Clause 3: SMALL

ROMAN CAPITALS.

Subclauses, figures, tables and notes which are additional to those in Part 1 are numbered

starting from 101. Additional annexes are lettered starting from AA and additional list items

are lettered from aa).

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

stability date indicated on the IEC website under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data related to

the specific document. At this date, the document will be

INTRODUCTION

This document specifies particular safety requirements for equipment and accessories

intended to be used in educational establishment by PUPIL OPERATORS. PUPIL OPERATORS are

for the sake of this document, children between the ages of 3 years and 16 years operating

electrical equipment under supervision of a RESPONSIBLE BODY.

Equipment and accessories are considered intended for use in educational establishments,

when it is either explicitly stated in accompanying documentation, or where sales and

marketing materials indicate such intended use. This does not limit the use of other

equipment for use in educational establishments, however equipment and accessories not

evaluated to the requirements of this document may need additional precautions and

attestation when used by PUPIL OPERATORS.

Readily predictable behaviour of PUPIL OPERATORS can include poking objects and materials

associated with equipment and accessories, which poses additional challenges for

determination of reasonably foreseeable misuse. Consequently, more stringent criteria for

access to potentially hazardous parts are required for educational establishment equipment

than for general laboratory use.

Moreover, the maximum temperatures of parts that may be touched by children should be

lower than for equipment handled only by adults. Ergonomic considerations and mechanical

risks need to be addressed with regard to the anthropomorphic dimensions of children instead

of adults.

This document includes the following significant changes with respect to Part 1, as well as

other changes:

a) a marking is added to indicate to the RESPONSIBLE BODY that the equipment is intended to

be used by PUPIL OPERATORS under supervision;

b) accessibility requirements are enhanced to take into account the propensity of children to

insert foreign objects wherever they can;

c) temperature limits have been decreased to take into account the greater sensitivity of a

child's skin;

d) mechanical access dimensions have been reduced to take into account the smaller

dimensions of a child's body;
e) limits for non-collimated optical radiation have been introduced;
f) limits for ionizing radiation have been reduced;
g) small detachable parts below certain dimensions have been prohibited;

h) manufacturers are required to consider the general unpredictability of the behaviour of

PUPIL OPERATORS.
