Surface cleaning appliances - Part 2: Dry vacuum cleaners for household or similar use - Methods for measuring the performance

IEC 62885-2:2016 is applicable for measurements of the performance of dry vacuum cleaners for household use in or under conditions similar to those in households. The purpose of this standard is to specify essential performance characteristics of dry vacuum cleaners which are of interest to users and to describe methods for measuring these characteristics. This standard is not intended for cordless vacuum cleaners. For safety requirements, reference is made to IEC 60335-1 and IEC 60335-2-2. This first edition of IEC 62885-2 cancels and replaces IEC 60312-1:2010 and Amendment 1:2011. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC 60312-1:2010+AMD1:2011.
a) New terms and definitions have been added in Clause 3.
b) Subclauses 4.2 and 4.6 have been improved for better understanding.
