Part 7: Dry cleaning robots for household or similar use –
Methods for measuring the performance

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


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.

1 Scope
Add the following new paragraph before the last paragraph.

Due to the nature of the way this product operates in the home, comparisons with other types

of surface cleaning appliances (e.g. dry vacuum cleaners) should not be made unless otherwise

indicated. The cleaning performance methods, in particular, are only used to make comparisons

with other dry cleaning robots and not with manually operated vacuum cleaner products. Test bed
Replace the subclause with the following.
Refer to 9.3.

Exception: remove all legs (table, chair, and sofa legs). Replace the carpet with a test carpet

of the same type as defined in 9.1.2 except in terms of length and width.
9.1.2 Carpet
Replace the subclause with the following. General

The test bed is identical to that defined in 9.1.1, except that the floor is covered with test carpet.

© IEC 2022 Test carpets

The preferred test carpet for international testing and inter-laboratory comparative testing is the

Wilton type carpet. There are three additional carpets of different quality related to cleaning

performance that may be used. These carpets in verified versions are available from suppliers

listed on the IEC website (see Annex D). Specifications on these carpet types are given for

guidance in IEC TS 62885-1.

Category A, B and C test carpets are known to be well controlled and managed in terms of

quality for repeatability and reproducibility for tests of manually operated cleaning devices.

The repeatability and reproducibility of tests with Category A, B and C test carpets for a dry

cleaning robot have not yet been verified, but their assessment is under consideration.

NOTE Category A, B and C test carpets are included for potential use because these carpe
