SAFETY REQUIREMENTS FOR ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT
FOR MEASUREMENT, CONTROL, AND LABORATORY USE –
Part 2-011: Particular requirements for REFRIGERATING EQUIPMENT
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 61010-2-011 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 66:

Safety of measuring, control and laboratory equipment.

It has the status of a group safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104.

The text of this standard is based on the following documents:

A list of all parts of the IEC 61010 series, under the general title, Safety requirements for

electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use, may be found on the IEC

website.

IEC 61010-2-011 is to be used in conjunction with the latest edition of IEC 61010-1. It was

established on the basis of the third edition (2010) of IEC 61010-1.

This Part 2-011 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 61010-1 so as to

convert that publication into the IEC standard: Particular requirements for REFRIGERATING

EQUIPMENT.

Where a particular subclause of Part 1 is not mentioned in this Part 2, that subclause applies

as far as is reasonable. Where this part states “addition”, “modification”, “replacement”, or

“deletion”, the relevant requirement, test specification, or note in Part 1 should be adapted

accordingly.
In this standard:
1) the following print types are used:
– requirements and definitions: in roman type;
– NOTES: in smaller roman type;
– conformity and tests: in italic type;
– terms used throughout this standard which have been defined in Clause 3: SMALL
ROMAN CAPITALS.

2) 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.

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

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

related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

IMPORTANT – The 'colour inside' logo on the cover page of this publication indicates

that it contains colours which are considered to be useful for the correct

understanding of its contents. Users should therefore print this document using a

INTRODUCTION

This standard, in conjunction with Part 2-010 and Part 2-012, addresses the specific HAZARDS

associated with the heating and cooling of materials by equipment which are segregated as

follows:
IEC 61010-2-010 specifically addresses the HAZARDS associated with equipment
incorporating heating systems.
IEC 61010-2-011 specifically addresses the HAZARDS associated with equipment
incorporating REFRIGERATING SYSTEMS.
IEC 61010-2-012 specifically addresses the HAZARDS associated with equipment
incorporating both heating and REFRIGERATING SYSTEMS that interact
with each other such that the combined heating and cooling system
yield additional or more severe HAZARDS for the two systems than if
treated separately. It also addresses the HAZARDS associated with the
treatment of materials by other factors like irradiation, excessive
humidity, CO and mechanical movement.
Guidance for the application of the correct Part 2 standard(s)

When the equipment includes only a material heating system, and no REFRIGERATING SYSTEM

or other environmental factors apply, then Part 2-010 applies without needing Part 2-011 or

Part 2-012. Similarly, when the equipment includes only a REFRIGERATING SYSTEM, and no

material heating system or other environmental factors apply, then Part 2-011 applies without

needing Part 2-010 or Part 2-012. However, when the equipment incorporates both a material

heating system, and a REFRIGERATING SYSTEM or the materials being treated in the intended

application introduce significant heat into the REFRIGERATING SYSTEM, a determination should

be made whether the interaction between the two systems will generate additional or more

severe HAZARDS than if the systems were evaluated separately (application temperature, see

flow chart for selection process). If the interaction of the heating and cooling functions yields

no additional or more severe HAZARDS then both Part 2-010 and Part 2-011 apply for their

respective functions. Conversely, if additional or more severe HAZARDS results from the

combining of the heating and cooling function, or the equipment incorporates additional

material treatment factors then Part 2-012 applies but not Part 2-010 or Part 2-011.

What HAZARDS are applicable for a REFRIGERATING SYSTEM?

The typical HAZARDS for a REFRIGERATING SYSTEM (see Figure 101) consisting of a motor-

compressor, a condenser, an expansion device and an evaporator include but are not limited

to:

– The excess of temperature of the low-pressure side (return temperature) to the motor-

compressor is higher than admissible. A motor-compressor incorporates a refrigerant

cooled motor and it should be established that the maximum temperatures of low-pressure

side under least favorable condition do not exceed the insulation RATINGS within the motor.

– The excess of pressure of the low-pressure side at the inlet to the motor-compressor is

higher than admissible. The housing of the motor-compressor is exposed to this pressure

and so the design RATING of the motor-compressor housing should accommodate the

worst case pressures whilst providing the correct safety margin for a pressure vessel.

– The excess of temperature of the high-pressure side to the condenser is higher than

admissible. The temperatures of the high-pressure side under the most unfavorable

conditions may present a temperature HAZARD if the OPERATOR is exposed, or an electrical

HAZARD if insulation is degraded.

IEC 61010-2-011:2016 © IEC 2016 – 7 –

– The excess of pressure of the high-pressure side to the condenser is higher than

admissible. The refrigerant components downstream of the motor-compressor up to the

expansion device are exposed to this pressure and so the design RATING of these

components should accommodate the worst case pressures whilst providing the correct

safety margin for a pressure vessel.

– The maximum application temperatures, where the heat is being extracted from, may

impact the maximum temperature of the low-pressure side to the motor-compressor as

well as present a temperature HAZARD if the OPERATOR is exposed, or an electrical HAZARD

if insulation is degraded. Whether this application temperature is derived from an integral

heating function of the device or from the heat dissipated from the material being cooled,

the impact under worst case conditions should be evaluated.

– The current draw of the equipment should be established when including the worst case

running conditions of the REFRIGERATING SYSTEM including any defrost cycles that may

apply.

The worst case conditions should be determined for the equipment and will include both the

least favorable NORMAL USE conditions as well as the most unfavorable testing results under

SINGLE FAULT CONDITIONS.

SAFETY REQUIREMENTS FOR ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT
FOR MEASUREMENT, CONTROL, AND LABORATORY USE –
Part 2-011: Particular requirements for REFRIGERATING EQUIPMENT
1 Scope and object
This clause of Part 1 is applicable, except as follows:
1.1.1 Equipment included in the scope
Replacement:
Replace the first paragraph by the following:

This group safety publication is primarily intended to be used as a product safety standard for

the products mentioned in the scope, but shall also be used by technical committees in the

preparation of their publications for products similar to those mentioned in the scope of this

standard, in accordance with the principles laid down in IEC guide 104 and ISO/IEC Guide 51.

This Part 2 of IEC 61010 specifies particular safety requirements for the following types a) to

c) of electrical equipment and their accessories, wherever they are intended to be used,

whenever that equipment incorporates REFRIGERATING SYSTEMS whether an integral part of, or

remote to the equipment and the equipment is in direct control of the REFRIGERATING SYSTEM.

This Part 2 details all the requirements when up to 150 g of FLAMMABLE REFRIGERANT are used

per stage of a REFRIGERATING SYSTEM. Additional requirements beyond the current scope of

this standard apply if a refrigerant charge of FLAMMABLE REFRIGERANT exceeds this amount.

Addition:
Add the following text after the last paragraph:

NOTE 101 Examples for REFRIGERATING EQUIPMENT include, but are not limited to, laboratory equipment such as

laboratory refrigerators, freezers, refrigerated display cabinets, etc.

If all or part of the equipment falls within the scope of one or more other Part 2 standards of

IEC 61010 as well as within the scope of this standard, it should also meet the requirement of

those other Part 2 standards, In particular, if equipment is intended to be used as a centrifuge,

it should meet the requirements of IEC 61010-2-020. However, when the equipment

incorporates a REFRIGERATING SYSTEM and a heating function where the combination of the

two introduces additional or more sever HAZARDS than if treated separately then the

application of IEC 61010-2-012 should be considered instead of this Part 2.

See further information in the flow chart for the selection process and guidance in the

Introduction.
1.1.2 Equipment excluded from scope
