Household and similar electrical appliances - Safety -- Part 2-4: Particular requirements for spin extractors

This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following. This International Standard deals with the safety of - stand alone electric spin extractors, and - spin extractors incorporated in washing machines that have separate containers for washing and spin extraction for household and similar purposes that have a capacity not exceeding 10 kg of dry cloth and a drum peripheral speed not exceeding 50 m/s, their rated voltages being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances. Appliances not intended for normal household use but which nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public, such as spin extractors intended to be used by laymen in shops, in light industry and on farms, and spin extractors for communal use in blocks of flats or in launderettes are within the scope of this standard. As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances which are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, in general, it does not take into account - persons (including children) whose . physical, sensory or mental capabilities; or . lack of experience and knowledge prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction; - children playing with the appliance.

Appareils électrodomestiques et analogues - Sécurité -- Partie 2-4: Règles particulières pour les essoreuses centrifuges

CEI 60335-2-4:2008 traite de la sécurité des essoreuses incorporées dans des machines à laver le linge qui ont des tambours séparés pour le lavage et l'essorage, pour usages domestiques et analogues dont la capacité ne dépasse pas 10 kg de linge sec, dont la vitesse périphérique du tambour ne dépasse pas 50 m/s et dont la tension assignée n'est pas supérieure à 250 V pour les appareils monophasés et à 480 V pour les autres appareils. Les principales modifications de la présente édition par rapport à la cinquième édition de la CEI 60335-2-4 sont les suivantes alignement du texte avec la CEI 60335-1: 2001, et ses Amendements 1 et 2; clarification des critères pour la protection contre les dangers mécaniques pour les appareils ayant deux couvercles (20.103 and 20.104); conversion de certaines notes en exigences (Article 1, 20.102 et Annexe AA).

Gospodinjski in podobni električni aparati - Varnost - 2-4. del: Posebne zahteve za centrifuge (IEC 60335-2-4:2008, spremenjen)

Ta klavzula prvega dela je nadomeščena, kot sledi. Ta mednarodni standard obravnava varnost samostojnih električnih centrifug, centrifug v pralnih strojih, ki imajo ločene posode za pranje in centrifugo za gospodinjsko in podobno uporabo, ki imajo kapaciteto manjšo od 10 kg suhega blaga in periferno hitrost bobna manjšo od 50 m/s, njihova ocenjena napetost pa je manjša od 250 V za enofazne aparate in od 480 V za ostale aparate. Aparati, ki niso namenjeni za običajno rabo v gospodinjstvu, vendar so kljub temu lahko vir nevarnosti za javnost, kot centrifuge, namenjene uporabi laikov v trgovinah, v lahki industriji in na kmetijah, ter centrifuge za komunalno uporabo v blokih ali javnih pralnicah, so zajeti v tem standardu. V kolikor je izvedljivo, se ta standard ukvarja s splošnimi nevarnostmi, ki jih predstavljajo aparati, in na katere so naletele osebe doma ali v okolici doma. Vendar na splošno ne upošteva: – oseb (vključno z otroki), katerim – pomanjkanje fizičnih, čutilnih ali duševnih zmožnosti; ali – pomanjkanje izkušenj in znanja preprečuje varno uporabe aparata brez nadzora ali navodil; - igranje otrok z aparatom.

EN 60335-2-4:2010 - 4 - Endorsement notice The text of the International Standard IEC 60335-2-4:2008 was approved by CENELEC as a European Standard with agreed common modifications as given below. COMMON MODIFICATIONS 1 Scope p Replace by: This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following. This European Standard deals with the safety of

- stand alone electric spin extractors - spin extractors incorporated in washing machines that have separate containers for washing and spin extraction

for household and similar purposes that have a capacity not exceeding 10 kg of dry cloth and a drum peripheral speed not exceeding 50 m/s, their rated voltages being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances. Appliances not intended for normal household use but which nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public, such as spin extractors intended to be used by laymen in shops, on farms, and for communal use in blocks of flats are within the scope of this standard. This standard deals with the common hazards presented by spin extractors that are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, it does not take into account –- persons (including children) whose • physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or • lack of experience and knowledge

prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction, – children playing with the appliance. This standard does not apply to – spin extractors intended to be used in launderettes, – spin extractors intended exclusively for industrial purposes, – spin extractors intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas). NOTE 101

Attention is drawn to the fact that – for appliances intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or aircraft, additional requirements may be necessary, – in many countries additional requirements are specified by the national health authorities, the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour, the national water supply authorities and similar authorities. 3 Definitions p Add: 3.Z101 spin extractor appliance having a water-extracting function by which water is removed from textiles by centrifugal force SIST EN 60335-2-4:2010

- 5 - EN 60335-2-4:2010 7 Marking and instructions p 7.12.1 Replace “lid” by “lid or door”. p 7.101 Replace “lid” by “lid or door” (two times). 15 Moisture resistance p 15.2 Add before the last paragraph:

For appliances having a working surface, the test is repeated with the appliance tilted at an angle of 2° in relation to the position of normal use in the direction which is likely to be the most unfavourable.

The lid of top loading appliances is considered as a working surface if it is flat enough to put something on. 18 Endurance p Replace by: This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following. Lid and door interlocks of spin extractors shall withstand the stresses to which they are subjected in normal use. Compliance is checked by the following test. The lid or door is opened as in normal use and the force applied to the handle or actuating means of the release mechanism is measured. The force required to close the lid or door is also measured. The lid or door is then subjected to 6 000 cycles of opening and closing. For the first 3 000 cycles, the spin extractor is supplied at rated voltage and operated so that the interlock mechanism is energized and de-energized each cycle. For the remaining 3 000 cycles, the spin extractor is not connected to the supply mains. If the interlock complies with EN 60730-2-12, the spin extractor

is not connected to the supply mains during this test. If the interlock operates more than once during normal operation, it is operated for this number of times during each cycle. Lids are opened each time by approximately 45° and doors by approximately 90°, the speed of opening being approximately 1,5 m/s. The force applied to open the lid or door is twice the measured opening force, with a minimum of 50 N and a maximum of 200 N. Doors are closed at a speed of approximately 1,5 m/s, the force applied being five times the measured closing force, with a minimum of 50 N and a maximum of 200 N. Lids are allowed to close under their own weight but if they fail to latch, a force of five times the measured closing force is applied, with a minimum of 50 N and a maximum of 200 N. After the tests, the interlock shall be fit for further use and compliance with the relevant requirements of 20.103 shall not be impaired. 20 Stability and mechanical hazards p 20.102 Replace the first paragraph by: It shall only be possible to energize the drum drive motor when the lid or door is in the closed position and locked.

EN 60335-2-4:2010 - 6 - p 20.103 Replace by: 20.103 For appliances having a drum it shall not be possible to open the lid or door while the drum is in motion. Compliance is checked by inspection and by the following test. The appliance is supplied at rated voltage and operated empty. The force determined during the test of 22.101 with the lid or door interlocked is applied to the lid or door in an attempt to open it. It shall not be possible to open the lid or door while the drum is in motion. p 20.104 Delete 21 Mechanical strength p 21.101 Replace by: Lids or doors of appliances shall have adequate mechanical strength. Compliance is checked by the following test. Appliances with doors are positioned so that the door is in a horizontal plane.

A rubber hemisphere having a diameter of 70 mm and a hardness between 40 IRHD and 50 IRHD is fixed to a cylinder having a mass of 20 kg and dropped from a height of 100 mm onto the centre of the lid or door. The test is carried out three times, after which the lid or door shall not be damaged to the extent that moving parts become accessible. p 21.102 Replace “lid” by “lid or door” (two times). In the last paragraph, replace “to 20.104” by “to 20.103”. 24 Components p 24.1.4 Replace “lid” by “lid or door”.

Part 2-4: Particular requirements for spin extractors

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 provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication. 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 60335-2-4 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 61: Safety of household and similar electrical appliances. This sixth edition cancels and replaces the fifth edition published in 2002 including its Amendment 1 (2004) and Amendment 2 (2006). It constitutes a technical revision. The principal changes in this edition as compared with the fifth edition of IEC 60335-2-4 are as follows (minor changes are not listed): – aligns the text with IEC 60335-1:2001, and its Amendments 1 and 2; – clarifies criteria for the protection against mechanical hazards for double lid appliances (20.103 and 20.104); – some notes have been converted to normative text (Clause 1, 20.102 and Annex AA). SIST EN 60335-2-4:2010

– 4 – 60335-2-4 © IEC:2008 The text of this standard is based on the following documents: FDIS Report on voting 61/3677/FDIS 61/3697/RVD

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. This part 2 is to be used in conjunction with the latest edition of IEC 60335-1 and its amendments. It was established on the basis of the fourth edition (2001) of that standard. NOTE 1 When “Part 1” is mentioned in this standard, it refers to IEC 60335-1. This part 2 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 60335-1, so as to convert that publication into the IEC standard: Safety requirements for electric spin extractors. NOTE 2 The following annex contain provisions suitably modified from another IEC standard: Annex AA Rinsing agent IEC 60436 When a particular subclause of Part 1 is not mentioned in this part 2, that subclause applies as far as is reasonable. When this standard states "addition", "modification" or "replacement", the relevant text in Part 1 is to be adapted accordingly. NOTE 3 The following numbering system is used: – subclauses, tables and figures that are numbered starting from 101 are additional to those in Part 1; – unless notes are in a new subclause or involve notes in Part 1, they are numbered starting from 101, including those in a replaced clause or subclause;

– additional annexes are lettered AA, BB, etc. NOTE 4 The following print types are used: – requirements: in roman type; – test specifications: in italic type; – notes: in small roman type. Words in bold in the text are defined in Clause 3. When a definition concerns an adjective, the adjective and the associated noun are also in bold. A list of all parts of the IEC 60335 series, under the general title: Household and similar electrical appliances – Safety, can be found on the IEC website. The committee has decided that the contents of the base publication and its amendments will remain unchanged until the maintenance result 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, • replaced by a revised edition, or • amended. SIST EN 60335-2-4:2010

60335-2-4 © IEC:2008 – 5 – NOTE 5 The attention of National Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselves for conducting new or revised tests. It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this publication be adopted for implementation nationally not earlier than 12 months or later than 36 months from the date of publication. The following differences exist in the countries indicated below. 3.1.9: As an alternative to the test material specified, pieces of cloth having an area between 4 800 cm2 and 5 000 cm2, with one side at least 55 cm, may be used for the tests (USA). 6.1: Class 0I appliances are allowed (Japan). 6.2: IPX0 appliances are allowed (USA). 15.2: The test is different (USA). 18: The test is carried out for 6 000 cycles (Canada and USA). 19.7: This subclause is applicable (USA). 20.101: The test is not carried out (USA). 20.103: The requirement is different (USA). 20.104: The requirement is different (USA). 21.101: There are constructional requirements for metal lids and the tests are different for thermoplastic lids (USA) 21.102: There are constructional requirements for metal lids and the tests are different for thermoplastic lids (USA).

– 6 – 60335-2-4 © IEC:2008 INTRODUCTION It has been assumed in the drafting of this International Standard that the execution of its provisions is entrusted to appropriately qualified and experienced persons.

This standard recognizes the internationally accepted level of protection against hazards such as electrical, mechanical, thermal, fire and radiation of appliances when operated as in normal use taking into account the manufacturer's instructions. It also covers abnormal situations that can be expected in practice and takes into account the way in which electromagnetic phenomena can affect the safe operation of appliances. This standard takes into account the requirements of IEC 60364 as far as possible so that there is compatibility with the wiring rules when the appliance is connected to the supply mains. However, national wiring rules may differ. If an appliance within the scope of this standard also incorporates functions that are covered by another part 2 of IEC 60335, the relevant part 2 is applied to each function separately, as far as is reasonable. If applicable, the influence of one function on the other is taken into account.

When a part 2 standard does not include additional requirements to cover hazards dealt with in Part 1, Part 1 applies.

NOTE 1 This means that the technical committees responsible for the part 2 standards have determined that it is not necessary to specify particular requirements for the appliance in question over and above the general requirements.

This standard is a product family standard dealing with the safety of appliances and takes precedence over horizontal and generic standards covering the same subject. NOTE 2 Horizontal and generic standards covering a hazard are not applicable since they have been taken into consideration when developing the general and particular requirements for the IEC 60335 series of standards. For example, in the case of temperature requirements for surfaces on many appliances, generic standards, such as ISO 13732-1 for hot surfaces, are not applicable in addition to Part 1 or part 2 standards. An appliance that complies with the text of this standard will not necessarily be considered to comply with the safety principles of the standard if, when examined and tested, it is found to have other features which impair the level of safety covered by these requirements. An appliance employing materials or having forms of construction differing from those detailed in the requirements of this standard may be examined and tested according to the intent of the requirements and, if found to be substantially equivalent, may be considered to comply with the standard.
