Automatic electrical controls for household and similar use - Part 2-22: Particular requirements for thermal motor protectors

EN-IEC 60730-2-22  applies to the partial evaluation of thermal motor protectors asdefined in IEC 60730-1 for household and similar use, including heating, air conditioning andsimilar applications as well as for sealed (hermetic and semi-hermetic type) motorcompressors.NOTE A thermal motor protector is considered an integrated control since its protective functionality isdependent on the correct mounting and fixing in or on a motor and which can only be fully tested in combinationwith the relevant motor. This dependency is illustrated by:• the ability of the thermal motor protector to accurately and reliably sense the heat of the motor windings;thus, addressing the over-temperature protection due to motor overload conditions;• the ability of the thermal motor protector to accurately and reliably sense the current due to motor lockedrotorconditions; thus, reducing the response time and not being adversely affected by heat-sink at theassembly spot in the application;• the influence of the motor’s electromagnetic field on the switch behaviour of the thermal motor protector;particularly, affecting the arc direction between the contacts resulting in uneven wear of the contact materialand eventually leading to failure of operation.Requirements concerning the testing of the combination of sealed (hermetic and semihermetictype) motor-compressors and thermal motor protectors are given inIEC 60335-2-34.

Dispositifs de commande électrique automatiques à usage domestique et analogue - Partie 2-2: Règles particulières pour les dispositifs thermiques de protection des moteurs

L'IEC 60730-2-22:2014 s'applique à l'évaluation partielle des protecteurs thermiques tels que définis dans l'IEC 60730-1 pour usages domestiques et analogues, y compris pour le chauffage, l'air conditionné et applications analogues, ainsi qu'aux motocompresseurs étanches (de type hermétique et hermétique accessible). Un protecteur thermique est considéré comme un dispositif de commande intégrée, sa fonction de protection dépendant de son montage et de sa fixation correcte dans ou sur un moteur, et qui ne peut être complètement soumis à essai qu'en association avec le moteur concerné. Cette dépendance est illustrée par: - l'aptitude du protecteur thermique à détecter de manière précise et fiable la chaleur des enroulements du moteur et donc à assurer, la protection contre la surchauffe en raison des conditions de surcharge du moteur; - l'aptitude du protecteur thermique à détecter de manière précise et fiable le courant en raison de conditions de rotor bloqué et donc, à réduire le temps de réponse et à ne pas être affecté par le dissipateur thermique sur le lieu d'assemblage dans l'application; - l'influence du champ électromagnétique du moteur sur le comportement du commutateur du protecteur thermique, affectant, en particulier, la direction d'arc entre les contacts résultant d'une usure inégale du matériau de contact, et donnant éventuellement lieu à une défaillance de fonctionnement. Les exigences relatives à l'essai de la combinaison des motocompresseurs étanches (de type hermétique et hermétique accessible) et des protecteurs thermiques sont données dans l'IEC 60335-2-34. La présente norme s'applique aux protecteurs thermiques utilisant des thermistances CTN ou CTP, dont les exigences supplémentaires sont contenues dans l'Annexe J.

Part 2-22: Particular requirements for thermal motor protectors
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 60730-22 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 72:

Automatic electrical controls.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
72/941/FDIS 72/950/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 2-22 is intended to be used in conjunction with IEC 60730-1. It was established on

the basis of the fourth edition (2010) of that standard . Consideration may be given to future

editions of, or amendments to, IEC 60730-1.

This Part 2-22 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 60730-1 so as to

convert that publication into the IEC standard: Safety requirements for automatic electrical

thermal motor protectors.

Where this Part 2-22 states "addition", "modification", or "replacement", the relevant

requirement, test specification or explanatory matter in Part 1 should be adapted accordingly.

Where no change is necessary, this Part 2-22 indicates that the relevant clause or subclause

applies.

In the development of a fully international standard, it has been necessary to take into

consideration the differing requirements resulting from practical experience in various parts of

the world and to recognize the variation in national electrical systems and wiring rules.

The “in some countries” notes regarding differing national practice are contained in the

following subclauses:
– 7.2.6 (Canada, USA)
– 12.2 (Canada, Japan, USA)
– 17.101.2.1.2 (Canada, USA)
– 18.1.3.101.2 (Canada, USA)
– BB17.205.1.2 (Canada, USA)
In this publication:
1) The following print types are used:
– Requirements proper: in roman type;
– Test specifications: in italic type;
– Explanatory matter; in small roman type;
– Words defined in Clause 2: bold.

2) Subclauses, notes, tables and figures which are additional to those in part 1 are numbered

starting from 101, additional annexes are lettered AA, BB, etc.

A list of all parts of the IEC 60730 series, under the general title Automatic electrical controls

for household and similar use, can be found on the IEC website.

AUTOMATIC ELECTRICAL CONTROLS–
Part 2-22: Particular requirements for thermal motor protectors
1 Scope and normative references
This clause of Part 1 is applicable except as follows:
1.1 Replacement:

This part of IEC 60730 applies to the partial evaluation of thermal motor protectors as

defined in IEC 60730-1 for household and similar use, including heating, air conditioning and

similar applications as well as for sealed (hermetic and semi-hermetic type) motor-

compressors.

NOTE A thermal motor protector is considered an integrated control since its protective functionality is

dependent on the correct mounting and fixing in or on a motor and which can only be fully tested in combination

with the relevant motor. This dependency is illustrated by:

• the ability of the thermal motor protector to accurately and reliably sense the heat of the motor windings;

thus, addressing the over-temperature protection due to motor overload conditions;

• the ability of the thermal motor protector to accurately and reliably sense the current due to motor locked-

rotor conditions; thus, reducing the response time and not being adversely affected by heat-sink at the

assembly spot in the application;

• the influence of the motor’s electromagnetic field on the switch behaviour of the thermal motor protector;

particularly, affecting the arc direction between the contacts resulting in uneven wear of the contact material

and eventually leading to failure of operation.

Requirements concerning the testing of the combination of sealed (hermetic and semi-

hermetic type) motor-compressors and thermal motor protectors are given in
IEC 60335-2-34.

This standard applies to thermal motor protectors using NTC or PTC thermistors, additional

requirements for which are contained in Annex J.

1.1.1 This standard applies to the inherent safety, to the operating values, operating

times, and operating sequences, where such are associated with equipment safety, and to

the testing of thermal motor protectors used in or on household or similar equipment as well

as sealed (hermetic and semi-hermetic type) motor-compressors.

This standard applies to thermal motor protectors for appliances within, but not limited to,

the scope of IEC 60335-1 and its Part 2’s.

NOTE Throughout this standard, the word “equipment” means “appliance and equipment”.

Thermal motor protectors not intended for normal household use, but which nevertheless

may be used by the public, such as equipment intended to be used by laymen in shops, in

light industry and on farms, are within the scope of this standard.

This standard does not apply to thermal motor protectors designed exclusively for industrial

applications.
1.1.2 This standard does not apply to other means of motor protection.

6.4 According to features of automatic action
6.4.1 Not applicable.
6.4.2 Replacement:
– Type 3 action.
6.4.3 Replacement:

Type 3 actions are further classified according to one or more of the following constructional

or operational features:

NOTE 1 These further classifications are only applicable if the relevant declarations have been made and any

appropriate tests completed.

NOTE 2 An action providing more than one feature is classified by a combination of the appropriate letters, for

example, Type 3.C.L.
NOTE 3 A manual action is not classified according to 6.4.3.
6.4.3.1 Void

which may automatically be reset to the “closed” position after normal operation conditions

have been restored if the reset means is held in the “reset” position (Type 3.H);

6.4.3.101 Thermal motor protectors are further classified according to the following

constructional or operational features:
– non-self-resetting (Type 3.B.H);
– self-resetting (Type 3.C).
Additional subclause:
6.101 According to limited short-circuit capability
NOTE For limited short-circuit test details, refer to 17.101.

Not all designs of devices are capable of sustaining or interrupting the short-circuit current

without introducing a fire hazard. There is definite evidence that a short circuit in an

unprotected motor by itself may not necessarily introduce a fire hazard because the circuit is

safely de-energized by the opening of the mains overcurrent device. But if there is a thermal

protector in the path of the fault current, a fire may result from an arcing disturbance when

---------------------- Page: 15 ----------------------

– 10 – IEC 60730-2-22:2014 © IEC 2014

this protector attempts to clear the fault. Such disturbances can and do occur before the

mains overcurrent device has an opportunity to open. The tests of 17.101 are designed to

assess the operation of a thermal motor protector under these conditions.
