Household and similar electrical appliances - Safety -- Part 2-3: Particular requirements for electric irons

Standard deals with the safety of electric dry irons and steam irons, including those with a separate water reservoir or boiler having a capacity not exceeding 5 l, for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V. Appliances not intended for normal household use, but which nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops, in light industry and on farms, 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.

Sicherheit elektrischer Geräte für den Hausgebrauch und ähnliche Zwecke -- Teil 2-3: Besondere Anforderungen für elektrische Bügeleisen

Appareils électrodomestiques et analogues - Sécurité -- Partie 2-3: Règles particulières pour les fers à repasser électriques

La CEI 60335-2-3:2012 traite de la sécurité des fers à repasser électriques à sec et des fers à vapeur, y compris ceux avec un réservoir d'eau ou un bouilleur séparé ayant une capacité n'excédant pas 5 l, pour usages domestiques et analogues, la tension assignée des appareils n'étant pas supérieure à 250 V. Les appareils qui ne sont pas destinés à un usage domestique normal mais qui peuvent néanmoins constituer une source de danger pour le public, tels que les appareils destinés à être utilisés par des usagers non avertis dans les magasins, chez les artisans et dans les fermes, sont compris dans le domaine d'application de la présente norme. Dans la mesure du possible, la présente norme traite des risques ordinaires présentés par les appareils, encourus par tous les individus à l'intérieur et autour de l'habitation. Cependant, cette norme ne tient pas compte en general; des personnes (y compris des enfants) dont les capacités physiques, sensorielles ou mentales; ou le manque d'expérience et de connaissance les empêchent d'utiliser l'appareil en toute sécurité sans surveillance ou instruction de l'utilisation de l'appareil comme jouet par des enfants. La présente norme ne s'applique pas aux machines à repasser (CEI 60335-2-44); aux appareils prévus exclusivement pour des usages industriels; aux appareils destinés à être utilisés dans des locaux présentant des conditions particulières, telles que la présence d'une atmosphère corrosive ou explosive (poussière, vapeur ou gaz). Cette sixième édition annule et remplace la cinquième édition parue en 2002, y compris son Amendement 1 (2004) et son Amendement 2 (2008). Elle constitue une révision technique. Les principaux changements dans cette édition par rapport à la cinquième édition de la CEI 60335-2-3 sont les suivants (les changements mineurs ne sont pas listés): - Plusieurs notes ont été converties en texte normatif (20.1, 21.102, 22.106, 24.4, 25.5, 25.14); - Les conduits qui sont soumis à l'essai de pression ont été identifiés (22.7); - Les types de câbles souples qui peuvent être utilisés sont explicités (25.7). L'attention des Comités Nationaux est attirée sur le fait que les fabricants d'appareils et les organismes d'essai peuvent avoir besoin d'une période transitoire après la publication d'une nouvelle publication CEI, ou d'une publication amendée ou révisée, pour fabriquer des produits conformes aux nouvelles exigences et pour adapter leurs équipements aux nouveaux essais ou aux essais révisés. Le comité recommande que le contenu de l'amendement 1 soit entériné au niveau national au plus tôt 12 mois et au plus tard 36 mois après la date de publication. Mots clé: fers à repasser électriques à sec, fers à vapeur

Gospodinjski in podobni električni aparati - Varnost - 2-3. del: Posebne zahteve za električne likalnike

Ta standard obravnava varnost električnih suhih in parnih likalnikov, vključno z likalniki z ločenim vodnim rezervoarjem ali grelcem, katerega prostornina ne presega 5 l, za gospodinjstvo in podobno uporabo, pri čemer njihova nazivna napetost ne presega 250 V. Področje uporabe tega standarda zajema aparate, ki niso namenjeni za običajno gospodinjsko uporabo, vendar so lahko vir nevarnosti za javnost, kot so aparati, namenjeni za laično uporabo v trgovinah, lahki industriji in na kmetijah. Ta standard v največji možni meri obravnava splošne nevarnosti, ki jih predstavljajo aparati ter s katerimi se srečujejo osebe doma in v okolici doma. Vendar na splošno ne upošteva: – oseb (vključno z otroki), ki zaradi – fizičnih, čutilnih ali duševnih zmožnosti ali – neizkušenosti in neznanja aparata ne morejo varno uporabljati brez nadzora ali navodil; – otrok, ki se igrajo z aparatom.

Bare metal 40 45
Coated metal 45 55
Glass and ceramic 55 60
Plastic and plastic coating > 0,3 mm 60 65
The following surfaces or elements shall not be taken into consideration:

• hot functional surface: surface which is intentionally heated by an internal heat source and which has to be hot to carry

out the function for which the equipment is intended to be used;

EXAMPLE The soleplate of an iron regardless of the thickness of the soleplate, including the metallic side parts and

metallic functional ironing tips, if any;

• adjacent surface: a surface adjacent to a functional surface. The adjacent surface and the functional surface may consist

of the same piece of material or are in thermal contact and have similar thermal properties. The adjacent surface is not

heated intentionally during use of the product. However, as it is adjacent to the functional surface and may become hot

through conduction, its temperature will be in the range between the functional and a touchable surface.

Examples are: the stand of an iron on a separated boiler and surface of the enclosure immediately surrounding the water

heater enclosure plus 50 mm on all sides of a separated boiler, any part of the enclosure of an iron surrounding the

soleplate plus 25 mm.

operate or adjust the equipment
The equipment has to be installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

When the thickness of the plastic coating does not exceed 0,3 mm, the temperature rise limits of the coated metal or of glass

and ceramic material apply.

When, due to the construction or dimensional limitations of the appliance, the required values cannot be met, the maximum

temperature rise shall not be higher than twice the values indicated. In such cases, a warning shall be marked on the relevant

surface of the appliance.

Metal is considered coated when a coating having a minimum thickness of 80 µm made by enamel or non substantially plastic

coating is used.

The temperature rise limit of plastic also applies for plastic material having a metal finish of thickness less than 0,1 mm.

Add the following new subclause:

11.Z101 For the measurement of temperature rises, the instructions from the manufacturer on where

the appliance has to be situated during normal operations shall be followed.

Temperature rises are not measured on the underside of appliances intended to be used on a working

surface or floor.

Part 2-3: Particular requirements for electric irons
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.

This part of International Standard IEC 60335 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 its Amendment 2 (2008). It constitutes a technical revision.

The principal changes in this edition as compared with the fifth edition of IEC 60335-2-3 are

as follows (minor changes are not listed):

‒ some notes have been converted to normative text (20.1, 21.102, 22.106, 24.4, 25.5,

25.14);
‒ hoses that are subjected to the pressure test have been identified (22.7);
‒ the types of flexible cord that can be used are clarified (25.7).

The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
61/4342/FDIS 61/4353/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 fifth edition (2010) 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 irons.

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 2 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 3 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 this publication will remain unchanged until

the stability 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.

NOTE 4 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.

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.
