Part 3-7: Particular requirements for transportable wall saws
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 62841-3-7 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 116:

Safety of motor-operated electric tools.
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
116/455/FDIS 116/461/RVD

IEC 62841-3-7:2020 © IEC 2020 – 5 –

This Part 3-7 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 62841-1, so as to

convert it into the IEC Standard: Particular requirements for transportable wall saws.

Where a particular subclause of Part 1 is not mentioned in this Part 3-7, that subclause applies

as far as relevant. Where this standard states "addition", "modification" or "replacement", the

relevant text in Part 1 is to be adapted accordingly.
The following print types are used:
– requirements: in roman type;
– test specifications: in italic type;
– notes: in small roman type.
The terms defined in Clause 3 are printed in bold typeface.

Subclauses, notes and figures which are additional to those in Part 1 are numbered starting

from 101.

A list of all parts of the IEC 62841 series, under the general title: Electric motor-operated hand-

held tools, transportable tools and lawn and garden machinery – Safety, can be found on the

IEC website.

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

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

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• withdrawn,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

NOTE 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 36 months from the date of publication.

8.14.1.101 Safety instructions for wall saws

a) Operate the power tool by insulated grasping surfaces when performing an operation

where the cutting accessory can contact hidden wiring or its own cord. A cutting

accessory contacting a "live" wire can make exposed metal parts of the power tool "live"

and could give the operator an electric shock.

b) Wear ear protectors when diamond sawing. Exposure to noise can cause hearing loss.

c) If the diamond wheel becomes jammed, stop applying feed force and turn off the tool.

Investigate and take corrective actions to eliminate the cause of the diamond wheel

jamming. Continued operation with a jammed diamond wheel could cause loss of control

or damage to the wall saw.

d) When sawing through the workpiece, ensure to protect persons and the work area on

the other side. The diamond wheel may protrude through the workpiece.

e) Ensure that the method of securing the track guiding system to the workpiece is

capable of holding and restraining the machine during use. If the workpiece is weak or

porous, the anchor(s) can pull out, causing the track guiding system to release from the

workpiece.
8.14.2 a) Addition:

101) Information about which diamond wheels (type, arbor size, diameter and thickness)

can be used with the tool, including the recommended tool speed for each diamond
wheel diameter;
102) Information on the types of material that may be cut;

Emissions
1) The noise emission, measured in accordance with I.2, as follows:

– A-weighted sound pressure level L and its uncertainty K , where L exceeds 70 dB(A).

pA pA pA
Where L does not exceed 70 dB(A), this fact shall be indicated;

– A-weighted sound power level L and its uncertainty K , where the A-weighted sound pressure level

WA WA
L exceeds 80 dB(A);

– peak C-weighted instantaneous sound pressure value L , where this exceeds 63 Pa (130 dB in

pCpeak
relation to 20 µPa).
2) Recommendation for the operator to wear hearing protection.
3) The following information:

– that the declared noise emission value(s) have been measured in accordance with a standard test

method and may be used for comparing one tool with another;

– that the declared noise emission value(s) may also be used in a preliminary assessment of exposure.

4) A warning:

– that the noise emissions during actual use of the power tool can differ by up to 10 dB compared to the

declared values, depending on the diamond wheel and working conditions, which should be taken into

account when selecting hearing protection; and

– of the need to identify safety measures to protect the operator that are based on an estimation of

exposure in the actual conditions of use (taking account of all parts of the operating cycle such as the

times when the tool is switched off and when it is running idle in addition to the trigger time).
