Household and similar electrical appliances - Safety -- Part 2-11: Particular requirements for tumble dryers

This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following. This International Standard deals with the safety of electric tumble dryers intended for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for singlephase appliances and 480 V for other appliances. This standard also deals with the safety of tumble dryers that use a refrigerating system, incorporating sealed motor-compressors, for drying textile material. These appliances may use flammable refrigerants. Additional requirements for these appliances are given in Annex BB. 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 that 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 2-11: Règles particulières pour les sèche-linge à tambour

La CEI 60335-2-11:2008 traite de la sécurité des sèche-linge à tambour électriques pour usages domestiques et analogues dont la tension assignée n'est pas supérieure à 250 V pour les appareils monophasés et à 480 V pour les autres appareils. La présente norme s'applique aussi à la fonction séchage des machines à laver ayant un cycle de séchage et traite également de la sécurité des sèche-linge à tambour utilisant un système de réfrigération à motocompresseur hermétique pour sécher le linge. Ces appareils peuvent utiliser des fluides frigorigènes inflammables. Les principales modifications de la présente édition par rapport à la sixième édition sont les suivantes: alignement du texte avec la CEI 60335-1, Ed 4, et ses Amendements 1 et 2; conversion de certaines notes en exigences (7.101,11.8, 20.102, 20.103 et Annexe AA).

Gospodinjski in podobni električni aparati - Varnost - 2-11. del: Posebne zahteve za bobenske sušilnike (IEC 60335-2-11:2008)

Ta klavzula 1. dela je nadomeščena z naslednjim: Ta mednarodni standard obravnava varnost električnih bobenskih sušilnikov za gospodinjstvo in podobne namene, katerih napetost je manjša od 250 V za enofazne aparate in od 480 V za ostale aparate. Ta standard obravnava tudi varnost bobenskih sušilnikov, ki uporabljajo hladilni sistem, kateri vsebuje zaprte gnane kompresorje za sušenje tekstilnih materialov. Ti aparati lahko uporabljajo vnetljiva hladilna sredstva. Dodatne zahteve za te aparate so podane v Dodatku BB. Aparati, ki niso namenjeni za običajno rabo v gospodinjstvu, vendar so kljub temu lahko vir nevarnosti za javnost, kot naprave, namenjene uporabi laikov v trgovinah, v lahki industriji in na kmetijah, spadajo v področje uporabe tega 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 uporabo aparata brez nadzora ali navodil; - igranje otrok z aparatom.

Standard with agreed common modifications as given below.
COMMON MODIFICATIONS
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.
19 Abnormal operation
Add the following new subclause:

19.Z101 The appliance is supplied at rated voltage and operated under normal operation.

Any fault condition or unexpected operation that may be applied in normal use is introduced.

NOTE 1 Examples of fault conditions and unexpected operations are:
– the programmer stopping in any position;

– disconnection and reconnection of one or more phases of the supply during any part of the programme;

– open-circuiting or short-circuiting of components.

NOTE 2 In general, tests are limited to the fault conditions that may be expected to give the most unfavourable results. The

simulation of component faults is limited to those that could expose the user to a hazard.

NOTE 3 If the appliance stops at any particular point in the programme, the test with that fault condition is considered to be ended.

NOTE 4 The fault condition with
– thermal controls short-circuited is covered by 19.4;
– motor capacitors short-circuited or open-circuited is covered by 19.7.
24 Components

Part 2-11: Particular requirements for tumble dryers
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 60335-2-11 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 61:

Safety of household and similar electrical appliances.

This seventh edition cancels and replaces the sixth edition published in 2002 including its

Amendment 1 (2003) and Amendment 2 (2006). It constitutes a technical revision.

The principal changes in this edition as compared with the sixth edition of IEC 60335-2-11 are

as follows (minor changes are not listed):
– aligns the text with IEC 60335-1, Ed 4, and its Amendments 1 and 2;

– some notes have been converted to normative text (7.101, 11.8, 20.102, 20.103 and

Annex AA).

The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
61/3646/FDIS 61/3686/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 tumble dryers.

NOTE 2 The following annexes contain provisions suitably modified from other IEC standards:

Annex AA Rinsing agent IEC 60436

Annex BB Tumble dryers that use a refrigerating system incorporating sealed IEC 60068-2-6 and

motor-compressors for carrying out the drying process IEC 60079-15
Annex CC Non-sparking “n” electrical apparatus IEC 60079-15

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.

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.

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.
