Household and similar electrical appliances - Safety -- Part 2-30: Particular requirements for room heaters

This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following. This International Standard deals with the safety of electric room heaters for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances. For extraction fans of ceiling mounted heat lamp appliances, IEC 60335-2-80 is applicable as far as is reasonable. 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 the 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 2-30: Besondere Anforderungen für Raumheizgeräte

Appareils électrodomestiques et analogues - Sécurité -- Partie 2-30: Règles particulières pour les appareils de chauffage des locaux

La CEI 60335-2-30:2009 traite de la sécurité des appareils de chauffage 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. Comme exemples d'appareils entrant dans le domaine d'application de la présente norme, on peut citer: - les convecteurs; - les appareils de chauffage soufflants; - les appareils de chauffage utilisés dans les serres; - les radiateurs à circulation de liquide; - les panneaux chauffants; - les appareils de chauffage rayonnants; - les appareils de chauffage à éléments tubulaires chauffants; - les appareils de chauffage à lampe montés au plafond. Les principaux modifications dans cette édition par rapport à la quatrième édition de la CEI 60335-2-30 sont les suivantes: - certaines instructions supplémentaires sont introduites pour les appareils de chauffage sans thermostat intégré, ou ceux installés au sol ou dans une salle de bains (7.12 et 7.12.1); - un essai de débordement est introduit pour les appareils comportant une grille et qui sont encastrés dans le sol (15.2). 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 cette publication soit entériné au niveau national au plus tôt 12 mois et au plus tard 36 mois après la date de publication. Cette publication doit être lue conjointement avec la CEI 60335-1:2010.

Gospodinjski in podobni električni aparati - Varnost - 2-30. del: Posebne zahteve za sobne grelnike (IEC 60335-2-30:2009)

Ta klavzula prvega dela je nadomeščena, kot sledi. Ta mednarodni standard obravnava varnost električnih sobnih grelnikov za gospodinjstvo in podobne namene, katerih napetost je manjša od 250 V za enofazne aparate in od 480 V za ostale aparate. Kolikor je smiselno, velja za ekstrakcijske ventilatorje aparatov z grelno žarnico, nameščene na stropu, IEC 60335-2-80. 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, 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 uporabo aparata brez nadzora ali navodil; - igranje otrok z aparatom.

Introduction
p Add:

An investigation by CENELEC TC 61 has shown that all risks from products within the scope of this

standard are fully covered by the Low Voltage Directive, 2006/95/EC. For products having mechanical

moving parts, a risk assessment in accordance with the Machinery Directive, 2006/42/EC, has shown that

the risks are mainly of electrical origin and consequently this directive is not applicable. However, the

relevant essential safety requirements of the Machinery Directive are covered by this standard together

with the principal objectives of the Low Voltage Directive.

Part 2-30: Particular requirements for room heaters
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 60335-2-30 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 61:

Safety of household and similar electrical appliances.

This fifth edition cancels and replaces the fourth edition published in 2002, its Amendment 1

(2004) and Amendment 2 (2007). It constitutes a technical revision.

The principal changes in this edition as compared with the fourth edition of IEC 60335-2-30

are as follows (minor changes are not listed):

– some additional instructions are introduced for heaters without a built-in thermostat, or

those installed in the floor or in a bathroom (7.12 and 7.12.1);

– a spillage test is introduced for appliances having a grille and that are built into the floor

(15.2).

The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
61/3910/FDIS 61/3957/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 room heaters.

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.

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.

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 that 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.

Part 2-30: Particular requirements for room heaters
1 Scope
This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following.

This International Standard deals with the safety of electric room heaters for household and

similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances

and 480 V for other appliances.
NOTE 101 Examples of appliances that are within the scope of this standard are
– convector heaters;
– fan heaters;
– heaters for use in greenhouses;
– liquid-filled radiators;
– panel heaters;
– radiant heaters;
– tubular heaters;
– ceiling mounted heat lamp appliances.

For extraction fans of ceiling mounted heat lamp appliances, IEC 60335-2-80 is applicable

as far as is reasonable.

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 the 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.
NOTE 102 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 and similar authorities;

– for appliances intended to be used in the presence of combustible dust, for example in barns or stables,

additional requirements may be necessary.
