scope:

similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances.

NOTE 1 Battery-operated appliances and other d.c. supplied appliances are within the scope of this standard. Dual supply appliances, either mains-supplied or battery-operated, are regarded as battery-operated appliances when operated in the battery mode. 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.

NOTE 2 Examples of such appliances are catering equipment, cleaning appliances for commercial use, and appliances for hairdressers. 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.

NOTE 3 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, the national water supply authorities and similar authorities.

NOTE 4 This standard does not apply to

- appliances intended exclusively for industrial purposes;

- appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas);

- audio, video and similar electronic apparatus (IEC 60065);

- appliances for medical purposes (IEC 60601);

- hand-held motor-operated electric tools (IEC 60745);

- personal computers and similar equipment (IEC 60950-1);

- transportable motor-operated electric tools (IEC 61029).

This part of IEC 60335 deals with the safety of high-pressure cleaners without traction drive, intended for household and commercial indoor or outdoor use, having a rated pressure not less than 2,5 MPa and not exceeding 35 MPa.

It also applies to steam cleaners and those parts of hot water high pressure cleaners incorporating a steam stage which have a capacity not exceeding 100 l, a rated pressure not exceeding 2,5 MPa and a product of capacity and rated pressure not exceeding 5 MPa·l.

They are not equipped with a traction drive. The following power systems of the drive for the high pressure pump are covered:

- mains powered motors up to a rated voltage of 250 V for single-phase machines and 480 V for other machines,

- battery-operated motors,

- internal combustion engines,

- hydraulic or pneumatic motors.

This standard does not apply to

- high pressure water jet machines having a rated pressure exceeding 35 MPa;

NOTE 101 In Europe, those machines are covered by EN 1829-1.

- steam cleaners intended for domestic use (IEC 60335-2-54);

- hand-held and transportable motor-operated electric tools (IEC 60745 series, IEC 61029 series, IEC 62841 series);

- appliances for medical purposes (IEC 60601);

- agricultural sprayers (ISO 4254-6);

- non-liquid, solid abrasive cleaners;

- machines designed to be part of a production process;

- machines designed for use in corrosive or explosive environments (dust, vapour or gas);

- machines designed for use in vehicles or on board of ships or aircraft.

NOTE 102 Attention is drawn to the fact that in many countries additional requirements on the safe use of the equipment covered can be specified by the national health authorities, the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour, the national water supply authorities and similar authorities.
