|Publication Date:||1 July 2013|
|ICS Code (Electric tools):||25.140.20|
This standard consists of Part 1 and Part 2 and applies to electric motor-operated or magnetically-driven tools, intended for indoor and for outdoor use, which have all the following characteristics:
a) easily moved by one person, simple devices to facilitate transportation may be incorporated, e.g. handles, wheels and the like;
b) used in a safe stationary position with or without fixing, e.g. fast clamping devices, bolting and the like;
c) used under the control of an operator;
d) not intended for continuous production or production line use;
e) intended to be connected to electric supply by a flexible cord and a plug;
f) maximum rated voltage not exceeding 250 V single-phase, a.c. or d.c., or 440 V three-phase, a.c.;
g) maximum rated input not exceeding 2500 W, for single-phase a.c. or d.c., and 4000 W for three-phase a.c.
These tools are commonly known as "transportable motor-operated electric tools", hereinafter referred to, in the text, as tools.
Examples of these tools are: Circular saws, band saws, planers,
thicknessers, radial arm saws, spindle moulders, fret saws, jig
saws, mitre/chop saws, wood lathes, belt sanders, disc sanders,
This European Standard applies also to transportable motor operated tools intended to be connected to a water supply such as mains, tank or vat.
This standard does not apply to
- electric motor-operated household and similar electrical appliances according to EN 60335-1;
- hand-held electric motor-operated tools according to EN 50144-1 or EN 60745-1;
- small low voltage transformer operated bench tools intended for model making;
- machines for preparing or processing food;
- tools intended to be used in the presence of explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas);
- tools intended to be used with cosmetics or pharmaceutical products;
- auxiliary equipment such as external cooling and dust
This standard applies to circular saw benches intended for cutting wood and analogous materials, plastics and nonferrous metals except magnesium with a saw blade diameter not exceeding 315 mm, which hereinafter may simply be referred to as saw or tool.
This standard does not apply to circular saw benches intended to cut other metals, such as magnesium, steel and iron. This standard does not apply to circular saw benches with an automatic feeding device.
This standard does not apply to saws designed for use with abrasive wheels.
NOTE Z101 Hand-held electric circular saws and hand-held circular saws mounted on a bench are covered by EN 60745-2-5.
NOTE Z102 EN 1870-1 gives requirements for circular saw benches other than transportable or hand-held electric tools.
NOTE Z103 EN 13898 gives requirements for sawing machines for cold metal.
