This International Standard deals with the safety of electric drives for rolling equipment such as shutters, blinds and awnings, intended for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances.
Drives for equipment with a spring-controlled driven part, such as a folding arm awning, are also within the scope of this standard.
NOTE 101 Examples of rolling equipment that can be driven are
- projection screens;
- shutters covering doors and windows.
Examples are shown in Figure 101.
NOTE 102 Drives may be supplied with a driven part.
Appliances not intended for normal household use but that nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops, in light industry, on farms and on industrial premises, 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 playing with the appliance by young children but recognizes that children may be in the vicinity.
NOTE 103 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.
NOTE 104 This standard does not apply to
- drives for vertically moving garage doors for residential use (IEC 60335-2-95);
- drives for rolling doors (IEC 60335-2-103);
- drives used in premises such as hangars or in heavy industry;
