IEC - 60204-32

Safety of machinery – Electrical equipment of machines – Part 32: Requirements for hoisting machines

active, Most Current
Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 July 2023
Status: active
Page Count: 318
ICS Code (Lifting appliances in general): 53.020.01
ICS Code (Electrical engineering in general): 29.020
scope:

This part of IEC 60204 applies to electrical, electronic, programmable electronic equipment and systems to hoisting machines and related equipment, including a group of hoisting machines working together in a co-ordinated manner.

NOTE 1 In this document, the term "electrical" includes both electrical and electronic matters (i.e. "electrical equipment" means both the electrical, electronic and programmable electronic equipment).

NOTE 2 In the context of this document, the term "person" refers to any individual and includes those persons who are assigned and instructed by the user or user's agent(s) in the use and care of the hoisting machine in question.

The equipment covered by this document commences at the point of connection of the supply to the electrical equipment of the hoisting machine (crane-supply-switch) and includes systems for power supply and control feeders situated outside of the hoisting machine, for example, flexible cables or conductor wires or conductor bars (see Figure 3).

NOTE 3 The requirements for the electrical supply installation of electrical equipment of a hoisting machine are given in IEC 60364.

This document is applicable to equipment or parts of equipment not exceeding 1 000 V AC or 1 500 V DC between lines and with nominal frequencies not exceeding 200 Hz.

NOTE 4 Special requirements for electrical equipment of hoisting machines intended to be operated at higher voltages can be found in IEC 60204-11.

This document does not cover all the requirements (for example guarding, interlocking, or control) that are needed or required by other standards or regulations in order to protect persons from hazards other than electrical hazards. Each type of hoisting machine has unique requirements to be accommodated to provide adequate safety. This document does not cover noise risks.

Additional and special requirements can apply to the electrical equipment of hoisting machines including those that

- handle or transport potentially explosive material (e.g. paint or sawdust);

- are intended for use in potentially explosive and/or flammable atmospheres;

- have special risks when transporting or moving certain materials;

- are intended for use in mines.

For the purposes of this document, hoisting machines include cranes of all types, winches of all types and storage and retrieval machines. The following product groups are included:

- overhead travelling cranes;

- mobile cranes;

- tower cranes;

- slewing luffing cranes;

- gantry cranes;

- offshore cranes;

- floating cranes;

- winches of all types;

- hoists and accessories;

- loader cranes;

- cable cranes;

- load holding devices;

- storage and retrieval machines;

- monorail hoists;

- straddle carriers;

- rubber tyred gantry cranes (RTGs).

NOTE 5 A definition of the different crane types can be found in ISO 4306-1.

This document does not cover individual items of electrical equipment other than their selection for use and their erection.
