inactive, Most Current
Organization: CENELEC
Publication Date: 1 April 2010
Status: inactive
Page Count: 28
ICS Code (Electric tools): 25.140.20
ICS Code (Sawing machines): 25.080.60
scope:

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, thicknessers-planers, chain mortisers, multipurpose machines, combing machines, metal lathes, bench grinders, bench drilling machines, pipe threaders, pipe benders, pipe saws, key cutting machines, sharpening machines, sheet metal shears, concrete drills, concrete saws, wood shredders, pipe cleaners.

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 extraction/collection systems.

Addition:

This European Standard applies to cutting-off grinders intended to cut metal by means of a rotating abrasive cutting-off wheel:

- with an abrasive cutting-off wheel diameter not exceeding 406 mm;

- with a peripheral speed not exceeding 80 m/s.
