|Publication Date:||1 August 2005|
|ICS Code (Noise emitted by machines and equipment):||17.140.20|
|ICS Code (Dishwashers):||97.040.40|
These particular requirements apply to single-unit electric dishwashers for household and similar use, with or without automatic programme control, for cold and/or hot water supply, for detachable or permanent connection to water supply or sewage systems, intended for placing on the floor against a wall, for building-in or placing under a counter, a kitchen worktop or under a sink, for wall-mounting or on a counter.
Limitations for the use of this test code are given in 1.1.1 of IEC 60704-1.
Types of noise
ISO 3743-1, ISO 3743-2 and ISO 3744 can be used for measuring noise emitted by dishwashers.
Size of the source
The method specified in ISO 3744 is applicable to noise sources of any size. When applying ISO 3743-1 and ISO 3743-2, care should be taken that the maximum size of the dishwasher under test fulfils the requirements specified in 1.3 of ISO 3743-1 and ISO 3743-2.
Requirements for the declaration of noise emission values are not within the scope of this standard.
NOTE For determining and verifying noise emission values declared in product specifications, see IEC 60704-3.
