This clause of part 1 is applicable except as follows.
This standard applies to electrical motor-operated vacuum cleaners and includes appliances and stationary equipment specifically designed for wet suction, dry suction, or wet and dry suction for industrial and commercial use with or without attachments, for example for suction to withdraw dust or the like from work benches and production machines.
NOTE - Commercial uses are, for example, for use in hotels, schools, hospitals, factories, shops and offices for other than normal housekeeping purposes.
This standard also applies to machines handling hazardous dust, e. g. asbestos, or liquids for which additional national requirements apply.
It is also applicable to appliances making use of other forms of energy for the motor; but it is necessary that their influence is taken into consideration.
Replace the first two dashed lines of note 3 by:
- appliances for household use to which IEC 335-2-2 applies;
- centrally sited stationary vacuum cleaning systems;
- appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (vapour or gas).
NOTE 101 - For battery-operated appliances, reference shall be made to IEC 335-2-72.
