1.  Scope

1.1

This standard sets out the requirements for fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) crossarms for use on overhead electrical systems.

1.2

Fibre reinforced polymer crossarms are used with connecting hardware and are part of a structure supporting overhead conductors and insulators that includes poles, guys and anchors. This standard specifies requirements for the fibre reinforced polymer crossarm and does not address the overall structure as a system.

Note: An optional classification system is described in Table A.1 of Annex A and is provided as an informative reference for users of the Standard.

1.3

In CSA Standards, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1.4

The values given in SI units are units of record for the purposes of this Standard. The values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.

1        Scope

Replacement:

This document specifies safety requirements and their verification for the design and construction of robotic battery powered electrical rotary lawnmowers and their peripherals with the rated voltage of the battery being not more than than 75 V d.c [The 250 vdc will be addressed AFTER UL 2595 is published]

EMC and environmental aspects, except noise have not been considered in this standard.

    Scope DV DR Modification: Replace second paragraph with the following:

     EMC and environmental aspects, and noise have not been considered in this standard.

This document does not apply to the additional risks associated with internal combustion engine(s), hybrid and fuel cell powered machines and associated charging systems.

This document deals with all the significant hazards presented by battery powered robotic lawnmowers and their peripherals when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable.

Throughout this document, the term machine is used to refer to the robotic lawnmower, separate from its charging station.

This document also provides requirements for the safety of mains powered charging   stations

and signal sources for perimeter delimiters.

Additional battery operation and charging requirements for robotic lawnmowers, including the charging of lithium ion batteries, are specified in Annex KK which replaces Annexes B and S (except for requirements for non-rechargeable batteries) of Part 1.

This document is not applicable to machines which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by IEC.

NOTE        Informative Annex FF is provided as a test code for convenience to the users of this document.
