This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following.

This part of IEC 60335 deals with the safety of appliances for making ice cream and artisan gelato.

Appliances taken into account are those intended for commercial use and similar appliances not intended for normal household use but which may nevertheless be a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops, stores, by artisans or on farms, which rated voltage is not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances.

Appliances covered by this standard are provided with a refrigerant condensing unit which is usually incorporated, but for some appliances may be remote.

This standard also applies to following types of appliances:

• mixers to make ice cream and similar pastry products in which, for the preparation of the product, an heating process is made within the appliance before the cooling process;
• appliances for storing whipping cream mix in a refrigerated tank and for whipping the cream for the delivery process.

NOTE 101 Attention is drawn to the fact that:

– for appliances intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or aircraft, additional requirements can be necessary;
– in many countries, additional requirements are specified by the national health authorities, the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour, the national water supply authorities and similar authorities.

This standard does not apply to:

– appliances with a refrigerating system operating with flammable refrigerant;
– ice cream appliances for household use (IEC 60335-2-24);
– appliances intended exclusively for industrial purposes;
– appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas).

This document gives the safety requirements and measures to reduce risks arising during operation, adjustment, maintenance, transport, assembly, dismantling, disabling and scrapping, related to woodworking machines capable of continuous production use, hereinafter referred as “machines”. These safety requirements and measures are those common to most of the machines, when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer; reasonably foreseeable misuse has been considered too.

The machines are designed to process solid wood and material with similar physical characteristics to wood, with hand feed or integrated feed.

This document is intended to be used in conjunction with the other parts of the ISO 19085 series, applicable to specific machine types. The extent to which all significant hazards of a specific machine type are covered is indicated in the specific part of the ISO 19085 series relevant to that machine type. The hazards covered, at least partly, by the requirements of this document, are listed in Annex A.

It is not applicable to machines intended for use in potential explosive atmospheres or to machines manufactured prior to the date of its publication.

1DV.1  Modify Clause 1 by adding the following to the first paragraph:

This Standard applies to electrical woodworking machines rated 600 V or less that are intended to be installed and used in accordance with the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70) in the United States and the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I (CSA C22.1) in Canada.

 

In Canada, general requirements applicable to these machines are provided in CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 0.

 

1DV.2  Modify Clause 1 by adding the following Note after the last paragraph:

NOTE:   Machines for capturing and extracting dust are not within the scope of this Standard.

[Add the following]

This Standard covers the above noted products that are intended to be installed or used in accordance with CSA C22.1, the Canadian electrical Code, Part I.

This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following.

This International Standard deals with the safety of outdoor barbecues for household and similar use, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V.

Appliances not intended for normal household use but that nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops, in light industry and on farms, are within the scope of this standard.

NOTE 101 Examples of such appliances are those used by restaurants and hotels.

As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, in general, it does not take into account

- persons (including children) whose
* physical, sensory or mental capabilities; or
* lack of experience and knowledge prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction;
- children playing with the appliance.

NOTE 102 Attention is drawn to the fact that

- for appliances intended to be used on board ships, additional requirements may be necessary;
- in many countries, additional requirements are specified by the national health authorities, the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour and similar authorities.

NOTE 103 This standard does not apply to

- barbecues for indoor use (IEC 60335-2-9);
- appliances intended to burn charcoal or similar combustible fuels;
- appliances intended exclusively for industrial purposes;
- appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas).
