Draft Scope/Description:

IEC 60335-2-79:2016 deals with the safety of high-pressure cleaners without traction drive, intended for household and commercial indoor or outdoor use, having a rated pressure not less than 2,5 MPa and not exceeding 35 MPa. It also applies to steam cleaners and those parts of hot water high pressure cleaners incorporating a steam stage which have a capacity not exceeding 100 l, a rated pressure not exceeding 2,5 MPa and a product of capacity and rated pressure not exceeding 5 MPa·l. They are not equipped with a 
traction drive.

The following power systems of the drive for the high pressure pump are covered: 
- mains powered motors up to a rated voltage of 250 V for single-phase machines and 480 V for other machines, 
- battery-operated motors, 
- internal combustion engines, 
- hydraulic or pneumatic motors. This standard does not apply to: 
- high pressure water jet machines having a rated pressure exceeding 35 MPa; 
- steam cleaners intended for domestic use; 
- hand-held and transportable motor-operated electric tools; 
- appliances for medical purposes; 
- agricultural sprayers; 
- non-liquid, solid abrasive cleaners; 
- machines designed to be part of a production process;
