IEC 60335-2-54:2022

Title
Abstract

IEC 60335-2-54:2022 deals with the safety of electric cleaning appliances for household use that are intended for cleaning surfaces by using liquid cleansing agents or steam, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V including direct current (DC) supplied appliances and battery-operated appliances. It also covers wallpaper strippers and surface cleaning appliances incorporating heating elements or means for pressurizing the liquid container.
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.
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, and similar authorities.
This standard does not apply to
– floor treatment and wet scrubbing machines (IEC 60335-2-10);
– cleaning appliances that are permanently fixed to a building;
– cleaning appliances covered by IEC 60335-2-79, namely those having a
• pressure exceeding 2,5 MPa;
• pressurised volume over 5 l;
• product of pressure (in MPa) and container volume (in l) exceeding 5;
• liquid temperature exceeding 160 °C;
• rated power input exceeding 3 500 W;
– cleaning appliances intended for commercial or industrial use;
– 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);
– fabric steamers (IEC 60335-2-85).
This fifth edition cancels and replaces the fourth edition published in 2008, Amendment 1: 2015 and Amendment 2: 2019. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) alignment with IEC 60335-1:2020;
b) conversion of some notes to normative text (Clause 1, 15.2, 21.103, 21.105, 22.103);
c) addition of external accessible surface temperature limits (3.6.102, 3.6.103, 7.1, 11.3, 11.8)
d) exception for hand-held appliances (20.1);
This part 2 is to be used in conjunction with the latest edition of IEC 60335-1 and its amendments unless that edition precludes it; in that case, the latest edition that does not preclude it is used. It was established on the basis of the sixth edition (2020) of that standard.
