Household and similar electrical appliances – Safety

IEC 60335-2-109:2023 deals with the safety of UV radiation water treatment appliances for household and similar use, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances including direct current (DC) supplied appliances and battery-operated appliances. Appliances not intended for normal household use but that nevertheless can be a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops and in light industry and farms, are within the scope of this standard.
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
– pumps (IEC 60335-2-41);
– luminaires for aquariums (IEC 60598-2-11);
– luminaires for swimming pools and similar applications (IEC 60598-2-18);
– appliances intended exclusively for professional 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).
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2010, Amendment 1:2013 and Amendment 2:2016. 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) modification or conversion of some notes to normative text (Clause 1, 6.2, 22.102);
c) introduction of IEC 60417 symbol for maximum operating depth (7.1, 7.6, 7.12.1);
d) addition of external accessible surface temperature limits (11.3, 11.8);
e) clarification of requirements for remote operation (22.40, 22.49, 22.51);
f) the requirements to emit harmful radiation are deleted, because they are covered in Part 1 (Clause 32).
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.
