IEC 62841-2-4 Testing

Electric motor-operated hand-held tools, transportable tools and lawn and garden machinery – Safety – Part 2-4: hand-held sanders and polishers other than disc type

IEC 62841-2-4 Abstract:

IEC 62841 2 4 and EN 62841 2 4 testing applies to hand-held sanders and polishers with the exception of disc-type tools covered by IEC 62841-2-3. Tools covered by this standard include but are not limited to belt sanders, drum sanders or polishers, reciprocating sanders or polishers, orbital sanders or polishers and random orbit sanders or polishers. The rated voltage is not more than 250 V for single-phase A.C. or D.C. tools, and 480 V for three-phase A.C. tools. The rated input is not more than 3 700 W.

IEC 62841-2-4 compliance testing deals with the hazards presented by tools which are encountered by all persons in the normal use and reasonably foreseeable misuse of the tools. Hand-held electric tools, which can be mounted on a support or working stand for use as fixed tools without any alteration of the tool itself, are within the scope of this standard and such combination of a hand-held tool and a support is considered to be a transportable tool and thus covered.
