IEC 60335-2-95:2011 deals with the safety of electric drives for garage doors for residential use that open and close in a vertical direction, the rated voltage of the drives being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances. It also covers the hazards associated with the movement of these electrically driven garage doors. This standard also applies to entrapment protection devices for use with drives. It does not cover hazards related to the mechanisms of the door itself. This standard does not apply to drives:
- for rolling shutters, awnings, blinds and similar equipment (IEC 60335-2-97);
- for garage doors for use by more than one household (IEC 60335-2-103);
- for commercial and industrial purposes or
- for drives 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 third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2002 including its Amendment 1 (2004) and its Amendment 2 (2008). It constitutes a technical revision. The principal changes in this edition as compared with the second edition of IEC 60335-2-95 are as follows (minor changes are not listed): Some notes have been converted to normative text (11.7, 20.2, 20.101); A requirement to fit an entrapment protection device has been added (22.109). The attention of National Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselves for conducting new or revised tests. It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this publication be adopted for implementation nationally not earlier than 12 months or later than 36 months from the date of publication.
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60335-1:2010
