IEC 62841-3-13:2017 applies to transportable drills, with manually fed axial movement of the spindle, having a maximum chuck capacity of 13 mm. 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. The limits for the applicability of this standard for battery tools are given in K.1 and L.1. This standard 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 by the relevant Part 3.
Transportable drills are also known as bench drills or drill presses.
This part of IEC 62841 does not apply to stationary drilling machines.
This part of IEC 62841 does not apply to radial arm drills.
This part of IEC 62841 does not apply to magnetic drill stands and drill motors.
This Part 3-13 is to be used in conjunction with the first edition of IEC 62841-1:2014.
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.
