IEC 62841-3-1:2014 applies to transportable table saws with:
- a toothed single blade; or
- stacked blades that cut a single groove or slot; or
- a moulding head cutter intended for cutting wood and analogous materials, plastics and nonferrous metals except magnesium with a saw blade diameter between 105 mm and 315 mm, which hereinafter may simply be referred to as saw or tool. 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 is given in Annex K. 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. This standard does not apply to table saws intended to cut other metals, such as magnesium, steel and iron. This standard does not apply to table saws with an automatic feeding device. This standard does not apply to saws designed for use with abrasive wheels. This standard does not apply to table saws with more than one spindle such as for a scoring blade. 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 36 months from the date of publication.
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 62841-1:2014.
