Over deze norm
This standard applies to equipment for arc welding and allied processes designed for use in industrial and domestic establishments. Included are welding power sources, wire feeders and ancillary equipment, e.g. torches, water coolers and arc striking and stabilising devices. The frequency range covered is 0 Hz to 300 GHz. The Council Directive 73/23/EEC, Article 2, stipulates that the Member States take all appropriate measures to ensure that electrical equipment may be placed on the market only if, having been constructed in accordance with good engineering practice in safety matters in force in the Community, it does not endanger the safety of persons, domestic animals or property when properly installed and maintained and used in applications for which is was made. The principal elements of those safety objectives are listed in Annex I Clause 2.b. This document may be used for demonstration of compliance to the Council Directive with reference to human exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF). There are additional requirements covered by Article 2 and Annex I Clause 2.b, which are not included in this document. The Council Recommendation 1999/519/EC provides basic restrictions and derived reference levels for exposure of the general public. This document may be used for demonstration of equipment compliance to the Council Recommendation on this basis, but there may be additional specific national or international requirements which are not included. The ICNIRP guidelines, on limits of exposure to static magnetic fields as well as for limiting exposure in time-varying electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields, provide basic restrictions and derived reference levels for both occupational and general exposure. This document may be used for demonstration of equipment compliance to ICNIRP guidelines on this basis, but there may be additional national or international requirements which are not included. Other standards can apply to products covered by this document. In particular this document is not designed to evaluate the electromagnetic compatibility with other equipment; nor does it reflect any product safety requirements other than those specifically related to human exposure to electromagnetic fields. It is also possible to use this document as a basis to demonstrate compliance to other national and international guidelines or requirements with regard to human exposure from EMF. For example Directive 2004/40/EC on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to the risks arising from physical agents (electromagnetic fields). In these cases, other restrictions and levels than those referenced above may be used.
