Foreword

The text of document 116/168/FDIS, future edition 1 of IEC 62841-3-1, prepared by IEC/TC 116

"Safety of motor-operated electric tools" was submitted to the IEC-CENELEC parallel vote and

approved by CENELEC as EN 62841-3-1:2014.

A draft amendment, which covers common modifications to IEC 62841-3-1:2014, was prepared by

CLC/TC 116 "Safety of motor-operated electric tools" and approved by CENELEC.
The following dates are fixed:
(dop) 2015-05-19
• latest date by which this document
has to be implemented at national
level by publication of an identical
national standard or by endorsement
• latest date by which the national (dow) 2018-05-19
standards conflicting with this
document have to be withdrawn
EN 62841-3-1:2014 supersedes EN 61029-2-1:2012.
This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CENELEC by the European

Commission and the European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of

EU Directive(s).

For the relationship with EU Directive(s) see informative Annex ZZ, which is an integral part of this

document.

Subclauses, tables and figures which are additional to those in Part 1 are numbered starting from 101.

This European Standard is divided into four parts:

Part 1: General requirements which are common to most electric motor operated tools (for the

purpose of this standard referred to simply as tools) which could come within the scope of

this standard;

Part 2, 3 or 4: Requirements for particular types of tools which either supplement or modify the

requirements given in Part 1 to account for the particular hazards and characteristics of

these specific tools.

This Part 3-1 is to be used in conjunction with EN 62841-1:201X . When this standard states "addition",

"modification" or "replacement", the relevant text in Part 1 is to be adapted accordingly.

Compliance with the clauses of Part 1 together with this Part 3-1 provides one means of conforming with the

essential health and safety requirements of the Directive concerned.

Warning: Other requirements and other EU Directives can be applicable to the products falling within the

scope of this standard.
This European Standard follows the overall requirements of EN ISO 12100.
NOTE In this standard the following print types are used:
- requirements proper; in roman type
- test specifications: in italic type;
- explanatory matter: in smaller roman type.

Words in bold in the text are defined in Clause 3. When a definition concerns an adjective, the adjective and the associated noun are

also in bold.

Part 3-1: Particular requirements for transportable table saws
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 62841-3-1 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 116:

Safety of motor-operated electric tools.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
116/168/FDIS 116/182/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

This Part 3-1 is to be used in conjunction with the first edition of IEC 62841-1 (2014).

This Part 3-1 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 62841-1, so as to

convert it into the IEC Standard: Particular requirements for transportable table saws.

Where a particular subclause of Part 1 is not mentioned in this Part 3-1, that subclause

applies as far as reasonable. Where this standard states “addition”, “modification” or

“replacement”, the relevant text in Part 1 is to be adapted accordingly.
The following print types are used:
– requirements: in roman type;
– test specifications: in italic type;
– notes: in small roman type.
The terms defined in Clause 3 are printed in bold typeface.

Subclauses, notes and figures which are additional to those in Part 1 are numbered starting

from 101.

A list of all parts of the IEC 62841 series, under the general title: Electric motor-operated

hand-held tools, transportable tools and lawn and garden machinery – Safety, can be found

on the IEC website.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

the stability date indicated on the IEC web site under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data

related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

NOTE 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.

– 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.

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.

NOTE 101 Saws designed for use with abrasive wheels as cut-off machines are covered by IEC 62841-3-10.
