Reference EN 50144-1:1998/A2:2003
Title Safety of hand-held electric motor operated tools - Part 1: General requirements
Project Number 15118
Abstract/Scope This standard applies to hand-held motor operated or magnetically driven tools intended for indoor or outdoor use designed for use by one person. This standard applies to a.c. tools having any frequency and d.c. tools. It does not apply to: battery operated tools; tools used for preparing or processing food; tools used in explosive atmospheres. This standard covers tools which can be used in a fixed support. Unless the requirement for such a support is given in a relevant Part 2, this standard alone will not be sufficient to ensure that the combination of tool and support is adequate. Tools with an electric heating element are within the scope of this standard. They should also comply with relevant Parts of EN 60335. Tools incorporating electronics components are within the scope of this standard and covered by annex B
