Description of New/Revised Technical Requirements
ClauseVerdictComment
----New requirement for types of classes based on installation of the product.
6.1 Added;

Stationary appliances shall be Class I.
All other appliances shall be Class I, Class II, or Class III.
----New requirements and test for manual release mechanisms.
7.2A Where required by Clause 22.109B.3, the actuating member of the release shall be marked “Release” or the equivalent, with an indication of the direction in which force must be applied to effect the release.
22.109B New section added;
22.109B.1 Appliances shall be provided with a reliable and readily operable manual release mechanism that functions independently of the connection of the machines to the supply.

Compliance is checked by inspection and by the criteria specified in Clauses 22.109B.2 to 22.109B.4.
22.109B.2 The actuating member by which the release is operated shall be located so that it will be readily accessible from either side or either end of the appliance.

NOTE: In determining whether or not the accessibility of the actuating member is acceptable, consideration is given to the size and type of the machine. In the case of a small rotary ironer, in which the pressure of the shoe against the roll is accomplished by manual means only, an operating member at one end is considered to comply with the intent of this requirement.
22.109B.3 Unless the construction and location of the actuating member are such that its function is entirely obvious (i.e., the handle, lever, or the like is such that it is plainly evident that it is the actuating member of the release), the actuating member shall be marked in accordance with Clause 7.2A.
22.109B.4 A force of 44 N applied to the actuating member in the intended manner shall be sufficient to trip the release mechanism under any condition of operation of the machine. If the intended manner is a push force, the force shall be applied by means of test probe 11 of IEC 61032. If it is a pull force, it shall be applied by a suitable means, such as a suction cup or hook, so that the test results are not affected.
----New requirement that socket outlets be provided on stationary equipment only.
22.52 New clause added;

Socket outlets shall be provided on stationary appliances only.
----New requirements for rotary ironers
22.101 Rotary ironers shall be constructed so that the feed aperture has a width not exceeding 8 mm during operation and a width of at least 20 mm when the surfaces are fully separated.

Rotary ironers having surfaces that are lowered and raised by a motor, shall be constructed so that the surfaces separate as soon as the closing force is released. It shall be possible to separate the surfaces when the supply mains is interrupted.
22.108 Rotary ironers shall be constructed so that when the means for separating the surfaces is
actuated, the roller shall stop before it has rotated more than 10 mm.

Rotary ironers having surfaces that are lowered and raised by a motor shall be
constructed so that the surfaces separate as soon as the closing force is released.

Compliance is checked by the following test.

The appliance is supplied at rated voltage with the surfaces in the closed position. The
means for separating the surfaces is then actuated. The surfaces shall separate as soon
as the closing force is released and the roller shall stop before it has rotated more than 10
mm.

If compliance relies on the operation of an electronic circuit, the appliance is supplied at
rated voltage with the surfaces in the closed position and is further tested as follows.

The electromagnetic phenomena test of 19.11.4.2 and 19.11.4.5 are applied in turn.
During application of the electromagnetic phenomena tests, the means for separating the
surfaces is actuated. The surfaces shall immediately separate and the roller shall stop
before it has rotated more than 10 mm.

The fault conditions in a) to g) of 19.11.2 are applied one at a time to the electronic
circuit
. During application of each of the fault conditions, the means for separating the
surfaces is actuated. The surfaces shall immediately separate and the roller shall stop
before it has rotated more than 10 mm.

If the electronic circuit is programmable, the software shall contain measures to control
the fault/error conditions specified in Table R.1 and is evaluated in accordance with the
relevant requirements of Annex R.
----New requirements for ironing presses intended for direct operation by both hands.
22.102 Ironing presses shall be constructed so that the pressing surfaces are held in contact with
each other by using a hand, elbow, knee or foot and so that they separate when the
closing force is released.

The pressing surfaces of ironing presses, intended for direct operation by both hands, may
be locked in contact with each other and shall be constructed so that the pressing surfaces
can be separated without using the hands, even when the supply mains is interrupted.

Compliance is checked by inspection and by manual test.
22.109 The pressing surfaces of ironing presses, intended for direct operation by both hands,
may be locked in contact with each other provided that the heating elements are
automatically switched off within 15 s by non-self-resetting means and the pressing
surfaces separate when the locking means is released.

Compliance is checked by the following test.

The appliance is supplied at rated voltage with the surfaces locked in contact with each
other. When the locking means is released, the surfaces shall immediately separate and
the heating elements shall automatically be switched off within 15 s by a non-self-resetting
means.

If compliance relies on the operation of an electronic circuit, the appliance is supplied at
rated voltage with the surfaces locked in contact with each other and is subjected to the
following tests. The electromagnetic phenomena test of 19.11.4.2 and 19.11.4.5 are
applied in turn. During application of the electromagnetic phenomena tests, the locking
means is released. The surfaces shall immediately separate and the heating elements
shall automatically be switched off within 15 s by a non-self-resetting means.

The fault conditions in a) to g) of 19.11.2 are applied one at a time to the electronic
circuit
. During application of each of the fault conditions, the locking means is released.
The surfaces shall immediately separate and the heating elements shall automatically be
switched off within 15 s by a non-self-resetting means.

If the electronic circuit is programmable, the software shall contain measures to control
the fault/error conditions specified in Table R.1 and is evaluated in accordance with the
relevant requirements of Annex R.
----New requirement for pilot lights.
22.109A If switches are used to interrupt motor circuits without interrupting heater circuits, a pilot light shall be provided indicating that the heater is in the “on” position. The pilot light shall not cycle with a heater-element thermostat, temperature limiter, or thermal cut-out.

Compliance is checked by inspection.
----New requirement for supply cord types and foot switch cord types and ampacity.
25.7 Supply cords for Class I and Class II products and flexible cords used to connect a foot switch to an appliance shall be suitable for hard usage or extra-hard usage in accordance with Table 11 of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I.

NOTE: Examples of suitable cords for compliance with this clause are types SJ and SJT flexible cords
25.8DV.1.1 Ampacities of flexible cords used to connect a foot switch to an appliance shall not be less than the current through the cord when the switch is in use in normal operation.
----New requirement for programmable electronic circuits – Annex R.
R.2.2.5 For programmable electronic circuits with functions requiring software incorporating measures to control the fault/error conditions specified in Table R.1 or Table R.2, detection of a fault/error shall occur before compliance with Clauses 19, 22.108 and 22.109 is impaired.
R.2.2.9 The software and safety-related hardware under its control shall be initialized and shall terminate before compliance with Clauses 19, 22.108 and 22.109 is impaired.
