This Standard applies to hand-held portable electric tools as defined in Clause 4.1, which are intended for electrical operation at low voltage operating at not more than 60 Hz.
For the purpose of this Standard, a hand-held portable electric tool is called a 'tool' except where such term is associated with an implement required to remove covers, brush caps and the like which guard live parts.
This Standard does not deal with separate motors with or without capacitors, or with tools covered by separate Standards, or with equipment intended for the control of electric motors other than equipment which is built into the tool.
This standard does not apply to hand-held motor-operated electric tools within the scope of the AS/NZS 60745 series of standards after the dates specified in the parts 2 of that series.
