Voluntary Standards Cover the Spectrum: From Pool Heaters to Robotic Powered Electrical Lawnmowers


In an effort to communicate the vital role that standards play in daily life, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) publishes snapshots of the diverse standards initiatives undertaken in the global and national standards arena, many of which are performed by ANSI members and ANSI-accredited standards developers. Two of the latest selections follow:

Pool Heaters

Summertime is also a key season to properly maintain your yard, which includes mowing the lawn. A new standard helps making lawn-mowing less of a chore. An ANS on requirements for robotic battery powered electrical lawnmowers has been developed by the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), an ANSI member and accredited standards developer.

ANSI/OPEI 60335-2-107-2020, Household And Similar Electrical Appliances - Safety - Part 2-107: Particular Requirements For Robotic Battery Powered Electrical Lawnmowers, specifies safety requirements and their verification for the design and construction of robotic battery powered electrical rotary lawnmowers. This standard also provides requirements for the safety of mains powered charging stations and signal sources for perimeter delimiters.
