Refrigerators, Freezers, Ice makers etc. are used nearly at every place globally. Refrigerators, Freezers& ice making products face a changing landscape with increased demands for energy efficiency and transition to low global warming potential refrigerants. We ITC India provide the safety testing as per standard IEC 60335-2-24, as well asenergy efficiency.
What is IEC 60335-2-24?
This International Standard deals with the safety of therefrigerating appliances for household and similar use, ice-makers incorporating a motor-compressor and ice-makers intended to be incorporated in frozen food storage compartments, refrigerating appliances and ice-makersfor use in camping, touring caravans and boats for leisure purposes, their rated voltagebeing not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances, 480 V for other appliances and 24 V d.c. for appliances when battery operated.
