ANSI Standard issued for robotic mowers

September 18, 2019 -  By

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) issued the first-ever standard for robotic, battery-powered and electrical lawn mowers, as announced by the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI).

According to a recent study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc., the global robotic mower market is expected to grow by nearly 22 percent in the next six years.

The standard was approved on Sept 5, and is expected to be published this fall. Public input through consumers, manufacturers and commercial equipment users helped develop this new standard.

The ANSI/OPEI robotic mower standard is “ANSI/OPEI 60335-2-107-2019 (Standard) for Outdoor Power Equipment – Household and similar electrical appliances – Safety – Part 2-107: Particular requirements for robotic battery-powered electrical lawnmowers (national adoption with modifications of IEC 60335-2-107).”

ANSI is the primary organization for fostering the development of technology standards in the United States. ANSI works with industry groups and is the U.S. member of the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

Kris Kiser, president and CEO of OPEI, says he expects robotic mower manufacturers will showcase their products at GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Ky., coming up next month, Oct. 16-18.

“The show is the largest showcase of outdoor power equipment technology and software in the country, and it’s the best place for landscapers and dealers to see first-hand what’s coming to market, such as the latest in robotic mower technology and technological innovations in the industry,” he says.
