Stationary lead-acid batteries - Part 11: Vented types - General requirements and methods of tests
This part of IEC 60896 is applicable to lead-acid cells and batteries which are designed for service in fixed locations (i.e. not habitually to be moved from place to place) and which are permanently connected to the load and to the d.c. power supply. Batteries operating in such applications are called “stationary batteries”. -- Any type or construction of lead-acid battery may be used for stationary battery applications. This part 11 of the standard is applicable to vented types only. -- The object of this standard is to specify general requirements and the main characteristics, together with corresponding test methods associated with all types and construction modes of lead-acid stationary batteries, excluding valve-regulated types. -- Recommendations on the use of tests for stationary battery application are given in Table A.1. Recommendations relating the type of cell or monobloc to the use of tests are given in Table A.2. -- Statements and claims of basic performance data by the manufacturer shall correspond to those tests. -- The tests may also be used for type qualification.
