Stationary lead-acid batteries - Part 21: Valve regulated types - Methods of test
This part of IEC 60896 applies to all stationary lead-acid cells and monobloc batteries of the valve regulated type for float charge applications, (i.e. permanently connected to a load and to a d.c. power supply), in a static location (i.e. not generally intended to be moved from place to place) and incorporated into stationary equipment or installed in battery rooms for use in telecom, uninterruptible power supply (UPS), utility switching, emergency power or similar applications. -- The objective of this part of IEC 60896 is to specify the methods of test for all types and construction of valve regulated stationary lead acid cells and monobloc batteries used in standby power applications. -- This part of IEC 60896 does not apply to lead-acid cells and monobloc batteries used for vehicle engine starting applications (IEC 60095 series), solar photovoltaic energy systems (IEC 61427), or general purpose applications (IEC 61056 series).
