    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies safety requirements, methods of specifying performance and methods of test for valve-regulated, stationary, lead-acid batteries. It comprises IEC 60896-2 Stationary lead-acid batteries - General requirements and methods of test, Part 2: Valve-regulated types subject to variations for conditions in Australia and New Zealand.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This part of IEC 896 applies to valve regulated stationary lead-acid cells and batteries for service in a fixed location (i.e. not habitually to be moved from place to place) and permanently connected to a load and to a d.c. power supply.NOTES1 Typical applications for stationary batteries, with recommended tests are shown in table 2.2 Different types of construction of lead-acid cell or battery may be used for stationary battery applications. Typical types and constructions are given in IEC 896-1 which specifies general requirements and test methods for vented types of stationary lead-acid cells and batteries.The object of this part of IEC 896 is to specify the main characteristics and corresponding test methods associated with all types and construction of valve regulated stationary lead-acid cells and batteries and their related applications. The tests may be used for type qualification, product acceptance, and as a functional test during service. The tests in the informative annexes A, B, C, and D, are not mature and are still under development. As a consequence the tests are not in common use, and are subject to agreement between the user and the supplier.NOTE Table 2 details the test relevant to the various stationary battery applications. Some tests are valid for certain applications only. Recommendations relating the type of cell or monobloc battery with the use of the tests are given in table 3.
