This document specifies methods for the clear identification of secondary cells, batteries,
battery modules and monoblocs according to their chemistry (electrochemical storage
technology).
The markings described in this document are applicable for secondary cells, batteries, battery
modules and monoblocs with a volume of more than 900 cm3.
The marking of the chemistry is useful for the installation, operation and decommissioning
phases of battery life.
Many recycling processes are chemistry specific, thus undesired events can occur when a
battery which is not of the appropriate chemistry enters a given recycling process. In order to
ensure safe handling during sorting and recycling processes, therefore, the battery is marked
so as to identify its chemistry.
This document defines the conditions of utilization of the markings indicating the chemistry of
these secondary batteries.
The details of markings and their application are defined in this document.
NOTE Nothing in this document precludes the marking of batteries with recycling and chemistry symbols required
by state, federal, national or regional laws or regulations or with a seal under license by a national recycling
program.

This European Standard specifies rechargeable lead acid and NiCd-batteries for 110 V voltage auxiliary power supply system for railway vehicles. This European Standard may be applied to other rolling stock types (e.g. light rail vehicles, tramways, metros…) if these are not in the scope of another specific standard. Others technologies like NiMh or Lithium are not covered by this standard at present. This European Standard focuses on:
- the description of mechanical interfaces: dimensions of the cells or monobloc batteries, main terminals and preferred sizes of the mounting space of the battery systems for lead acid batteries,
- the description of mechanical interfaces: dimensions of the trays and main terminals for NiCd batteries (as they have different characteristics depending on the technology),
- description of electrical interfaces: capacity, voltage and charging characteristic. This European Standard restricts the variety of different types provided by EN 60254 and EN 60896 for lead
acid batteries and defines the use of cells compliant to EN 60623 and EN 62259 for NiCd-Batteries. The main objective of this standard is to achieve interchangeability of the battery cells and monobloc for lead acid batteries and the interchangeability of the battery trays for NiCd batteries.
