Lead-acid traction batteries - Part 2: Dimensions of cells and terminals and marking of polarity on cells

This part of IEC 60254 is applicable to lead-acid traction batteries used as power sources for electric propulsion. The object of the present standard is to specify: - the maximum external (overall) dimensions of traction battery cells, that is, the width, the height and the length; - the form of the marking of traction battery cell polarity and dimensions of corresponding symbols; - the basic dimensions of some commonly used traction battery terminals designed to connect output cables to the battery; - the dimensions of cells commonly used in Asia and North America. This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition published in 1997 and its Amendment 1 (2000). It constitutes a technical revision. The main modification concerns the introduction of new dimensions.

Blei-Antriebsbatterien - Teil 2: Maße von Zellen und Endpolen und Kennzeichnung der Polarität auf Zellen

Batteries d'accumulateurs de traction au plomb - Partie 2: Dimensions des éléments et des bornes et indication de la polarité sur les éléments

La présente partie de la CEI 60254 concerne les batteries d'accumulateurs de traction au plomb utilisées comme source d'énergie pour la propulsion électrique. La présente norme a pour objet de spécifier: - l'encombrement maximal des éléments des batteries de traction, c'est-à-dire la hauteur, la largeur et la longueur; - la réalisation du marquage de la polarité sur les éléments des batteries de traction et les dimensions des symboles correspondants; - les dimensions de base des bornes des batteries de traction d'usage courant prévues pour le raccordement des câbles de sortie à la batterie. Cette quatrième édition annule et remplace la troisième édition parue en 1997 et son Amendement 1 (2000). Elle constitue une révision.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.
