EN 50342-7:2015 (E) 3 European foreword This document (EN 50342-7:2015) has been prepared by CLC/TC 21X "Secondary cells and batteries".

The following dates are fixed:

• latest date by which this document has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement (dop) 2016-06-30 • latest date by which the national standards conflicting with this document have to be withdrawn (dow) 2018-06-30

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights. CENELEC [and/or CEN] shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

It is due to Commission Regulation (EU) No 1103/2010 of 29 November 2010 establishing, pursuant to Directive 2006/66/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, rules as regards capacity labelling of portable secondary (rechargeable) and automotive batteries and accumulators (OJ L 313, 30.11.2010, p. 3–7). It provides precise definitions of the values of accuracy for capacity and cold cranking. For this purpose, the definition of the labelled capacity is clearly identified, and a method of sampling the batteries as well as the degree of compliance is defined. Additionally, the needed marking is described precisely. SIST EN 50342-7:2015

EN 50342-7:2015 (E) 4 1 Scope This European Standard is applicable to lead-acid batteries used primarily as a power source for the starting of internal combustion engines, lighting and ignition of motorcycles, power sport vehicles and all-terrain vehicles up to a maximum capacity of 35 Ah (C10) (further on referred as batteries). The nominal voltage is 12 V or 6 V. Test definitions and criteria in this document are written for batteries with a nominal voltage of 12 V only. For batteries with a nominal voltage of 6 V all voltages have to be divided by two. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies. EN 50342-1, Lead-acid starter batteries – Part 1: General requirements and methods of test EN 61429:1996+A11:1998, Marking of secondary cells and batteries with the international recycling symbol ISO 7000-1135 and indications regarding directives 93/86/EEC and 91/157/EEC IEC 60417, Graphical Symbols for Use on Equipment 3 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply. 3.1 flooded or vented batteries secondary battery having a cover provided with one or more openings through which gaseous products may escape

[SOURCE: EN 50342-1] 3.2 Valve Regulated Lead Acid batteries VRLA valve regulated lead-acid batteries are secondary batteries which are closed under normal conditions but which has an arrangement that allows the escape of gas if the internal pressure exceeds a predetermined value Note 1 to entry: The battery cannot receive addition to the electrolyte. In VRLA batteries the electrolyte is immobilized. [SOURCE: EN 50342-1] 3.3 activation of dry charged batteries batteries for motorcycle application are in many cases delivered

as dry charged batteries. They have to be filled with a defined amount of electrolyte before usage. If no electrolyte is delivered with the battery and no advice is given by the manufacturer, batteries shall be filled with diluted sulfuric acid of density 1,28 kg/l ± 0,01 kg/l at 25°C for flooded batteries and 1,32 kg/l ± 0,01 kg/l at 25 °C for valve regulated batteries Note 1 to entry: Any other manufacturer instruction for handling after filling and before first usage shall be considered.

EN 50342-7:2015 (E) 5 4 General requirements 4.1 Identification and labelling Batteries according to this standard shall bear the following characteristics on at least one of their sides or on the top surface: a) identification of manufacturer or supplier; b) nominal voltage (12 V or 6 V); c) nominal capacity C10 (Ah) (see 5.1); d) nominal cranking current Icc (A) at −18°C (see 5.1); e) six colored symbols as specified in EN 50342–1 Annex A (Safety labelling); f) marking for the separate collection and recycling according to EN 61429; and g) valve regulated batteries shall be marked using the term “VRLA”. Label size: The capacity C10 (Ah) and the cold cranking current Icc (A) shall be displayed on a separate label or as text on a combined label (e.g. together with additional information of the producer or type mark). The size of the label shall be at least 3 % of the largest side of the battery. The character size high should be at least 3 mm. The label must be fixed on one of the four sides or on the lid. A multiple labelling is allowed. Instead of labels silk printing or similar methods for marking can be used as well. Designated marking areas with corresponding sizes should be realized. NOTE

Batteries may be marked with other information such as the filling and charging date. 4.2 Marking of the polarity The batteries shall be marked with signs for both polarities that have to be positioned near to the terminals. The marking of the positive terminals shall take the form of the symbol “+”. It shall be in accordance with IEC 60417, Symbol 5005. The negative terminal shall take the form of the symbol “-“. It shall be in accordance with IEC 60417, Symbol 5006. 5 General test condition 5.1 Characteristics and abbreviations 5.1.1 Capacity The 10 h capacity C10 is the electrical charge measured in Ah that a battery can supply with a discharge current of

at 25°C ± 2°C. C10n is the nominal capacity of a battery indicated by the manufacturer. C10e is the effective capacity of the battery determined by discharge with constant current I10 to U = 10.5 V (see 7.2) SIST EN 50342-7:2015

EN 50342-7:2015 (E) 6 5.1.2 Cold cranking current The cranking current is the discharge current Icc measured in A to be indicated by the manufacturer which a battery can supply at −18 °C according to 7.3. 5.1.3 Charge retention The charge retention is the ability of a battery to maintain the cold cranking performance after open circuit storage fo
