Lead-acid starter batteries - Part 4: Dimensions of batteries for heavy vehicles

This document is applicable to lead-acid batteries used for heavy vehicles. The object of this document is to specify the European requirements of the main dimensions of starter batteries. For new and future developments of the above applications, it is expected that only batteries from the “Preferred Types” series be used. Batteries of the series of “Other Types” exist under several national standards. They have been transferred from the previous standard EN 60095 4. The preferred types A, B and C are newly introduced and correspond closely to the types D4, D5 and D6 with some differences in tolerances and dimensions.

Batteries d'accumulateurs de démarrage au plomb - Partie 4: Dimensions des batteries pour poids lourds

Le présent document est applicable aux batteries d’accumulateurs au plomb utilisées pour les poids lourds. Le présent document a pour objet de spécifier les exigences européennes des dimensions principales des batteries de démarrage. Pour les nouveaux développements et les évolutions futures des applications mentionnées ci-dessus, il est attendu que seules les batteries d’accumulateurs des séries de "types préférentiels" soient utilisées. Des batteries d'accumulateurs des séries “Autres types” existent dans plusieurs normes nationales. Elles ont été reprises de l’ancienne norme EN 60095 4. Les types préférentiels A, B et C ont été nouvellement intégrés et sont très proches des types D4, D5 et D6 avec quelques différences en ce qui concerne les tolérances et les dimensions.
