Safety requirements for secondary batteries and battery installations - Part 4: Valve-regulated lead-acid batteries for use in portable appliances

IEC 62485-4:2015 applies to the safety aspects associated with the accommodation, the arrangements of circuits and the operation of secondary valve-regulated lead-acid cells and batteries in portable appliances. Requirements are specified which oblige the manufacturers of appliances and secondary batteries to prevent the misuse of batteries in the course of operation to provide protective measures avoiding injury to persons in case of battery failure and to provide sufficient information to users. This standard does not apply to secondary cells and batteries containing alkaline or other non-acid electrolytes. This first edition cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC TR 61056-3 published in 1991. It constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the IEC TR 61056-3: a) updating of the requirements, and harmonisation of the text for consistency with the IEC 62485 series.

Sicherheitsanforderungen an Sekundär-Batterien und Batterieanlagen – Teil 4: Verschlossene Bleibatterien zur Anwendung in tragbaren Geräten

Exigences de sécurité pour les batteries d'accumulateurs et les installations de batteries - Partie 4: Batteries au plomb à soupapes pour appareils portables

L'IEC 62485-4:2015 s'applique aux aspects de sécurité liés à l'emplacement, à la disposition des circuits et au fonctionnement des éléments et batteries d'accumulateurs au plomb à soupapes dans les appareils portables. Des exigences sont spécifiées pour que les fabricants d'appareils et de batteries d'accumulateurs soient tenus d'empêcher l'utilisation impropre des batteries au cours de leur fonctionnement, de fournir des mesures de protection pour éviter de blesser les personnes en cas de défaillance de la batterie et de fournir des informations suffisantes aux utilisateurs. La présente norme ne s'applique pas aux éléments et aux batteries d'accumulateurs alcalins et autres accumulateurs à électrolytes non acide. Cette première édition annule et remplace la première édition de l'IEC TR 61056-3, parue en 1991. Cette édition constitue une révision technique. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'IEC TR 61056-3: a) mise à jour des exigences et une harmonisation du texte en cohérence avec la série IEC 62485.

Varnostne zahteve za sekundarne baterije in baterijske naprave - 4. del: Z ventili regulirane svinčeve baterije za prenosne aparate

Ta del standarda IEC 62485 se uporablja za varnostne vidike, povezane z prilagajanjem postavitve, razporeditvijo tokokrogov ter delovanjem sekundarnih z ventili reguliranih svinčenih celic in baterij za prenosne aparate. Določene so zahteve, ki proizvajalce aparatov in sekundarnih baterij zavezujejo k preprečevanju nepravilne uporabe baterij med njihovim delovanjem, zagotavljanju zaščitnih ukrepov, namenjenih preprečevanju telesnih poškodb v primeru okvare baterij, ter zagotavljanju zadostnih informacij uporabnikom.
Ta standard se ne uporablja za sekundarne celice in baterije, ki vsebujejo alkalne ali druge nekislinske elektrolite.
