This International Standard specifies marking, tests and requirements for lithium secondary single cells 10 and batteries used in Industrial Applications including Stationary applications. 11
When there exists an IEC standard specifying test conditions and requirements for cells used in special 12 applications and which is in conflict with this standard, the former shall take precedence. (E.g. IEC 13 62660: Road Vehicles). 14
The following are some examples of applications that utilize the cells and batteries under the scope of 15 this standard. 16
Stationary applications: telecom, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), electrical energy storage system, 17 utility switching, emergency power and similar applications. Motive applications: fork-lift truck, golf cart, 18 AGV, railway, and marine, excluding road vehicles.Since this standard covers batteries for various 19 industrial applications, it includes those requirements, which are common to the various applications. 20
This standard applies to cells and batteries. If the battery is divided into smaller units, the smaller unit 21 can be tested as the representative of the battery. The manufacturer shall clearly declare the tested unit. 22 The manufacturer may add functions, which are present in the final battery to the tested unit.
