This part of the IEC 62485 applies to stationary secondary batteries and battery installations with a maximum voltage of DC 1 500 V (nominal) and describes the principal measures for protections against hazards generated from:
- gas emission,
This International Standard provides requirements on safety aspects associated with the erection, use, inspection, maintenance and disposal.
It covers lead-acid and NiCd / NiMH batteries.
Examples for the main applications are:
- power station operation,
- central emergency lighting and alarm systems,
- uninterruptible power supplies,
- stationary engine starting,
- photovoltaic systems.
