This part of IEC 60952 series defines the physical design, construction and material requirements for nickel-cadmium and lead-acid aircraft batteries containing vented or valveregulated cells or monoblocs. The batteries are used for both general purposes and specific aerospace applications. The specific topics addressed in this part serve to establish acceptable quality standards required to qualify a battery as airworthy as defined in Clause 3 of IEC 60952-1:2013. A preferred range of aircraft batteries is specified in Annex A, but this part of IEC 60952 series may be used for other battery sizes, arrangements and ratings. For particular applications, other design requirements may be stipulated. These will be in addition to the requirements of this part and will be covered by specific documents. It is recognised that additional data may be required by other organisations (national standards bodies, AECMA, SAE, etc.). The present standard can be used as a framework to devise tests for generation of the required data.
