Lead-acid traction batteries – Part 2: Dimensions of cells and terminals and marking of polarity on cells
|Publication Date:||1 February 2008|
|ICS Code (Acid secondary cells and batteries):||29.220.20|
Scope and object
This part of IEC 60254 is applicable to lead-acid traction batteries used as power sources for electric propulsion.
The object of the present standard is to specify:
- the maximum external (overall) dimensions of traction battery cells, that is, the width, the height and the length;
- the form of the marking of traction battery cell polarity and dimensions of corresponding symbols;
- the basic dimensions of some commonly used traction battery terminals designed to connect output cables to the battery;
- the dimensions of cells commonly used in Asia and North America.
