Scope and object
This part of IEC 60095 is applicable to lead-acid batteries used for starting, lighting and ignition of heavy trucks, commercial vehicles, busses and agricultural trucks.
The object of the present standard is to specify global requirements of the main dimensions of starter batteries for Europe, North America and East Asia.
This International Standard comprises 12 types of "preferred types" of batteries.
The standard specifies dimensions of 4 types of batteries each for the Europe (types A, B, C and D2), North America (4D, 8D, 31T, 31A) and East Asia (E41, F51, G51, H52) regions.
For future new developments of heavy vehicles it is strongly recommended to use only batteries from this standard.
Several other types of batteries exist under the standards of national or regional organisations. They are not included in this International Standard.
