Energy performance of large battery charger systems
|Publication Date:||1 January 2016|
This Standard specifies the test method for measuring and reporting the energy performance of large battery charger systems. Note: This Standard is technology neutral. 1.2 This Standard applies to large battery charger systems such as forklifts, autoettes, electric personal assistive mobility devices, and low speed vehicles that are battery charger systems with a rated input power of more than 2 kW, except those
a) used to charge a motor vehicle that is powered by an electric motor drawing current from rechargeable storage batteries, fuel cells, or other portable sources of electrical current, and which may include a nonelectrical source of power designed to charge batteries and components thereof;
b) used to charge a battery or batteries in an illuminated exit sign;
c) with input that is three phase of line-to-line 300 volts root mean square (rms) or more and is designed for a stationary power application;
d) that are battery analyzers;
e) that are uninterruptible power systems as defined by IEC 62040-3; or
f) that are for golf carts.
In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.
Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.
Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or and may be written as requirements.
Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
The values given in SI units are the units of record for the purposes of this Standard. The values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.
