BS IEC 60095-2:2021 pdf download – Lead-acid starter batteries Part 2: Dimensions of batteries and dimensions and marking of terminals
4.3.1 Recycling of lead
The batteries shall be marked with the symbols for recycling and separate collection according to IEC 60095-1 .
4.3.2 Recycling of plastic material
Injection moulded battery components need to be marked according to ISO 1 1 469 and ISO 1 043-1 . The marking shall be placed on the bottom of the battery container or on one short
side near the ledge.
According to ISO 1 1 469 and ISO 1 043-1 the minimum marking for polypropylene-polyethylene copolymer is >PP< or >PP/PE<.
In addition it is possible to show the recycling symbol with number 7 (Unicode character ‘RECYCLING SYMBOL FOR TYPE-7 PLASTICS’ (U+2679) according to ISO/IEC 1 0646) and
the term “Other”.
The recommended thickness is (0,3 ± 0,1 ) mm. The height of the marking characters shall be between 3 mm and 7 mm.
An example for this marking is shown in Figure 2.
4.4 Dimensions and design
All dimensions given in this document correspond to a temperature of 20 °C of the polypropylene-polyethylene copolymer.
Details of the design that are not indicated in the generic drawings need to be chosen appropriately.
The generic drawings in this document are possible examples only. Especially the design of the lid, handles, ribs, ledges and vent caps are not mandatory in total.
4.5 Dimensions of tapered battery terminals
The dimensions of the tapered positive and negative terminal shall be according to Figure 3.
5 Recommended types used in Europe (EU)
For new battery developments, only the recommended series shall be used.
Clause 5 specifies:
– the main dimensions of starter batteries of the preferred LN series;
– the location of the positive and negative terminals with respect to the fastening system;
– the dimensions of tapered terminals of starter batteries.
5.2 Main dimensions of batteries
The main dimensions of the batteries of the LN series are shown in Table 1 and Figure 4,Figure 5, Figure 6 and Figure 7.
NOTE The schematic drawings do not show every design detail of the battery.
The following symbols are used:
Batteries with a weight less than or equal to 20 kg may be designed without, with one, or with two handles. Batteries with a weight of more than 20 kg shall have two handles.
5.3.2 Mounting of handles
If the batteries have handles, the handles shall be integrated in the lid (see Figure 4).
NOTE The handle design shown on all the pages of this document is for information only. It is left to the battery manufacturer to propose a design in accordance with this document with respect to overall dimensions.
5.4 Mounting of batteries
5.4.1 General Starter batteries in accordance with the LN series may be fixed to the vehicles either:
– by a bottom hold-down device of the long side, – by a bottom hold-down device of the short side, or
– by means of a hold-down device engaging with the upper part of the battery (for example, a metal frame), connected to the top clamping area (see Figure 4 and Figure 7). In either case, these batteries shall have top clamping areas on the long sides. The hold-down clamps of support shall match with the ledges and notches to provide secure fastening in all directions.
5.4.2 Dimensions and arrangement of ledges and notches All batteries of the LN series shall have ledges for fastening over the length of all sides as an integral part of the battery container and allowing the battery to be fixed by means of the bottom of the container.
The positions and dimensions of ledges and notches shall be according to Figure 6 and Figure 7. The profile of the ledges shall be in accordance with Figure 8 and Figure 9. The length of the ledges on the rear side of the battery shall be reduced by 20 mm from both ends compared to the one on the front side (see Figure 4). The hold-down clamps of the support shall match with the ledges and the notches to provide secure fastening in either direction. To allow a symmetrical rotation for fastening the opposite ledges contain an equal number of notches. To secure correct positioning of the battery on the support the ledges shall have 5 notches on the long sides and 3 notches on the short sides.BS IEC 60095-2 pdf download.
