    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Applies to lead-acid cells and batteries which are designed for service in fixed locations (i.e. not habitually to be moved from place to place) and which are permanently connected to the load and to the d.c. power supply.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This part of IEC 60896 is applicable to lead-acid cells and batteries which are designed for service in fixed locations (i.e. not habitually to be moved from place to place) and which are permanently connected to the load and to the d.c. power supply. Batteries operating in such applications are called \'stationary batteries\'. Any type or construction of lead-acid battery may be used for stationary battery applications. This part 11 of the standard is applicable to vented types only. This first edition of IEC 60896-11 cancels and replaces IEC 60896-1 (first edition) published in 1987 and its amendments 1 (1988) and 2 (1990), and constitutes a technical revision.
