Stationary Lead Acid Battery

IEC 60896-22 is applicable to:-

  1. All stationary Lead-acid cells
  2. Monobloc batteries of the valve-regulated type
  • For Float charge application: They can be permanently connected to a load and d.c. power supply.
  • In a static location: not generally moved from place to place.

They are incorporated into stationary equipment or installed in the battery room.

These kinds of batteries can be used in

  • Telecom
  • UPS
  • Utility switch
  • Emergency power or similar applications

The objective of IEC 60896-22:- It specifies the methods of tests for all types and construction of valve regulated stationary Lead acid batteries and monobloc batteries.

Does not applicable :

  • lead-acid cells and monobloc batteries used for vehicle engine starting applications
  • solar photovoltaic energy systems
  • general purpose applications

There is a list of tests performed on the batteries for safe operation characteristics, durability Characteristics & Performance Characteristics.

Safe operation characteristics


Test Clause Measure Purpose
6.1 Gas emission To determine the emitted gas volume
6.2 High Current Tolerance To verify the adequacy of current conduction

cross- sections

6.3 Short circuit current & d.c internal resistance To provide data for the sizing of fuses in the

exterior circuit

6.4 Protection against internal ignition from external spark sources To evaluate the adequacy of protective features
6.5 Protection against the ground short propensity To evaluate the adequacy of design features
6.6 Content and durability of required markings To evaluate the quality of the markings and the

the content of the information

6.7 Material identification To ensure the presence of material identification


6.8 Valve operation To ensure the correct opening of safety valves
6.9 Flammability rating of materials To verify the fire hazard class of battery materials
6.10 Intercell connector performance To verify the maximum surface temperatures of

the connectors during high rate discharges

Performance characteristics

Test Clause Measure purpose
6.11 Discharge capacity To verify the available capacities at selected

discharge rates or discharge durations.

6.12 Charge retention during storage To provide storage duration data
6.13 Float service with daily discharges To determine cyclic performance under float charge conditions
6.14 Recharge behavior To determine the recovery of capacity or

autonomy time after a power outage

Durability Characteristics

Test Clause Measure purpose
6.15 Service life at an operating temperature of

40 °C

To determine the operational life at elevated temperatures
6.16 Impact of a stress temperature of 55 °C or

60 °C

To determine the influence of high stress

temperatures on cell or monobloc battery life

6.17 Abusive over-discharge To determine the expected behavior when excess capacity is discharged
6.18 Thermal runaway sensitivity To determine the expected times to establish a condition of escalating current and temperature
6.19 Low-temperature sensitivity To determine the sensitivity toward damage induced by electrolyte freezing
6.20 Dimensional stability at elevated internal

pressure and temperature

To determine the propensity of the cell or

monobloc battery to be deformed by internal

pressure and at elevated temperature

6.21 Stability against mechanical abuse of units

during installation

To determine the propensity of the cell or

monobloc battery to fracture or leak when
