Primary batteries — Part 1: General (Adopted IEC 60086-1:2015, twelfth edition, 2015-07, with Canadian deviations)
This is the first edition of CSA C22.2 No. 60086-1, Primary batteries — Part 1: General, which is an adoption, with Canadian deviations, of the identically titled IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) Standard 60086-1 (twelfth edition, 2015-07). It is one in a series of Standards issued by CSA Group under Part II of the Canadian Electrical Code. At the time of publication, IEC 60086-1:2015 is available from IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from IEC.
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CSA C22.2 No. 60086-1 throughout.
This Standard is considered suitable for use for conformity assessment within the stated scope of the Standard.
This Standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This part of IEC 60086 is intended to standardize primary batteries with respect to dimensions, nomenclature, terminal configurations, markings, test methods, typical performance, safety and environmental aspects.
As a primary battery classification tool, electrochemical systems are also standardized with respect to system letter, electrodes, electrolyte, nominal and maximum open circuit voltage.
NOTE The requirements justifying the inclusion or the ongoing retention of batteries in the IEC 60086 series are given in Annex A.
The object of this part of IEC 60086 is to benefit primary battery users, device designers and battery manufacturers by ensuring that batteries from different manufacturers are interchangeable according to standard form, fit and function. Furthermore, to ensure compliance with the above, this part specifies standard test methods for testing primary cells and batteries.
