Additional tests and requirements for absorbant glass mat batteries (AGM) and enhanced flooded starter batteries (EFB)

Class/Status: Anwendungsregel, valid
Released: 2020-10
VDE Art. No.: 0500184

This VDE application rule defines test methods and typical requirements for AGM and EFB lead-acid starter batteries with dimensions according to EN 50342-2 with a nominal voltage of 12 V. The aim is to define test methods that are not described in external standards in order to minimize the variety of similar procedures as far as possible. Furthermore, a recommendation for appropriate test sequences is given, which defines the sequence of the individual tests.
