This European Standard is applicable to lead-acid batteries used for heavy vehicles. The object of this European Standard is to specify the European requirements of the main dimensions of starter batteries. For new and future developments of the above applications it is strongly recommended that only batteries from the ihPreferred Typesle series be used. Batteries of the series of ifOther Typeslr exist under several national standards. They have been transferred from the previous standard EN 60095-4. The preferred types A, B and C are newly introduced and correspond closely to the types D4, D5 and D6 with some differences in tolerances and dimensions.
