GENERAL INFORMATION ON SEALED LEAD-ACID BATTERIES - CONTINUED
Transportation Our SLA batteries should be handled as common cargo for both air shipment (*1) and boat shipment (*2), as they can withstand electrolyte leakage during the vibration test, the differential atmospheric pressure test and the altitude test in accordance with the special requirements of transportation regulations specified by the international organizations (ICAO: International Commercial Aviation Organization and IMO: International Maritime Organization). (*1: Special provision A67 *2: Special provision 238)
After an evaluation by the JQA (Japan Quality Association), under their Quality Assurance Corporate Registration System, the quality system at our Hamanako plant, which is where we manufacture our sealed lead-acid batteries, was recognized and registered as conforming with ISO 9001-1994/BS EN ISO 9001:1994/EN-ISO 9001-1994/JIS Z9901-1994. (Registered certification number: JQA-1113 Date issued: December 28,1995)
After an assessment by the JACO (Japan Audit and Certification Organization for Environment), the Environmental Management System at our HAMANAKO site was approved with the standard ISO
14001:1996 JIS Q 14001:1996.
number: EC97J1085 Issue Date: 30/09/1997)
JIS (Japan Industrial Standards)
Our sealed lead-acid batteries comply with JIS C 8702,
Example of rechargability after deep discharge and standing
(Test condition) Discharge: 24 hours at 6 ohms Hold: Standing for 1 month in open-circuit state Charge: 6.9V constant-voltage charging for 16 hours; Maximum current: 1.6V Temperature: 25˚C
8 12 Charge time (hours)
and our MSE cathode absorption-type sealed batteries comply with JIS C 8707. (Some of the small-sized sealed lead-acid batteries conform with JIS.)
Our SLA batteries fall into UL1989 (Standby Batteries). UL1989 requires that the battery is free from the hazard of bursting, that is, when the battery is overcharged the vent valve opens to release internal pressure. UL- recognized types of SLA batteries to date are listed in the following table. A number of the recognized battery types are in use for such applications as emergency lights.
VdS and other recognition
The types of SLA batteries which have acquired VdS (Germany) recognition and the Japanese recognition to date are also listed.
