Talk: Standardization at EUROBIKE 2014

Dipl. Ing. Eduard Stolz, opi2020: "In the world of standardization, there is ISO on the vehicle side and IEC on the equipment side. For mopeds/motorcycles,  ISO TC 22/SC 23 and SC22 is responsible. On the IEC side, we have TC 69.

Still, there is a lack of standardization on the ISO side between the passenger cars and mopeds/motorcycles and below motorcycles. In the beginning of the next year, standards will be available for most topics."

Dipl. Ing. Stephan Scheuer, president and founding member BATSO e.V.: "Six generic test requirements dominate the LEV battery design: Overcharge, short circuit of battery and short circuit on cell level, crush, shock, dropping, climate stability and safe quality of battery series. There is a need for standards and as more the energy densities rise up as more critical is the issue.

Next year, we probably will get the ISO 18243 for electrically propelled mopeds and motorcycles. The CENELEC standard EN 50604-1for EPAC batteries is also expected in 2015 which is basically the content of the BATSO 01 standard.

The five steps for a safe battery market are: 1. Independently battery type testing, 2. Initial battery factory inspection by external experts, 3. Certification by certification body, 4. Repeatedly factory inspection and 5. An effective market surveillance."

Ernst Brust, Gründer und Geschäftsführer, "Ich bin bei Prüfinstituten wie Stiftung Warentest und Ökotest dabei. Die Kritik, die in letzter Zeit aufgekommen ist, finde ich gar nicht so schlecht. Es kann nicht schaden, dass die Branche wachgerüttelt wird. Überschriften, die manchmal gewählt werden, sind wieder eine andere Sache. Hier auf der Messe ist bereits eine Firma dabei, die das GS Prüfzeichen erhalten hat. Das ist die Firma Ansmann."
