Transportable gas cylinders - Battery vehicles and multiple-element gas containers (MEGCs) - Design, manufacture, identification and testing
This European Standard specifies the requirements for the design, manufacture, identification and testing of battery vehicles and multiple-element gas containers (MEGCs) containing cylinders, tubes or bundles of cylinders. It is applicable to battery vehicles containing compressed gas, liquefied gas and mixtures thereof. It is also applicable to battery vehicles for dissolved acetylene. This European Standard is not applicable to toxic gases with an LC50 value less than or equal to 200 ml/m3.
This European Standard applies also to battery vehicles and MEGCs containing bundles of cylinders connected by a manifold which are dis-assembled from the battery vehicle and filled individually.
This European Standard does not apply to battery vehicles and MEGCs containing pressure drums or tanks, or to multi-element gas containers (MEGCs).
This European Standard does not specify requirements for the vehicle chassis or motive unit.
This European standard does not cover requirements for sea transportation.
This European Standard is primarily intended for industrial gases other than Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG). At the time of publication of this European Standard, there is no European Standard for dedicated LPG battery vehicles.
Where there is any conflict between this European Standard and any applicable regulation, the regulation always takes precedence.
