ASPİLSAN’s Lithium Ion Battery Accredited in Europe
Established in Kayseri to meet Turkiye’s battery needs, ASPİLSAN started mass production of locally produced INR18650A28 lithium ion in June 2022. The company’s products have been accredited in Europe.
ASPİLSAN Energy focussed on the European market with the batteries it produced in the lithium-ion battery factory established in a closed area of 25 thousand square metres in the Kayseri Mimar Sinan Organised Industrial Zone.
ASPİLSAN Energy has registered the quality of the INR18650-A28 lithium-ion battery cells it produces with many international quality certificates. Making a statement about the accreditation process, ASPİLSAN Energy General Manager Ferhat Özsoy said: “After the mass production of our lithium-ion battery, which we started in the second half of 2022, the tests carried out in independent and accredited laboratories in Europe to meet the international quality standards of the performance and safety capabilities of our battery cells. We registered the result with many certificates we obtained in a short time.
To ensure the quality and transportation safety of our batteries, which are produced for the first time after mass production, we have completed the certification process within the scope of the UN38.3 standard, which includes the special transportation tests and requirements of the International Air Transport Association (IATA ) and the United Nations. A28 battery cells were tested under harsh conditions such as low pressure, thermal change, vibration, mechanical shock, external short-circuit, impact and over-discharge in a laboratory environment simulating the dangerous conditions encountered while transporting batteries from one place to another. After completing all tests in independent certification and test laboratories, ASPİLSAN A28 battery cells received the UN38.3 transport safety certificate. On the other hand, A28 battery cells comply with the IEC 62133, IEC 61960 and IEC 62619 standards published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), which has members from 82 countries, including Turkiye, and was established to prepare international standards on Electronics and related technologies. It has been subjected to many safety and performance tests to ensure that it meets its requirements. In this direction, A28 batteries are the Forced Internal Short-Circuit test, which is only requested as an additional test by the countries of France, Japan, Switzerland and the Republic of Korea, within the scope of the IEC 62133-2 standard, which defines the safety requirements for rechargeable lithium-ion batteries used in portable applications.
Similarly, ASPİLSAN A28 battery cells completed various electrical performance and life tests applied within the scope of the IEC 61960-3 standard, which includes the performance requirements for batteries used in portable applications, and registered their quality by independent testing and certification bodies, in the tests carried out within the scope of the IEC 62619 standard, which defines the requirements for the safe operation of lithium-ion batteries in many industrial application areas, including portable applications, as well as Telecom, UPS, energy storage systems, emergency systems, golf carts, forklifts, AGV-style vehicles, railway and marine vehicles. After its successful completion, ASPİLSAN A28 cells added a new one to its certificates in May 2023.
German Batemo GmbH, which is the global technology leader in simulation software for lithium-ion batteries, has added the results of ASPİLSAN INR18650A28 cells to the battery libraries (BATEMO Cell Library), where they include independent cell performance evaluations after the tests and analyses it has carried out. The results show that A28 batteries exhibit high performance similar to the equivalent batteries of the leading cell manufacturers leading the sector.
As ASPİLSAN Energy, we continue our activities to meet the country, sector, or product-specific test and certification needs that customers need or request in the coming period, and we carry out our activities to become a vital battery exporter in 2023”.
