Why is it necessary to obtain the CE marking for lithium batteries?

Play Video about CE marking for lithium batteries

The CE marking is highly recommended for mass-produced batteries. It must be achieved with the product in the application area of the battery. We recommend you to contact TYVA Energie’s engineers in order to get more technical details.

There are several elements:

The EMC (electromagnetic compatibility)

Thanks to these tests, we can check if the battery keeps operating properly despite the presence of disturbances and electromagnetic interferences.

There are two test modes achieved in a laboratory equipped with an anechoic chamber:

  • The first is the radiated mode. We are going to measure in the air if the battery is disrupted by its environment or if it disrupts its surrounding environment.
  • The second is the conducted mode. We are going to achieve measures on the battery’s wires and cables connected to the components of its system, but also to the charger.

Here is another element:

The LVD (Low Voltage Device)

It is the low voltage directive (2014/35/UE) concerning the safety of electric devices.

As an example, we are going to check if the battery doesn’t represent a threat for its user being based on:

  • The conformity of various connectors used inside the product,
  • The properties of materials used: temperature resistance, flame resistance but also crashes and shocks resistance.

Thank you for your attention, see you next week for a new video.
