Starter Motors

Other Vehicle Electronics Standards cover rotating electrical machines (motors) for rail and road vehicles, starter motors, technical documentation of electrical and electronic systems, lamps, switching devices, and other vehicle electronics standards. This collection of topics serves to complement the previous categories, bringing to light smaller areas of standardization that do not normally receive as large of a focus. These standards are related to vehicle ignition.

ISO 13476:1997

Road vehicles - Ignition coils - Electrical characteristics and test methods

This International Standard applies to ignition coils for inductive energy storage. It defines test methods for ignition coils used in ignition systems with solid state switching of spark ignited internal combustion engines.

ISO 6518-2:1995

Road vehicles - Ignition systems - Part 2: Electrical performance and function test methods

Cancels and replaces the first edition (1982). Lays down the methods and test conditions for testing battery-supplied ignition systems for spark-ignited internal combustion engines. Gives two methods of obtaining the results necessary for calculating the system output energy.

ISO 8856:2014

Road vehicles - Electrical performance of starter motors - Test methods and general requirements

ISO 8856:2014 lays down test methods and general requirements for the determination of the electrical characteristics of DC starter motors intended to start internal combustion engines of road vehicles.
