Alarm and electronic security systems – Social alarm systems – Part 3: Local unit and controller
|Publication Date:||1 April 2014|
|ICS Code (Alarm and warning systems):||13.320|
This part of IEC 62851 specifies the minimum requirements and tests for local units and controllers forming part of a social alarm system.
This International Standard applies to local units and controllers that receive an alarm triggering signal from manually or automatically activated trigger devices and convert this into an alarm signal for transmission to the alarm receiving centre or an alarm recipient.
The local unit and controller may be either separate units or integrated into one unit.
The design should also take into consideration situations where the user may be unable to send an alarm, or where an unwanted alarm may be sent, due to technical malfunctions or poor ergonomic design.
