Alarm systems – Intrusion and hold-up systems – Part 7: Application guidelines
|Publication Date:||1 February 2011|
|ICS Code (Alarm and warning systems):||13.320|
This Technical Specification provides guidance on the design, planning, operation, installation, commissioning and maintenance of intrusion and hold-up alarm system (I&HAS) installed in buildings. Requirements for I&HAS are specified in IEC 62642-1:2010.
The recommendations of this Technical Specification (TS) also apply to intruder alarm system (IAS) and hold-up alarm system (HAS) when these systems are installed independently.
When an I&HAS does not include functions relating to the detection of intruders, the requirements relating to intrusion detection do not apply.
When an I&HAS does not include functions relating to hold-up, the requirements relating to hold-up do not apply.
NOTE 1 Unless otherwise stated, the abbreviation I&HAS is also intended to mean IAS and HAS.
These application guidelines are intended to assist those responsible for establishing an I&HAS to ascertain the appropriate design of I&HAS both in terms of the extent of the supervision required and in determining the grade of system performance necessary to provide the degree of supervision considered appropriate.
These application guidelines are also intended to assist those responsible for selecting equipment appropriate to both the level of performance required and the environmental conditions in which the equipment will be required to operate.
These application guidelines are relevant to all classes and grades of I&HAS of any size and complexity. These application guidelines should be read in conjunction with IEC 62462- 1:2010.
NOTE 2 It has been assumed in the drafting of these application guidelines that the execution of its provisions will be entrusted to appropriately qualified and experienced persons. However, the guidance is also appropriate to other persons who may be required to purchase or use an I&HAS.
