Alarm and electronic security systems – Part 5-2: Alarm transmission systems – Requirements for supervised premises transceiver (SPT)
|Publication Date:||1 February 2016|
|ICS Code (Alarm and warning systems):||13.320|
This part of IEC 60839-5 specifies the general equipment requirements for the performance, reliability, resilience, security and safety characteristics of supervised premises transceiver (SPT) installed in supervised premises and used in alarm transmission systems (ATS). A supervised premises transceiver can be a stand-alone device or an integrated part of an alarm system.
These requirements also apply to the SPT sharing means of interconnection, control, communication and power supplies with other applications.
The alarm transmission system requirements and classifications are defined within IEC 60839-5-1. Different types of alarm systems may in addition to alarm messages also send other types of messages, e.g. fault messages and status messages. The term alarm is used in this broad sense throughout the document. Additional requirements for the connection of specific types of alarm systems are given in the relevant international standards.
Because the SPT can be applied in different applications (e.g. I&HAS, fire and social alarm systems), requirements for the SPT, additional to those of this international standard, may be specified in separate application specific documents.
This international standard specifies the requirements specific to alarm transmission. Application specific requirements for the connection of the SPT to specific types of alarm systems are given in the IEC 60839-5 series for I&HAS, and the EN 54 series for fire. For other SPT applications, see the relevant national or international standards.
