This European Standard specifies the minimum equipment requirements for the performance, reliability, resilience, security and safety characteristics of the receiving centre transceiver (RCT) installed in ARC and used in alarm transmission systems. The alarm transmission system requirements and classifications are defined within EN 50136 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. These messages are also considered to be alarm messages. The term alarm message is used in this broad sense throughout the document.  Where application specific standards exist, the RCT should comply with relevant standards called up by that application. The RCT can be either an integrated element of any receiving/annunciation equipment, or a stand-alone device. In either case, the requirements of this European Standard should apply. The function of the RCT is to monitor the ATPs, receive alarm messages, forward alarm messages to one or more AEs and send acknowledgements to the SPTs. Management of the transmission network is not in the scope of this European Standard.

This document applies to interconnections between intrusion and hold-up alarm system components using specific or non-specific wired interconnections (e.g. between SPT and CIE). The interconnected components are located within the supervised premises, or mounted on the outside of the supervised premises (e.g. external warning devices).
This document does not apply to interconnections between components located within the same enclosure, or to interconnections between parts of an I&HAS component if covered by the relevant product standard. This document does not define the physical requirements of the interconnection media.
This document is expected to be used in conjunction with the other parts of the EN 50131 series that define the functional requirements of the equipment regardless of the interconnection technique used.
Where monitoring of the functionality of the interconnections is undertaken by an interconnected component, this is defined in the relevant product standard in the EN 50131 series. If a component standard indicates that an interconnection will be monitored, then this document determines the monitored conditions applicable to the interconnection.
NOTE 1   For example, if there is no requirement in a detector standard to monitor a remote indication of detection input, this document does not apply to that particular interconnection.
Requirements for the monitoring of the functionality of power connections between I&HAS components are defined in the relevant product standard and are not included within this document.
This document defines the terms used in the field of intrusion and hold-up alarm equipment using such interconnections and includes the requirements relevant to the equipment interfaces.
Wired interconnection media can include metallic single stranded insulated cable, metallic multi-stranded insulated cable, and fibre optic cable. These cables can comprise single or multiple cores.
NOTE 2    Interconnections using RF techniques (i.e. wire free interconnections) are dealt with by EN 50131 5 3.

This document is for combined passive infrared and microwave detectors installed in buildings and provides for security Grades 1 to 4 (see EN 50131-1), specific or non-specific wired or wire-free detectors, and uses environmental classes I to IV (see EN 50130-5). This document does not include requirements for detectors intended for use outdoors.
The purpose of the detector is to detect the broad spectrum infrared radiation emitted by an intruder, to emit microwave signals and analyse the signals that are returned and to provide the necessary range of signals or messages to be used by the rest of the intrusion alarm system.
For a combined detector where both technologies have to be activated in order to generate an alarm condition, providing higher false alarm immunity, it is essential to meet the grade dependent requirements of this document.
For a combined detector which can be configured or operated such that each detection technology can generate an alarm condition independently, it is essential to meet the grade-dependant requirements of EN 50131-2-2 and EN 50131-2-3 when configured accordingly. Otherwise the manufacturer clearly states that the detector does not comply to this document and not to EN 50131-2-2 and EN 50131-2-3 when put into such a configuration.
It is essential that a detector fulfil all the requirements of the specified grade.
Functions additional to the mandatory functions specified in this document can be included in the detector, providing they do not influence the correct operation of the mandatory functions.
This document does not apply to system interconnections.

This European Standard specifies general requirements for construction, testing and performance, and describes the test methods that apply to portable, transportable and fixed apparatus for the measurement of the oxygen concentration in gas mixtures indicating up to 25 % (v/v). The apparatus, or parts thereof, may be intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (see 4.1) and in mines susceptible to firedamp. In the case of inert gas purging (inertization), it applies also to apparatus with an oxygen measuring function for explosion protection. NOTE Commonly used oxygen sensors in commercial equipment for industrial application are: a) paramagnetic sensors; b) electrochemical sensors (aqueous and solid electrolytes); c) tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy sensors (TDLAS). This standard is also applicable when an apparatus manufacturer makes any claims regarding any special features of construction or superior performance that exceed the minimum requirements of this standard. All such claims shall be verified and the test procedures shall be extended or supplemented, where necessary, to verify the claimed performance. The additional tests shall be agreed between the manufacturer and test laboratory and identified and described in the test report. This European Standard is applicable to oxygen alarm apparatus intended to measure reliably the oxygen concentration, to provide an indication, alarm or other output function, the purpose of which is to give a warning of a potential hazard and, in some cases, to initiate automatic or manual protective action(s), whenever the level exceeds or falls below a preselected alarm concentration. This standard is applicable to apparatus, including integral sampling systems of aspirated apparatus, intended to be used for commercial, industrial and non-residential safety applications. This standard does not apply to external sampling systems, or to apparatus of laboratory or scientific type, or to medical equipment, or to apparatus used only for process control purposes. For apparatus used for sensing the presence of multiple gases, this standard applies only to the measurement of oxygen. This standard is also applicable to apparatus using optical principles (e.g. TDLAS), where the optical transmitter and receiver or the optical transceiver (i.e. combined transmitter and receiver) and a suitable reflector are not located in a common enclosure. However, in this case it will be necessary to modify the test conditions described in Clause 5 and to introduce supplementary tests to Clause 6 of this standard. Such supplementary tests will include alignment, beam block fault, long range operation. Guidance to appropriate modification of the test conditions and supplementary tests may be taken from EN 60079 29 4. Modifications of the test conditions as well as modified and supplementary tests shall be agreed between the manufacturer and test laboratory and identified and described in the test report.

This Technical Specification provides guidelines for the application of automatic fire detection and fire alarm systems in and around buildings. The guideline covers planning, design, installation, commissioning, use and maintenance of the systems.
The guidelines cover systems intended for the protection of life and/or the protection of property. The guidelines cover systems with a control and indicating equipment and at least one manual call point or one fire detector. In the event of a fire the systems may be capable of providing signals to initiate the operation of ancillary equipment (such as fixed fire extinguishing systems) and other precautions and actions (such as machinery shutdown or remote transmission of alarms). These guidelines do not cover the ancillary services themselves or ancillary circuits to interface with them.
The guidelines do not cover systems combining fire alarm functions with other non-fire related functions.
The guidelines do not recommend whether or not an automatic fire detection and/or fire alarm system should be installed in any given premises.
It has been assumed in the drafting of these guidelines that they are used by appropriately competent persons. However, guidance is also given to other persons purchasing or using a fire detection and / or fire alarm system.
Smoke alarms according to EN 14604 are not fire detection and fire alarm systems.

This Technical Specification specifies a protocol for point-to-point transmission of alarms, faults, control signals and communications monitoring, between a Local Unit and Controller and an Alarm Receiving Centre using the Internet protocol (IP). The protocol is intended for use over any network that supports the transmission of IP data with sufficient quality of service to support VoIP or a separate voice channel.
The Alarm Protocol is defined as an XML scheme including the alarm types, codes and necessary additional information.
The alarm protocol is an application layer protocol using another Internet Protocol as a transport protocol to handle addressing and transport functions. The transport protocol initially defined in this Technical Specification is SIP (Session Initiation Protocol).
The system performance characteristics for alarm transmission are specified in EN 50134-5. The performance characteristics of the Local Unit and Controller are expected to comply with the requirements of its associated alarm system standard and to apply for the transmission of social alarms.
The protocols described in this standard are based on the SS 91100:2014 SCAIP standard [7] and defined to enable backwards compatibility with existing products based on the SCAIP standard.
