Alarm systems - Intrusion and hold-up systems - Part 3: Control and indicating equipment

This standard specifies the requirements, performance criteria and testing procedures for control and indicating equipment (CIE) intended for use in intrusion and hold-up alarm systems (I&HAS) installed in buildings. This document also applies to CIE to be used in IAS or HAS. The CIE may incorporate processing functions of other I&HAS components or its processing requirements may be distributed among such components. This standard specifies the requirements for CIE installed in buildings using specific or non-specific wired interconnections or wire-free interconnections. These requirements also apply to ACE that are installed inside or outside of the supervised premises and mounted in indoor or outdoor environments. Where CIE shares means of detection, interconnection, control, communication, processing and/or power supplies with other applications, these requirements apply to I&HAS functions only. This standard specifies performance requirements for CIE at each of the four security grades identified in the European Standard EN 50131-1, “Alarm Systems – Intrusion and hold-up systems – System requirements”. Requirements are also specified for four environmental classes covering applications for indoor and outdoor locations. This standard includes mandatory functions, which shall be provided on all CIE for the appropriate security grade, as well as optional functions that may additionally be provided. This standard does not deal with requirements for compliance with EU regulatory Directives, such as the EMC Directive, Low Voltage Directive, etc. except in that it specifies the equipment operating conditions for EMC susceptibility testing as required by EN 50130-4. NOTE In this standard reference to the term “I&HAS” is used throughout, except where there is specific need to differentiate between the IAS and HAS portions of a system. The term is intended to include IAS and HAS when such systems are installed separately.

Alarmanlagen - Einbruch- und Überfallmeldeanlagen - Teil 3: Melderzentrale

Diese Norm legt die Anforderungen, Leistungsmerkmale und die Prüfverfahren für Zentralen (Z) fest, die für den Gebrauch von in Gebäuden installierten Einbruch- und Überfallmeldeanlagen (EMA/ÜMA) bestimmt sind. Dieses Dokument gilt auch für Zentralen, die entweder in EMA oder in ÜMA verwendet werden. Die Zentrale darf Verarbeitungsfunktionen anderer EMA/ÜMA Anlageteile enthalten oder die Anforderungen an die Verarbeitung der Zentrale können in diesen Anlageteilen verteilt sein. Diese Norm legt die Anforderungen an Zentralen fest, die in Gebäuden unter Verwendung von exklusiv oder nicht exklusiv verdrahteten oder drahtlosen Verbindungen installiert sind. Diese Anforde¬rungen gelten auch für zusätzliche Bedieneinrichtungen (ZBE), die innerhalb oder außerhalb des überwachten Objektes in Innen¬räumen oder im Freien installiert sind. Wenn Zentralen Mittel der Erkennung, Verbindung, Bedienung, Kommunikation, Verarbeitung und/oder die Energieversorgungen mit anderen Anwendungen teilen, gelten diese Anforderungen nur für EMA/ÜMA Funk¬tionen. Diese Norm beschreibt Anforderungen an die Leistungsmerkmale von Zentralen für jeden der vier Sicherheits¬grade, die in der Europäischen Norm EN 50131-1 „Alarmanlagen – Einbruch- und Überfallmelde¬anlagen – Systemanforderungen“ beschrieben sind. Auch für die vier Umweltklassen, die die Verwendung in Innenräu¬men und im Freien abdecken, sind Anforderungen festgelegt. Diese Norm beinhaltet verbindliche Funktionen, die die Zentrale für den jeweiligen Sicherungsgrad zur Verfü¬gung stellen muss sowie wählbare Funktionen, die zusätzlich zur Verfügung gestellt werden dürfen. Diese Norm beschäftigt sich nicht mit Anforderungen, die zur Einhaltung von Europäischen Richtlinien, wie z. B. die EMV Richtlinie, Niederspannungsrichtlinie etc. gelten, ausgenommen dass sie für solche Geräte, die die Betriebsbedingungen für EMV-Störanfälligkeit wie in EN 50130-4 gefordert, erfüllen müssen, festlegt. ANMERKUNG In dieser Norm wird durchgehend der Begriff EMA/ÜMA verwendet, außer wenn es notwendig ist, zwi¬schen EMA- und ÜMA-Anteilen einer Anlage zu unterscheiden. Der Begriff schließt EMA und ÜMA ein, wenn diese Anla¬gen einzeln installiert sind.

Systèmes d’alarme - Systèmes d'alarme contre l’intrusion et les hold-up - Partie 3: Equipement de contrôle et de signalisation

La présente norme spécifie les exigences, critères de performance et procédures d'essai pour les matériels de commande et d’affichage (centrales d’alarme) (CIE en anglais) destines à être utilisés dans les systèmes d'alarme contre l'intrusion (IAS) et les systèmes d'alarme contre les hold-up (HAS) installés dans les bâtiments. Le présent document s'applique également aux CIE destinés à être utilisés dans les systèmes IAS ou HAS. Les CIE peuvent incorporer des fonctions de traitement d'autres composants IAS et HAS ou leurs besoins de traitement peuvent être répartis entre ces composants. La présente norme spécifie les exigences relatives aux CIE installés dans des bâtiments qui utilisent des liaisons filaires spécifiques ou non spécifiques ou des liaisons radio. Ces exigences s'appliquent également aux ACE installés à l'intérieur ou à l'extérieur des bâtiments surveillés et montés dans un environnement intérieur ou extérieur. Lorsque le CIE partage des moyens de détection, d'interconnexion, de commande, de communication, de traitement et/ou des alimentations avec d'autres applications, ces exigences ne s'appliquent qu'aux fonctions IAS et HAS. La présente norme spécifie les exigences de performance pour les CIE pour chacun des quatre grades de sécurité identifiés dans la Norme Européenne EN 50131 1, “Systèmes d'alarme - Systèmes d'alarme contre l’intrusion et les hold-up – Partie 1: Exigences système”. Des exigences sont également spécifiées pour quatre classes d'environnement couvrant des applications pour des emplacements intérieurs et extérieurs. La présente norme inclut des fonctions obligatoires, qui doivent être assurées pour tous les CIE pour le grade approprié de sécurité, ainsi que des fonctions facultatives complémentaires. La présente norme ne traite pas des exigences de conformité aux Directives réglementaires de l'Union Européenne, telles que la Directive relative à la compatibilité électromagnétique, la Directive relative aux basses tensions, etc. à ceci près qu'elle spécifie les conditions de fonctionnement de l'équipement pour les essais de susceptibilité de compatibilité électromagnétique tels que requis par la EN 50130-4. NOTE Dans la présente norme, il est fait référence au terme “I&HAS” dans l'intégralité de celle-ci sauf lorsqu'il est spécifiquement nécessaire de différencier les parties IAS et HAS d'un système. Le terme est destiné à inclure IAS et HAS lorsque ces systèmes sont installés séparément.

Introduction

This document is based on the revision of the Technical Specification originally edited by the

CENELEC TC 79/WG 3, then submitted to the formal vote and finally approved by CENELEC as

CLC/TS 50131-3 on 2003-05-19.

The work done by WG 3 is the result of the comments raised by the National Committees, members of

CENELEC and of harmonisation with EN 50131-1:2006 + A1:2009 prepared by TC 79/WG 1; for this

reason the reader has to take into account EN 50131-1:2006 + A1:2009, which has to be considered

as a “master” document for this EN 50131-3.

Repetition of definitions and requirements contained in EN 50131-1 have been eliminated from this

EN 50131-3, in order to minimise conflict in the event of changes to EN 50131-1, except where

repetition is deemed essential for the clarity of this document.

Reference has been included to various implications arising from the detector standards. Full detail of

the interconnection requirements could be the subject of a future standard.

A number of requirements are contained in this standard for which a formal test procedure can only be

written by defining (and hence restricting) the technology by which the requirement is achieved.

Accordingly, it has been recognised that such functions can be tested only by agreement between

manufacturer and test house, according to documented information relating to how the required

functionality has been achieved.

A table to cross reference EN 50131-1 requirements against this EN 50131-3 and tests has been

included in Annex D.

1 Scope

This standard specifies the requirements, performance criteria and testing procedures for control and

indicating equipment (CIE) intended for use in intrusion and hold-up alarm systems (I&HAS) installed

in buildings. This document also applies to CIE to be used in IAS or HAS.

The CIE may incorporate processing functions of other I&HAS components or its processing

requirements may be distributed among such components.

This standard specifies the requirements for CIE installed in buildings using specific or non-specific

wired interconnections or wire-free interconnections. These requirements also apply to ACE that are

installed inside or outside of the supervised premises and mounted in indoor or outdoor environments.

Where CIE shares means of detection, interconnection, control, communication, processing and/or

power supplies with other applications, these requirements apply to I&HAS functions only.

This standard specifies performance requirements for CIE at each of the four security grades identified

in the European Standard EN 50131-1, “Alarm Systems – Intrusion and hold-up systems – System

requirements”. Requirements are also specified for four environmental classes covering applications

for indoor and outdoor locations.

This standard includes mandatory functions, which shall be provided on all CIE for the appropriate

security grade, as well as optional functions that may additionally be provided.

This standard does not deal with requirements for compliance with EU regulatory Directives, such as

the EMC Directive, Low Voltage Directive, etc. except in that it specifies the equipment operating

conditions for EMC susceptibility testing as required by EN 50130-4.

NOTE In this standard reference to the term “I&HAS” is used throughout, except where there is specific need to differentiate

between the IAS and HAS portions of a system. The term is intended to include IAS and HAS when such systems are installed

separately.

4 Equipment attributes
4.1 General

CIE shall include attributes for the reception of signals and/or messages, processing the information,

notification and indication as appropriate. The detailed requirements are provided in Clause 8.

NOTE If a function is provided that is optional for a particular grade and a claim of compliance is made, it shall meet the

applicable requirements for the grade for which compliance is claimed (if any are given). If there are no specifications for the

function at the grade in question, the requirements for any higher grade (as identified by the manufacturer) shall apply.

Compliance with this standard shall be demonstrated by assessment of Clause 4 through to Clause 10

and the application of the tests of Clause 11.

Annex D provides a cross reference between the requirements of EN 50131-1 and the requirements

and tests of this standard.

SIST EN 50131-3:2009
– 11 – EN 50131-3:2009
4.2 Functionality

Functions additional to the mandatory functions specified in this standard may be included in I&HAS

providing they do not influence the correct operation of the mandatory functions.

Where provided, these additional functions shall not affect compliance with the requirements of this

standard, except as permitted by EN 50131-1:2006, 8.3.13.

It is permitted for the CIE to include functionality for special purposes that would render the

I&HAS non-compliant with EN 50131-1. The manufacturer’s documentation shall include a

warning to this effect.

If use of a function(s) or combination of functions within the CIE would result in the installed I&HAS not

being compliant with EN 50131-1 or being compliant at a lower security grade (EXAMPLE: function(s)
