Alarm systems - Intrusion and hold-up systems - Part 7: Application guidelines

IEC/TS 62642-7:2011(E) 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. It also applies to intruder alarm system and hold-up alarm system when these systems are installed independently. 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.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

The main task of IEC technical committees is to prepare International Standards. In

exceptional circumstances, a technical committee may propose the publication of a technical

specification when

• the required support cannot be obtained for the publication of an International Standard,

despite repeated efforts, or

• the subject is still under technical development or where, for any other reason, there is the

future but no immediate possibility of an agreement on an International Standard.

Technical specifications are subject to review within three years of publication to decide

whether they can be transformed into International Standards.

IEC 62642-7, which is a technical specification, has been prepared by IEC technical

committee 79: Alarm and electronic security systems.

INTRODUCTION

This part 7 of the IEC 62642 series of standards gives requirements for intrusion and hold-up

alarm systems. The other parts of this series of standards are as follows:
Part 1 System requirements
Part 2-2 Intrusion detectors – Passive infrared detectors
Part 2-3 Intrusion detectors – Microwave detectors
Part 2-4 Intrusion detectors – Combined passive infrared / microwave detectors
Part 2-5 Intrusion detectors – Combined passive infrared / ultrasonic detectors
Part 2-6 Intrusion detectors – Opening contacts (magnetic)
Part 2-71 Intrusion detectors – Glass break detectors – Acoustic
Part 2-72 Intrusion detectors – Glass break detectors – Passive
Part 2-73 Intrusion detectors – Glass break detectors – Active
Part 3 Control and indicating equipment
Part 4 Warning devices

Part 5-3 Interconnections – Requirements for equipment using radio frequency techniques

Part 6 Power supplies
Part 7 Application guidelines
Part 8 Security fog devices/systems

In order to insure the consistency of the whole IEC 62642 series, the terminology is defined at

one place that is the master document IEC 62642-1 that gives general requirements

concerning the intrusion system. Exception is made for specific terms to installation and

where repetition is deemed essential for the clarity of this document.

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 installers and test house, according to documented

information relating to how the required functionality has been achieved.

These application guidelines are intended to provide advice relating to the design, installation,

operation and maintenance of Intruder and Hold-up Alarm Systems (I&HAS). The purpose of

this document is to ensure, as far as is practical, that I&HAS provide the required

performance with a minimum of unwanted alarms.

These application guidelines are set out in the logical order in which an I&HAS would normally

be designed and installed. Each procedure is set out separately in the guideline but it is

accepted that, in practice, some of the procedures may be carried out simultaneously.

Annex K describes in the form of a flowchart the main processes and documentation included

in this application guideline.

Those responsible for the design, installation planning, system installation, commissioning,

operation and maintenance of I&HAS should be conversant with other International

Standards relating to I&HAS, particularly those relating to system performance, control and

indicating equipment, detectors, warning devices, power supplies and alarm transmission

systems.

These application guidelines are set out in seven main clauses; a brief explanation of each

section is shown below.
a) Clause 7 – System design
---------------------- Page: 8 ----------------------
TS 62642-7  IEC:2011(E) – 7 –

This clause is intended to assist those responsible for designing I&HAS to design I&HAS

suitable for the premises to be supervised in relation to the perceived risk(s). The design

of I&HAS will depend on many factors, all of which will influence more or less the design

of I&HAS. Consideration of these factors will result in a system design proposal for an

I&HAS with the appropriate extent, security grade and environmental class.
b) Clause 8 – Installation planning

This clause is intended to help those responsible for installing I&HAS by highlighting

issues which should be considered prior to commencing the installation of the I&HAS.

c) Clause 9 – System installation

In this clause, guidance is given with regard to issues arising during the installation of

I&HAS. This clause is intended to ensure I&HAS is correctly installed as specified at the

design stage.
d) Clause 10 – Inspection, functional testing and commissioning

In this clause, guidance is given on issues arising after I&HAS has been installed. The

clause is intended to ensure I&HAS has been installed as specified and also provides the

level of performance intended at the design stage. Guidance is also provided with regard

to the proper commissioning and handing over of the system to the user and to the

documents, records and operating instructions which should be provided.
e) Clause 11 – Documentation and records

This clause describes the documentation which should be provided to the client on

completion of I&HAS. The documents are intended to provide a history of modifications to

I&HAS, based on the as-fitted document, prepared when I&HAS installation was
completed.

The records are intended to chronicle any corrective action carried out following

unwanted alarm conditions and details of any repairs or modifications to I&HAS. The

record should also include details of temporary fault conditions.
f) Clause 12 – Operation of I&HAS

This clause describes the responsibility of the client or user of I&HAS to properly

maintain I&HAS and to ensure it is operated correctly.
g) Clause 13 – Maintenance and repair of I&HAS

This clause describes how I&HAS should be maintained and repaired to ensure I&HAS

continues to provide the level of performance intended at the design stage.

ALARM SYSTEMS –
INTRUSION AND HOLD-UP SYSTEMS –
Part 7: Application guidelines
1 Scope

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.
