Alarm and electronic security systems - Part 5-2: Alarm transmission systems - Requirements for supervised premises transceiver (SPT)

IEC 60839-5-2:2016 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. This new edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- reflects the current technological state of art (IP networks);
- harmonizes with the ATS categories introduced in IEC 60839-5-1:2014;
- introduces test requirements.

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.

International Standard IEC 60839-5-2 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 79:

Alarm and electronic security systems.
This international standard is based on EN 50136-2:2013.

The second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published 1991. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

INTRODUCTION

The object of this part of IEC 60839 is to specify the general requirements for the

performance, reliability, resilience and security of alarm transmission systems and to ensure

their suitability for use with different types of alarm systems and annunciation equipment.

An alarm transmission system may use any type of transmission network.

When the ATS functions are integrated into an alarm system or annunciation equipment the

requirements of this standard apply.

The intended users of this international standard include alarm transmission service

providers, alarm receiving centre operators, fire departments, insurance companies,

telecommunication network operators, internet service providers, equipment manufacturers,

alarm companies, end users and others.

The IEC 60839-5 series consists of the following parts, under the general title Alarm and

electronic security systems:
– Part 5-1: Alarm transmission systems – General requirements;

– Part 5-2: Alarm transmission systems – Requirements for supervised premises transceiver

(SPT);

– Part 5-3: Alarm transmission systems – Requirements for receiving centre transceiver

(RCT);
– Part 5-4 : (under evaluation);
– Part 5-5 : (under evaluation);
– Part 5-6 : (under evaluation);
– Part 5-7: (place holder).
____________

The former IEC 60839-5 series (1991) is being reviewed by an ad-hoc group set-up at the TC 79 meeting in

Milano in October 2013. This ad-hoc group is in charge of evaluating the relevance / obsolescence of

IEC 60839-5-4, IEC 60839-5-5 and IEC 60839-5-6 developed in 1991 and advise TC 79 on their future.

IEC 60839-5-2:2016 © IEC 2016 – 7 –
ALARM AND ELECTRONIC SECURITY SYSTEMS –
Part 5-2: Alarm transmission systems –
Requirements for supervised premises transceiver (SPT)
1 Scope

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.
2 Normative references

4 General requirements
4.1 General

Where appropriate, equipment shall comply with local, national and international requirements

and regulations for connection and transmission via public or private networks.

Requirements in this standard shall be considered as a minimum. As the SPT is used together

with or integrated in associated alarm systems, the requirements of the specific applications

or related standards shall apply.
---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
IEC 60839-5-2:2016 © IEC 2016 – 9 –

Specific applications may require additional testing of the SPT. If such characteristics for a

non-alarm application are provided and are submitted for testing, they shall be specified by

the manufacturer at the time of testing.
4.2 SPT classification

This standard defines SPT requirements. For some specific characteristics also, a

classification system or measuring scale is introduced. For the purpose of SPT classification,

reference is made to the ATS categories in IEC 60839-5-1. The SPT shall be labelled with

each category or range of categories that it can be applied to.

If a custom category (category C) is defined then the requirements corresponding to Tables 1,

2 and 3 shall also be defined.
5 Functional requirements
5.1 General

The SPT shall be able to receive alarms from one or more ASs and transmit the alarm to one

or more RCTs via one or more ATPs within the requirements of the appropriate ATS category.

5.2 Access levels

This standard specifies four levels of access that categorise the ability of users to gain logical

access to the SPT functions.

Physical access requirements may be defined in the relevant application specific standards.

Access levels are defined as follows:

– Level 1: access to functions, indications and notifications available to any individual

without authentication;

– Level 2: access to information about the operational status of the SPT. Access level 2

may also allow access to basic functional tests and the management of other
access level 2 users;

– Level 3: maintenance and commissioning functions, access in order to affect the SPT

configuration including the addition, removal or replacement of components

and other operations that directly, or indirectly, may influence the functions of

the SPT;
– Level 4: access to update the softwa
