Introduction

This European Standard covers apparatus for measuring gas concentrations and other combustion

parameters, as used in the installation and maintenance of heating appliances. It forms a specification for

portable electrical apparatus designed to measure combustion flue gas parameters of heating appliances,

and includes the following parts under the generic title Specification for portable electrical apparatus

designed to measure combustion flue gas parameters of heating appliances:
Part 1: General requirements and test methods;

Part 2: Performance requirements for apparatus used in statutory inspections and assessments;

Part 3: Performance requirements for apparatus used in non-statutory servicing of gas fired heating

appliances.

EN 50379-1 specifies general requirements for the construction, testing and performance of portable spot

reading apparatus designed to give an assessment of specific combustion flue gas parameters such as

concentration of gaseous compounds, temperature and/or pressure to check the combustion performance of

heating appliances for domestic residential and commercial applications using commercially available fuels.

EN 50379-2 is for apparatus intended to be used for statutory measurement. In several European countries,

legal requirements exist for the performance of heating appliances. Authorised inspectors use these

apparatus to measure the flue gas parameters, in order to test compliance with national regulations. Due to

the legal consequences resulting from the measurement there are strict requirements regarding the

measuring uncertainty of these apparatus. Therefore EN 50379-2 includes maximum values for measuring

uncertainty of the apparatus. Tests with real flue gases form a key part of the verification of the performance

of the apparatus for statutory measurement. The measuring uncertainty has to be justified by internationally

accepted methods over the whole measuring range.

EN 50379-3 is for apparatus intended to be used for non-statutory applications. There are reduced

performance requirements, because the apparatus are designed to decide if maintenance for a gas fired

appliance is required, and for adjusting the appliance during maintenance. There will be no determination of

the measuring uncertainty for the apparatus.

1 Scope

This European Standard covers apparatus designed to measure flue gas parameters of heating appliances

for domestic residential and commercial applications using commercially available fuels in compliance with

metrological specification.

The apparatus may consist of different functional modules that may be tested separately for complying with

this standard and will be combined in different ways according to the different applications. Part 1 of

EN 50379 specifies the general requirements and is supplemented by the requirements in EN 50379-2

and/or EN 50379-3.

This European Standard specifies the performance requirements of portable spot reading apparatus

designed to give a measurement of specific combustion flue gas parameters such as concentration of

gaseous compounds, temperature and/or pressure to be used for testing the compliance with national

regulations for the above mentioned appliances.
This European Standard excludes apparatus for
– continuous emission, safety monitoring and control, and
– use in vessels with an international load line.

NOTE 1 When this apparatus is used in industrial premises, national regulations should be observed.

NOTE 2 Apparatus may contain functional modules that are not covered by this standard e.g. measurement of smoke

spot number (see EN 267:2009+A1:2011, Annex A) and/or measurement of indoor ambient air (see EN 50543).
