Alarm systems - Alarm transmission systems and equipment - Part 3: Requirements for Receiving Centre Transceiver (RCT)

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.

Systèmes d'alarme - Systèmes et équipements de transmission d'alarme - Partie 3: Exigences pour les transmetteurs du centre de réception (RCT)

La présente Norme Européenne spécifie les exigences matérielles minimales relatives au fonctionnement, à la fiabilité, à la résilience, à la sécurité et à la sûreté des transmetteurs du centre de réception (RCT) installés dans l'ARC et utilisés dans les systèmes de transmission d’alarme. Les exigences et les classifications des systèmes de transmission d’alarme sont définies dans la EN 50136-1. Différents types de systèmes d’alarme peuvent, outre des messages d’alarme, envoyer d’autres types de messages, par exemple des messages de défaut et des messages d’état. Ces messages sont également considérés comme des messages d'alarme. Le terme message d'alarme est utilisé dans ce sens large dans le document.  Si des normes spécifiques à l'application existent, il convient que le RCT satisfasse aux normes correspondantes mentionnées par cette application. Le RCT peut être soit un élément intégré d'équipement de réception/d'annonce, soit un dispositif autonome. Dans les deux cas, il convient que les exigences de la présente Norme Européenne s'appliquent. Le RCT a pour fonction de surveiller les ATP, de recevoir les messages d'alarme, de transmettre les messages d'alarme vers un ou plusieurs AE et d'envoyer des accusés de réception aux SPT. La gestion du réseau de transmission ne fait pas partie du domaine d’application de la présente Norme Européenne.

“For compliance to the relevant standards of the application, the RCT shall monitor ATP and ATS.

Failures shall be reported to the AMS as defined in EN 50136-1:2012 , 6.6, Table 4 and made available

to the ATSP.”

Replace the title of 6.6 from “Interface(s) to the AE(s)” to “Interface(s) to the AMS(s)”.

In 6.6, replace the 2nd paragraph with:

“The manufacturer shall state in their product documentation the specifications of the interface(s) to the

I (AMS) and how the fault signal is presented and logged.”

In 6.7, replace the entire subclause with the following:

“The RCT shall have a means to signal faults when any of the following faults occur:

— transmission link failure between RCT (or RCT-A for hosted solution) and AMS (I );

RCT
It may not be possible to signal this failure to the AMS over a failed link.
— in case of hosted solution, transmission link failure between RCT-H and RCT-A;

— transmission network interfaces between RCT (or for hosted solution RCT-H) and SPT (for example

encryption issue);
— internal RCT system failure including time deviation after the commissioning.

The manufacturer shall specify in the RCT documentation how these faults are signalled to the AMS

and to the ATSP. The manufacturer shall describe how this can be tested.”
