Fire detection and fire alarm systems - Part 13: Compatibility and connectability assessment of system components

This document specifies the requirements for compatibility and connectability assessment of components of fire detection and fire alarm system or voice alarm system as a subsystem of fire detection and fire alarm system. The components comply either with the requirements of EN 54 or with a manufacturer’s specification where there is no EN 54 standard. This document only includes system requirements when these are necessary for compatibility assessment.
This document covers transmission path only between components. However ,requirements for TP between components of a function which is distributed are covered by the relevant EN 54 standard and not by this document.
This document also specifies requirements for the integrity of the fire detection and fire alarm system when connected to other systems.
This document does not specify the manner in which the system is designed, installed and used in any particular application.
This document recognizes that it is not practical to assess the compatibility or connectability of components in all possible configurations. Methods of assessment are specified to reach an acceptable degree of confidence within pre-determined operational and environmental conditions.
This document specifies requirements related to compatibility and connectability assessment methods and tests for the components belonging to FDAS or connecting FDAS. This document does not cover components or functions which are not included in a FDAS.
This document is applicable to systems where the components are interconnected by electrical wires or optical fibre or by radio frequency links or by any combination. For other interconnection technology between components , this standard may be used as a guidance.
NOTE Other European Standards are expected to cover the requirements of the other systems to which the fire detection and fire alarm system may be connected.

Systèmes de détection incendie - Partie 13: Évaluation de la compatibilité et de l'aptitude au raccordement des composants d'un système

La présente Norme européenne spécifie les exigences relatives à l’évaluation de la compatibilité et de l’aptitude au raccordement des composants des systèmes de détection et d’alarme incendie (y compris les systèmes d'alarme vocale en tant que sous-système du système de détection et d’alarme incendie). Les composants sont conformes soit aux exigences de l’EN 54, soit aux spécifications du fabricant en l’absence de la partie applicable de l’EN 54.
Les exigences relatives à la voie de transmission utilisée dans une fonction répartie sont couvertes par la partie correspondante de l’EN 54 et non par le présent document.
Le présent document spécifie également les exigences relatives à l’intégrité du système de détection et d’alarme incendie lorsque ce dernier est raccordé à d’autres systèmes.
Le présent document ne spécifie pas la manière dont le système est conçu, installé et utilisé pour une application particulière quelconque.
Il est admis dans le présent document qu’il n’est pas possible d’évaluer la conformité ou l’aptitude au raccordement des composants dans toutes les configurations possibles. Des méthodes d’évaluation sont donc spécifiées qui permettent de tirer des conclusions présentant un degré de confiance acceptable dans des conditions opérationnelles et environnementales prédéterminées.

Sistemi za odkrivanje in javljanje požara ter alarmiranje - 13. del: Ocenjevanje združljivosti in povezljivosti sestavnih delov sistemov

Ta dokument določa zahteve za ocenjevanje združljivosti in povezljivosti sestavnih delov sistema za odkrivanje in javljanje požara ali sistemov glasovnega javljanja, ki delujejo kot podsistem sistema za odkrivanje in javljanje požara. Sestavni deli so skladni z zahtevami standarda EN 54 ali s specifikacijo proizvajalca, če ni veljavnega standarda EN 54. Ta dokument vključuje samo sistemske zahteve, če so potrebne za oceno združljivosti. Ta dokument zajema samo pot prenosa med sestavnimi deli. Vendar so zahteve za pot prenosa med sestavnimi deli porazdeljene funkcije zajete v ustreznem standardu EN 54 in ne v tem dokumentu. Ta dokument določa tudi zahteve za celovitost sistema za odkrivanje in javljanje požara, ko je povezan z drugimi sistemi. Ta dokument ne določa načina zasnove, namestitve in uporabe sistema pri kateri koli posamezni uporabi. Ta dokument upošteva, da ocena združljivosti ali povezljivosti sestavnih delov v vseh mogočih konfiguracijah ni praktična. Metode za oceno so določene na način, s katerim se doseže sprejemljiva stopnja zaupanja v okviru vnaprej določenih obratovalnih in okoljskih pogojev. Ta dokument določa zahteve v zvezi z metodami za ocenjevanje združljivosti in povezljivosti ter preskuse sestavnih delov, ki so del sistema za odkrivanje in javljanje požara ali so z njim povezani. Ta dokument ne zajema sestavnih delov ali funkcij, ki niso del sistema za odkrivanje in javljanje požara. Ta dokument se uporablja za sisteme, pri katerih so sestavni deli medsebojno povezani z električnimi žicami ali optičnimi vlakni, prek radiofrekvenčnih povezav ali s kombinacijo navedenih možnosti. Za drugo tehnologijo medsebojnega povezovanja sestavnih delov se ta standard lahko uporablja kot vodilo. OPOMBA: Predvideno je, da druge sisteme, s katerimi so lahko sistemi za odkrivanje in javljanje požara povezani, obravnavajo drugi evropski standardi.

Introduction

The fire detection function is to detect a fire at the earliest practicable moment, and to give signals and

indications so that appropriate action can be taken.

The fire alarm function is to give, at least, audible and/or visible signals to the occupants of a building

who may be at risk from fire.

A fire detection and fire alarm system (including voice alarm system) may combine the functions of

detection and alarm in a single system, and typically consists of a number of inter-linked components

including automatic fire detectors, manual call points and alarm devices. These components are

connected to control and indicating equipment by means of one or more transmission paths. All system

components, including the control and indicating equipment, are also directly or indirectly connected to

a power supply.

A separate voice alarm system can be assessed for compatibility and connectability independently of

the fire detection and alarm system.

A fire detection and fire alarm system may also be linked to remote fault and fire alarm monitoring

stations, and to fire protection and/or building management systems. However these systems are not

considered as part of the fire detection and fire alarm system.

It is necessary that all the components constituting the fire detection and fire alarm system are

compatible or connectable, and that requirements relating to the performance of the overall system are

fulfilled.

Differentiation is made between components classified as components type 1 and other components

classified as components type 2.

As the possible configurations of fire detection and fire alarm systems are unlimited, the assessment is

only carried out on the configuration(s) declared by the applicant.

The intended use of this standard is to demonstrate the compatibility and connectability of components

even if they are not defined by an EN 54 standard.

1 Scope

This European Standard specifies the requirements for compatibility and connectability assessment of

components of fire detection and fire alarm systems (including voice alarm systems as a subsystem of

fire detection and fire alarm system). The components conform to either with the requirements of

EN 54 or with a manufacturer’s specification where there is no EN 54 standard.

The requirements for the transmission path used for a distributed function are covered by the relevant

EN 54 standard and not by this document.

This document also specifies requirements for the integrity of the fire detection and fire alarm system

when connected to other systems.

This document does not specify the manner in which the system is designed, installed and used in any

particular application.

This document recognizes that it is not practical to assess the compatibility or connectability of

components in all possible configurations. Methods of assessment are specified to reach an acceptable

degree of confidence within pre-determined operational and environmental conditions.

This document specifies requirements related to compatibility and connectability assessment methods

and tests for the components belonging to FDAS or connecting FDAS.

This document does not cover components or functions which are not included in a FDAS like functions

achieved by a building management system.

This document is applicable to systems where the components are interconnected by electrical wires or

optical fibre or by radio frequency links or by any combination. For other interconnection technology

between components this standard may be used as a guidance.

NOTE Other European Standards are expected to cover the requirements of the other systems which may be

connected to the fire detection and fire alarm system.
