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.

This document provides guidelines for the application of automatic fire detection and fire alarm systems in and around buildings. The guideline covers planning, design, installation, commissioning, use and maintenance of the systems.
The guidelines cover systems intended for the protection of life and/or the protection of property. The guidelines cover systems with a control and indicating equipment and at least one manual call point or one fire detector. In the event of a fire the systems may be capable of providing signals to initiate the operation of ancillary equipment (such as fixed fire extinguishing systems) and other precautions and actions (such as machinery shutdown or remote transmission of alarms). These guidelines do not cover the ancillary services themselves or ancillary circuits to interface with them.
The guidelines do not cover systems combining fire alarm functions with other non-fire related functions.
The guidelines do not recommend whether or not an automatic fire detection and/or fire alarm system should be installed in any given premises.
These guidelines should be used by appropriately competent persons. However, guidance is also given to other persons purchasing or using a fire detection and / or fire alarm system.
Smoke alarms according to EN 14604 are not fire detection and fire alarm systems.

These requirements relate to national regulations and can vary from member state to member state.

This European Standard applies to resettable line-type heat detectors consisting of a sensing element using an optical fibre, a pneumatic tube or an electrical sensor cable connected to a sensor control unit, either directly or through an interface module, intended for use in fire detection and fire alarm systems installed in and around buildings and other civil engineering works (see EN 54-1:2011).
This European Standard specifies the requirements and performance criteria, the corresponding test methods and provides for the Assessment and Verification of Constancy of Performance (AVCP) of resettable line-type heat detectors to this EN.
This European Standard also covers resettable line-type heat detectors intended for use in the local protection of plant and equipment.
Resettable line-type heat detectors with special characteristics and developed for specific risks are not covered by this EN.
This European Standard does not cover line-type heat detectors that are based on non-resettable, fixed temperature electrical cables (so called digital systems).

This European Standard specifies requirements, test methods and performance criteria for point-type multi-sensor fire detectors for use in fire detection systems installed in buildings (see EN 54 1:2011), incorporating in one mechanical enclosure at least one optical or ionization smoke sensor and at least one heat sensor. The overall fire detection performance is determined utilizing the combination of the detected phenomena.
This European Standard provides for the assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) of point detectors using a combination of smoke and heat sensors to this EN.
Point detectors using a combination of smoke and heat sensors having special characteristics suitable for the detection of specific fire risks are not covered by this European Standard. The performance requirements for any additional functions are beyond the scope of this European Standard (e.g. additional features or enhanced functionality for which this European Standard does not define a test or assessment method).
NOTE   Certain types of detector contain radioactive materials. The national requirements for radiation protection differ from country to country and they are not specified in this European Standard.

This European Standard specifies the requirements, test methods and performance criteria for point smoke detectors that operate using scattered light, transmitted light or ionization, for use in fire detection and fie alarm systems for buildings (see EN 54-1: 1996).
For other types of smoke detector, or for smoke detectors working on different principles, this standard should only be used for guidance.  Smoke detectors with special characteristics and developed for specific risks are not covered by this standard.
