This Technical Specification provides guidance on the selection, use and maintenance of portable electrical apparatus conforming to EN 50379-1 [4] and EN 50379-2 [5] or EN 50379-3 [6] to: a) measure combustion flue gas parameters of appliances in domestic premises burning 1st, 2nd or 3rd family gases of the following description: 1) Type A, Type B and Type C gas-fired appliances, except those appliances where the appliance instructions (or design, see 7.3.2.1), prohibit combustion sampling, and, 2) all gas-fired appliances for which the appliance manufacturer has provided a purpose-designed combustion sampling point or specific sampling instructions, b) use as a diagnostic instrument to assist an operative: 1) in confirming satisfactory combustion at the time of commissioning, in accordance with appliance instructions or national or local regulations or standards; 2) in confirming satisfactory combustion at the time of servicing in accordance with national or local regulations or standards or following servicing in accordance with appliance instructions; 3) in confirming satisfactory combustion following maintenance, in accordance with appliance instructions or national or local regulations or standards. NOTE 1 Type A, Type B and Type C classification of gas-fired appliances are defined in 3.1.2 and more fully in CEN/TR 1749 [2]. NOTE 2 Existing national or local regulations or standards conflicting with the guidance in this Technical Specification have precedence over this guidance. NOTE 3 It is not the intention of this Technical Specification to suggest that portable electrical combustion flue gas analysers are to be used as a substitute for normal service and maintenance carried out in accordance with the gas appliance instructions. Clause 9 describes how analysers can be used in conjunction with the appliance instructions. NOTE 4 EN 50379-)1 [4] specifies general requirements for the construction, testing and performance of portable spot reading apparatus designed to check the combustion performance of appliances in domestic premises using commercially available fuels. NOTE 5 EN 50379-2 [5] is for apparatus intended to be used for statutory measurements. In several European countries, legal requirements exist for the performance of heating appliances (see EN 50379-1:2012, informative Annex A [4]). Legal consequences resulting from performance measurements makes for strict requirements for the apparatus used (see EN 50379-1:2012, normative Annexes B and C [4]). NOTE 6 EN 50379-3 [6] is for apparatus intended to be used for non-statutory applications, which allows for reduced performance requirements for the portable electrical apparatus. NOTE 7 This Technical Specification deals with the determination of levels of combustion gases carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2) and/or oxygen (O2) in combustion products from gas-fired appliances. Combustion products from gas-fired appliances will contain nitrogen oxides (NOX), predominantly nitrogen monoxide (nitric oxide, NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). This Technical Specification does not deal with the measurement of combustion products such as NOX and aldehydes.

This document specifies general requirements for the construction, testing and performance of electrically operated refrigerant fixed gas detection equipment in safety applications. This document will not specify requirements for portable locating leak detectors for refrigerant application as already covered by EN 14624:2012. This document is applicable to equipment whose primary purpose is to provide an indication, alarm and/or other output function to warn of the presence of refrigerant gases in an industrial or commercial environment and, in some cases, to initiate automatic or manual protective actions. It is applicable to equipment in which the sensor automatically generates an electrical signal when gas is present. This standard does not apply to gas detection equipment: — for non-refrigerant application; — used for air pollution monitoring; — sampling systems, which are not integral part of the gas detection equipment; — open path gas detection; — residential applications; — process control; — for applications in mines; — portable locating leak detectors for refrigerant application.

This European Standard specifies general requirements for the construction, testing and performance of electrically operated carbon monoxide gas detection apparatus, designed for continuous operation in domestic premises. The objective is to detect defective fossil fuel or solid fuel appliances so that they can be repaired or replaced. The function of the standard is not to monitor low levels of CO for health purposes. (Annex F gives recommendations for units displaying low (warning) CO concentrations). The apparatus may be mains-powered or battery-powered. Such apparatus is intended to warn of an acute level of CO, enabling the occupant to react before being exposed to significant risk. Additional requirements for apparatus to be used in recreational vehicles and similar premises are specified in EN 50291-2. NOTE 1 For caravan holiday homes EN 50291-1 applies. This European Standard specifies two types of apparatus, these are: - type A - to provide a visual and audible alarm and an executive action in the form of a transmittable output signal that can be used to actuate directly or indirectly a ventilation or other ancillary device; - type B - to provide a visual and audible alarm only. NOTE 2 Both type A and type B apparatus can be interconnected. This European Standard excludes apparatus for: - the detection of combustible gases, other than carbon monoxide itself (see EN 50194-1); - the detection of CO in industrial installations (see EN 45544-1, EN 45544-2 and EN 45544-3) or commercial premises; - CO measurement for smoke and fire detection; - CO measurement in carparks and tunnels.

This European Standard applies to apparatus for the detection and/or the measurement of carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen monoxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) intended to control a ventilation system and/or to give an indication, alarm or any other signal to warn of a toxic hazard. These three gases are generically called “target gases” for the purpose of this European Standard. National and local regulations might not require detection of NO or NO2 and might require detection of other gases or vapours. This European Standard includes requirements for remote gas sensors (RGS) to be used in car parks and tunnels and requirements for the control unit (CU) to be used in car parks. This European Standard specifies general requirements for construction and testing and describes the test methods that apply to fixed apparatus for the detection and/or the measurement of the concentration of the target gases in car parks and tunnels. This European Standard may also be applied to similar applications where the concentration of the target gases could lead to a risk to health, for example loading areas for trucks and underground bus stations. This European Standard also applies when an apparatus manufacturer makes any claims regarding superior performance that exceeds these minimum requirements. This European Standard applies to apparatus, including the sampling system if applicable. This European Standard does not specify requirements for apparatus to be installed in hazardous areas. This European Standard does not apply for applications already covered by the following standards: – domestic premises, covered by EN 50291-1; – boats, craft, caravans or mobile homes, covered by EN 50291-2; – workplace atmospheres, covered by EN 45544 series; – emissions of heaters, covered by EN 50379 series; – motor vehicles emissions, covered by ISO/PAS 3930; – monitoring of the LEL level of combustible gases, covered by EN 60079-29-1. This European Standard does not apply for the following applications and technologies: – confined spaces not accessible to people; – laboratory or analytical equipment; – apparatus used to control industrial processes; – portable and transportable apparatus; – open path gas detection; – tunnel construction; – monitoring of particulates and dust; – monitoring of combustible gases; – CO monitoring for fire detection.
