Title Alarm systems - Part 4: Electromagnetic compatibility - Product family standard: Immunity requirements for components of fire, intruder and social alarm systems
Project Number 8266
Abstract/Scope This EMC product-family standard, for immunity requirements, applies to the components of the following alarm systems, intended for use in and around buildings in residential, commercial, light industrial and industrial environments: Intruder alarm systems; Hold-up alarm systems; Fire detection and fire alarm systems; Social alarm systems; CCTV systems, for security applications; Access control systems, for security applications. The tests and severities to be used are the same for indoor and outdoor applications of fixed, movable and portable equipment. The levels do not cover extreme cases, which may occur in any location, but with an extremely low probability of occurrence, or in special locations close to powerful emitters (e.g. radar transmitters). Equipment within the scope of this standard should be designed in order to operate satisfactorily in the environmental electromagnetic conditions of residential, commercial, light industrial and industrial environments. This implies particularly that it should be able to operate correctly within the conditions fixed by the electromagnetic compatibility levels for the various disturbances on the low voltage public supply system as defined by ENV 61000-2-2. The Immunity tests in this standard only concern the most critical disturbance phenomena. For equipment using radio signaling, mains signaling or with connections to the public telephone system, additional requirements, from other standards specific to these signaling media, might apply. For the requirements applicable to radio links, reference should be made to the applicable ETSI standard, in accordance with the agreement between ETSI and CENELEC. This standard does not specify basic safety requirements, such as protection against electrical shocks, unsafe operation, insulation coordination and related dielectric tests. This standard does not cover EMC emission requirements. These are covered by other appropriate standards

Normative reference (6)  

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
