Title Alarm systems - Intrusion and hold-up systems - Part 5-4: System compatibility testing for I&HAS equipments located in supervised premises
Project Number 22577
Abstract/Scope This Technical Specification details methods and tests for compatibility assessment of system components, including a CIE, intended to be used in intruder and hold up alarm systems complying with EN 50131-1. This includes: • I&HAS components for which EN 50131 series product standards exist; • I&HAS components for which no EN 50131 series product standards currently exist; • I&HAS components that include additional functionality outside the scope of EN 50131-1 or shared with another system; • non-I&HAS components used to supplement the functionality of the system, but which are not required by EN 50131-1 (e.g. printer). The assessment and testing covered by this Technical Specification focuses on verifying the functionality of each event type from source to destination between components. It is not intended to repeat specific tests contained within the relevant product standard, but does include the verification that there are no adverse affects on mandatory EN 50131 functions as a result of the intended use of the components. This Technical Specification does not detail the manner in which an I&HAS is designed, installed and used in any particular application. This Technical Specification recognizes that it is not practical to assess the compatibility of components in all possible configurations and conditions. Methods of assessment are specified to reach an acceptable degree of confidence within pre-determined configurations and conditions. This Technical Specification is applicable to components connected to CIE whether the components are interconnected by electrical wires, wire-free links or other means. The test programme developed to assess compatibility may be undertaken as part of a programme to assess the performance of a component according to a part of EN 50131.

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.
