Reference EN 50134-2:1999
Title Alarm systems - Social alarm systems - Part 2: Trigger devices
Project Number 2490
Abstract/Scope This Standard specifies the requirements and tests for manually-activated trigger devices forming part of a social alarm system. This standard only applies to manually-activated trigger devices that transmit the alarm triggering signal to a local unit or controller via cable or wire-free radio transmission, i.e. Push button fixed; Pull switch fixed; Push button portable; Pull activated portable. This standard also gives guidance on automatically-activated trigger devices. For the requirements and tests applicable to such trigger devices, references are made to appropriate CEN/CENELEC standards for fire alarm, gas alarm and intruder alarm system components. This standard does not specify EMC emission or electrical safety requirements. These are covered by other standards.
