Over deze norm
This European Standard specifies the requirements and methods of test for manual call points in fire detection and fire alarm systems in and around buildings. It takes into account indoor and outdoor conditions, the appearance and operation of the manual call points for type A "direct operation" and type B "indirect operation" and covers those which are simple mechanical switches, those which are fitted with simple electronic components (e.g. resistors, diodes) and those which contain active electronic components and which work with the control panels for signalling and identifying, for example, an address or location. This European Standard specifies also requirements for the evaluation of conformity and the marking of manuals call points (see Annex ZA). This European standard does not cover manual call points for special applications, for example flame proof manual call points, or for use in hazardous conditions but can be used in conjunction with additional requirements or tests required for these special applications. Manual call points for special applications, such as ATEX will require testing above and beyond this European standard however should they by design in addition to meeting the specific requirements of their application be compliant with all clauses of this European standard they are considered to be covered by the standard.
