This standard specifies requirements for design, planning, installation, operation and maintenance for fire alarm systems in conjunction with DIN VDE Alarm systems for fire, instrusion and hold-up; Requirements for fire detection and alarm systems. Alarm systems for fire, intrusion and hold up; Part 2: Requirements for fire alarm systems.

As well as the established method of alerting with audible signaling devices, additional alerting can be provided by visual signaling devices. They must not only comply with the standards, but also be economical and as effective as possible.
Gestion des risques Author s: For example, it specifies that throughout the coverage area a minimum light intensity of 0. The requirements of the product standard EN have been implemented with the publication of the revised design and project planning rules stipulated in DIN VDE There are definitions for three different approval categories and associated forms of coverage volume which have an impact on the number and installation location of signaling devices in the area to be reached by the signal.
This is stated 1: Fire protection in accordance with VDE A clear light can be permitted in some circumstances, with the alarm system concept determined jointly by the operator and the authorities responsible.
November Number of pages: April Number of pages: The geometry of the coverage volume is specified for the “W” wall installation and “C” ceiling installation categories. Fire protection in accordance with VDE – changes relating to visual signaling devices in fire alarm systems.

On the other hand, Category “O” open installation allows the manufacturer to describe the coverage volume in any way or to design the best possible coverage volume for specific applications and constructions. NF S February Installation rules for fire detection systems. Test yourself or your business online. Safety instructions and information – Orders and instructions, evacuation plans, intervention plans, safety plans and safety technical documentation.
As such, he or she must determine with the authorities responsible, the designer and possibly the installer of the fire alarm system FAS measures such as how to create an audible and if relevant visual alarm system to meet the requirements of certain areas.
Code s Theme s For visual alarm systems, the individual coverage volumes in the relevant approval category must now be arranged so that they cover the whole of the space throughout which the signal is to be seen.
Furthermore, increasing numbers cin people worldwide suffer from hearing defects and for them a purely audible alerting system is not effective. This applies to production sites as well as administrative and public buildings. Devices with M12 plug Art Illumination Accessories. Vd components are largely harmonized in the EN 54 series of European standards.
Fire alarm systems in both cases fulfill their purpose of allowing fire to be detected at an early stage, irrespective of whether people are present or not, so that appropriate action can be taken without delay.
This is because almost every machine will have a red signaling device and this can lead to confusion and failure to identify a possible fire alarm clearly.
Option to visualize changes at a glance. They set out the general requirements of the devices and the technical parameters used to calculate coverage volumes for audible signaling devices. In an emergency such as a fire, it must be guaranteed that every person present in the affected area — even those with impaired ability to hear or see — are immediately and unambiguously alerted and evacuated as quickly as possible.

Fire protection in accordance with VDE – Pfannenberg
Knowing the actual coverage volume of the signaling devices provides as much certainty as possible throughout the whole project phase and guarantees that the alarm system will be compliant with the standards, thus achieving the objectives and preventing costs from rising excessively. The following article explains the significance of this development for suppliers, installers and designers of fire alarm systems. Accessible building regulations are set out in DIN Industrial buildings normally have high ceilings and large surface areas which clearly define the coverage volume.
Affiliation List of ICS codes. The ceiling height was just under 10 meters. This must reflect the distinction between industrial applications and applications in public buildings, which each xin their own requirements.
DIN VDE – October
Alarm systems for fire, intrusion and hold up – Part 2: The provisions of the standard for visual signaling devices in fire alarm systems, DIN ENare legally binding in Germany. Depending on the status of implementation in building legislation in the federal states, the “two senses principle” should apply to alerting systems.
For example, EN audible signaling devices and EN visual signaling devices stipulate the requirements that signaling devices must fulfill if they are to be used in fire alarm systems. Conventional systems are preferred for industrial situations as they offer more flexibility in terms of critical power consumption and despite requiring more cabling are a more economical solution. The ZVEI fact sheet 1 summarizes the principles and challenges of visual alarm systems:
