IEC 62599-1 pdf download – Alarm systems – Part 1: Environmental test methods
1 scope
This part of lEC 62599 specifies environmental test methods to be used for testing the systemcomponents of the following alarm systems, intended for use in and around buildings:
a) access control systems, for security applications;
b) alarm transmission systems1;
c) cCTV systems, for security applications;d) combined and/or integrated systems;e) intruder and hold-up alarm systems;
f) remote receiving and/or surveillance centres;g) social alarm systems.
This part specifies three equipment classes (fixed,movable and portable equipment) and fourenvironmental classes.
The environmental classes only include the general service environments envisaged forequipment installed in typical residential, commercial and industrial environments. lt may benecessary for the product standard to require additional or different environmental tests orseverities where
1) there could be specific environmental problems (e.g. some different severities may berequired for break glass detectors stuck to glass windows, due to the local extremes oftemperature and humidity),
2) the test exposure falls within the intended detection phenomenon of the detector (e.g.during a vibration test on a seismic detector).
ln order to provide reproducible test methods and to avoid the proliferation of technically similartest methods,the test procedures have been chosen,where possible,from internationallyaccepted standards.(e.g. IEC publications). For specific guidance on these tests,referenceshouid be made to the appropriate document,indicated in the relevant subclauses.For moregeneral guidance and background information on environmental testing reference should bemade to TEC 60068-1 and lEC 6o068-3.
This standard does not specify
the requirements or performance criteria to be applied, which should be specified in therelevant product standard,
special tests only applicable to a particular device (e.g. the effects of turbulent airdraughts on ultrasonic movement detectors),
ili)basic safety requirements,such as protection against electrical shocks,unsafe
operation, insulation coordination and related dielectric tests,
tests relating to deliberate acts of damage or tampering.

3 Terms, definitions and abbreviations
For the purposes of this document, the following terms, definitions and abbreviations apply.
3.1 Terms and definitions3.1.1
intruder alarm system
alarm system that detects and indicates the presence,entry or attempted entry of an intruderinto supervised premises
hold-up alarm system
alarm system designed to permit the deliberate creation of an alarm condition in the case of ahold-up
social alarm system
alarm system providing facilities to summon assistance for use by persons who can beconsidered to be living at risk
fixed equipment
equipment fastened to a support or otherwise secured in a specific location, or equipment notprovided with a carrying handle and having such a mass that it cannot easily be moved.( intruder alarm system control panel screwed to the wall)
movable equipment
equipment which is not fixed equipment and which is not normally in operation while thelocation is changed.(e.g. a local unit or controller for a social alarm system , which is placed ona table top)
portable equipment
equipment designed to be in operation while being carried.(e.g. access control “Smart card”badge,electronic key,social alarm trigger device carried by the user)
