Fire detection and fire alarm systems - Part 5: Heat detectors - Point heat detectors
This European Standard specifies the requirements, test methods and performance criteria for point heat detectors intended for use in fire detection and fire alarm systems installed in and around buildings (see EN 54-1:2011).
This European Standard provides for the assessment of verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) of point heat detectors to this EN.
For other types of heat detector, or for detectors intended for use in other environments, this standard should only be used for guidance.
Heat detectors with special characteristics and developed for specific risks are not covered by this standard.
