WHAT IS PD6662:2010?
PD6662:2010 is a revision of the PD6662:2004 document, to which
British alarm installers have been working. There has been a dual
running of the two standards since 31st May 2010, and from 1st June
2012 only PD6662:2010 can be used. The documents which are
incorporated into the British PD6662:2010 scheme are:
◊ EN50131-1:2006+A1:2009 (General Requirements)
◊ EN50131-3:2009 (Control and Indicating Equipment)
◊ EN50131-6:2008 (Power Supplies)
◊ DD CLC/TS 50131-7:2008 (Installation Guidelines)
◊ EN50131-8:2009 (Fog device systems)
◊ BS8243:2010 (Configuration for Confirmed Alarms)
◊ DD263:2010 (Maintenance and Remote Support)
PD6662:2010 will be required for new installations that need a URN
for police response or for existing installations where a new URN is
Pyronix and Castle have been actively involved with the bodies
writing the new standards and have been working to make sure that
all products will meet the requirements and will be ready for
installation prior to the changeover. In this document we will cover
the changes relating to installations in the UK.
The biggest part of the change from the installer’s point of view is
DD243. It has been replaced with BS8243 and includes changes
that will be of benefit to installers and their clients.
BS8243 is just one part of the overall change and we cannot pick
and choose which part of the standards we can use. It is all or
nothing, and we have a deadline of 1st June 2012 at which point the
old PD6662:2004 will no longer be available to us so we will have
made the switch by then.
All Grade 3 devices must have an off-the-wall tamper switch.
Tell me, and I'll forget. Show me, and I'll remember. Involve me, and I'll learn.
