Control and Indicating Equipment

Control and indicating equipment is equipment for receiving, processing, controlling, indicating and initiating the onward transmission of information used in fire alarm systems. We’re proud to be able to test and certify these products at our testing centre of excellence, Kitemark House, where we work with manufacturers from around the world.

Here are some of the main standards we test and certify against in this product range:

BS EN 54-2:1997+A1:2006
Fire detection and fire alarm systems control and indicating equipment

BS EN 54-4:1998
Fire detection and fire alarm systems power supply equipment

BS EN 54-13:2005
This is the standard to determine that the components of a fire detection and fire alarm system are compatible and/or connectable with each other.

System compatibility approval is a growing requirement with European national regulatory authorities to meet their national installation guidelines. There is also an increasing need from specifiers for fire detection and alarm systems equipment installed in commercial premises to be BS EN 54-13 compliant.

BS EN 12094-1:2003

Fixed fire fighting systems – components for gas extinguishing systems – requirements and test methods for electrical automatic control and delay devices.

In addition, to CE marking and BSI Kitemark schemes against the required standards for CIEs and ECDs, BSI can offer full compliance testing against Electro Magnetic Compatability (EMC) and the Low Voltage Directive (LVD), and are also a Notified Body for the Marine Equipment Directive (MED).

BSI Kitemark certification schemes for these products will automatically qualify against CE marking compliance.
