Status : Current   Published : October 2014



This European Standard specifies the requirements, test methods and performance criteria for fire alarm sounders, including voice sounders, in a fixed installation intended to signal an audible warning between the fire detection and fire alarm systems and the occupants of a building (see EN 54‑1:2011).

This European Standard provides for the assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) of fire alarm sounders to this EN.

This European Standard is not intended to cover:

  1. loudspeaker type devices primarily intended for emitting emergency voice messages that are generated from an external audio source;

  2. supervisory sounders, for example, within the control and indicating equipment.
