This European Standard specifies requirements, test methods and performance criteria for point smoke detectors that operate using scattered light, transmitted light or ionization, for use in fire detection and fire alarm systems for buildings (see EN 54-1:1996).
"This European Standard includes point smoke detectors that incorporate more than one smoke sensor operating on these principles, and additional requirements and test methods for such detectors are given in Annex N."
For other types of smoke detector, or smoke detectors working on different principles, this standard should only be used for guidance. Smoke detectors with special characteristics and developed for specific risks are not covered by this standard.
