Intruder EN Grade Three
DC Door Contact (Grade 3)
AM PIR Passive Infra Red Movement Detector, with Anti-mask Capability (Grade 3)
AM DT Dual Technology Movement Detector, with Anti-mask Capability (Grade 3)
BG Break Glass Detector
For a Grade 3 System, Grade 3 type Anti-mask detectors are a requirement.
DD243 still applies regarding overlapping coverage, so PIR coverage must not overlap.
It is acceptable for DT coverage to overlap with PIR or other DT's.
A 45 second maximum entry timer is permitted, with a further fixed 30 second warning period, before an entry (unconfirmed) Alarm is notified to the ARC.
Notification (Sounders and Signalling)
Grade 3 Systems would normally provide an ATS (preferably Dual path) with at least 1 self powered audible WD (SAB/SCB), or 2 remotely powered WD's.
Grade 3 systems require 24 hours standby when using a ‘Type A' PS.
This can be reduced to 12 hours, providing ‘mains failure' is individually notified to the ARC.
