The EN 50131-2-2 includes four security grades and four environmental classes. The purpose of a detector is to detect the broad spectrum infrared radiation emitted by an intruder and to provide the necessary range of signals or messages to be used by the rest of the intrusion alarm system. The number and scope of these signals or messages will be more comprehensive for systems that are specified at the higher grades.

This European Standard is only concerned with the requirements and tests for the detector. Other types of detector are covered by other documents identified as in EN 50131-2 series.

Manufacturers or distributors of security (intruder of hold-up) products who want to bring such a product on the market.

Only with a certificate it can be proved that the passive infrared detector is compliant to the standard. Normally a certificate will be issued after the testing has been successfully completed. A certificate for this product provides you market access for the European market.
