Lol,

A model pmv was in 4737. Using you co. Manual to flesh it out

Get on site, flash id badge, check against spec / on site docs, wall test, measure volts current & circuits, bells plus REM signals record in log bog ECT..

(Best I can do off a phone )

also full set test where possible, not just toggling o/p's. On larger sites where bi-annuals then document which devices are tested as you may not do 100% per visit, but must do 100% over 12m. Document any changes/shortcomings and advise of no PA's whilst you have the system on test.

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Something like this:

The alarm system detailed in this design proposal will be maintained in accordance with the EN 50131-1:2004/PD6662 and DD CLC/TS 50131-7:2003 series. 2 maintenance services will be carried out per year, consisting:

A Test tamper detection

B Test setting & unsetting

C Check entry & exit procedures

D Test power supply & circuits

E Test operation of detectors

F Operation of warning devices

G Test operation of ATE

This is what we use

Do you really do all those checks for every maintenance reidy? :fear:

Check bell delay(if programmed) and shut off times

on every maintenance?

I wonder how many check every tamper circuit/

:ninja:

That's the form we got from the NSI, so I guess that's what they think we should be doing

just out of curiosity how many actually check tampers on all devices during a routine maintenance.

Never checked all tampers but more than often checked some. Bell delay done on full set check.

Why do you ask anyway?

i asked because every maintenance sheet i have ever seen always has that on it.

if we were to check all tampers we wouldnt get as many calls done and im sure cause more problems then when we started

The same will bell cut off timers.

im sure the majority of engineers never test that feature and just rely on there judgement taking into account the age and condition of the bell in general.

depends on size, complexity & risk.

tamper wise, tend to rotate selected each visit. using fsl is an advantage.

How is using fsl an advantage ?

the tamper could still be disconnected inside the detector can it not

It could but it should have been checked on commissioning of the system and if its set up for engineer/anti code no one can open a device without you knowing.

OLd enough to remember 9500 lims.Would not advise checking tampers on them each visit !

Yep through a quirk of fate I'm still working 9500/3400 systems..Regularly. I love 'em though. You can crash some of them just by literally just 'manipulating' the relay card but you can still have them reprogrammed in a few minutes. Sadly since they discontinued the LIMs they now get replaced when they extend the buildings. Got to say they have lasted longer on the whole than many newer panels and expanders I have fitted. Quality engineering.

I was all posh today though...Crashed and reprogrammed a Galaxy 3..
