A secure isolator lockswitch for compliant fire alarm systems

The mains voltage isolation switch has safety at the forefront with a 240VAC 2 pole switching device. It comes as standard with a secure lock switch to prevent unauthorised use, making it compliant with the BS5839 Pt.1 2020 Sect.29.2

BS5839 pt1 2002 states that “Means should be provided for double pole isolation of the mains supply to all parts of the system; the isolation facilities should be suitably sited, in the vicinity of the equipment served, for use by maintenance technicians without the need for access to remote parts of the building. It should be possible to lock the facilities in both the normal and isolate positions to prevent unauthorised use”

The isolation switch is also encased in a red flame retardant enclosure, with clearly marked text and a neon power indicator for easy use. Its key can be removed in both the on or off position and it has a switch 80A surge rating.

Every isolator, switch and protective device that is capable of disconnecting the mains supply to the fire alarm system should be situated in a position inaccessible to unauthorized persons and labelled; FIRE ALARM DO NOT SWITCH OFF.

The supply can only be isolated by an authorised person, by means of a keylock switch which is removable in both ON/OFF positions.

A neon indicator is provided to indicate mains present at the switched output.
