NFPA 72-2006 ROP
----------------

If interested you can download the NFPA 72 Report on Proposals here:

WARNING This is a 2.6MB, 203 page pdf document.

If you've heard my tamper switch rant you'll be happy to know that my
proposal to reword the reference to a valve position switch was
accepted:

________________________________________________________________
72-480 Log #330 SIG-TMS Final Action: Accept
(Table 10.4.3, Item 15(n))
________________________________________________________________
SUBMITTER: Michael Baker Gladstone, OR
RECOMMENDATION: Revise Item 15(n) to read "Valve Supervisory
Switches” instead of “Valve Tamper Switches."
SUBSTANTIATION:
A) The test item 15(n) is referring to is the
semi-annual functional test of switches used to supervise valve
position.
B) The current terminology is confusing in light of the requirements
of Section 6.8.5.10.1, which require certain sprinkler system alarm
and supervisory signal initiating devices to be made tamper resistant;
a function that is typically accomplished using a tamper switch
installed inside the valve position switch housing.
C) The intent of the test in Table 10.4.3 is to verify the
functionality of the valve position switches, which generate a
supervisory off-normal condition. It is not intended to require a
semi-annual test of their associated tamper switches, which are
arranged to indicate a trouble condition.
D) Consistency in wording is helpful to all users of the Code and
facilitates education efforts within the industry.
COMMITTEE MEETING ACTION: Accept
NUMBER ELIGIBLE TO VOTE: 26
BALLOT RESULTS: Affirmative: 25
BALLOT NOT RETURNED: 1 ROCHHOLZ
