I find difficulties understanding the NFPA 72 table 18.104.22.168 clause 27(g) - (g) Performance-based technologies.
To what exactly this is referring to ?.
Is it the communication from a local panel to a supervisory central panel or something different ?.
To clarify things i have a gas release local panel to a room that is communicating 4 alarms ( gas discharge, fire stage 1 , fire stage 2 , general fault ) at a central fire alarm and detection panel in the same building at a different floor.
The communication is being done via 4 communication modules that are doing the "translation" as panels are from different company. ( the 4 modules are from the centralized panel company )
As per this clause do i need to check monthly the communication of the 2 panels via the 4 modules ?
Thanks for your help in advance.
