BS IEC 61559-1 pdf download Radiation protection instrumentation in nuclear facilities — Centralized systems for continuous monitoring of radiation and/or levels of radioactivity — Part 1 : General requirements
This part of IEC 61559 series applies to centralized systems intended for continuousmonitoring of radiation and/or levels of radioactivity installed in nuclear facilities，primarily insupport of radiological protection in the working areas. This standard specifies generalcharacteristics，general test procedures,radiation，electrical， safety，and environmentalcharacteristics and the identification certificate for the systems addressed by this standard.
More specifically, it applies to centralized data processing systems, data links, and equipmentsitting and layout. It also applies to indications displayed locally and centrally. lt gives generalguidance to the specification，operation, and testing of computers for the centralizedmonitoring function.
Typically these centralized systems play an auxiliary or indirect role in the achievement ormaintenance of nuclear facility’s safety.These are classified as category C in lEC 61226since they include functions that have some safety significance.
lt does not directly apply to the design and testing of detection and measurement assemblies.These should, wherever practical, conform to relevant lEC specifications.
This standard applies to normal monitoring functions.IEC 61559-2 applies to Requirementsfor Discharge，Environmental,Accident, or Post-Accident Monitoring Functions.
For Radiation monitoring equipment for accident and post-accident conditions in nuclearpower plants see lEC 60951.
This standard does not apply to criticality alarm systems.These shall conform to lEC 60860.

category C classification
category that denotes functions that play an auxiliary or indirect role in the achievement or maintenance of NPP safety; it includes functions that have some safety significance, but are not category A or B
[IEC 61 226]
NOTE Category C denotes systems that have:
a) functions used to prevent or mitigate a minor radioactive release, or minor degradation of fuel, within the NPP design basis,
b) functions to warn personnel or to ensure its safety during or following events that involve or result in release of radioactivity in the NPP, or risk of radiation exposure.
