NFPA Stipulations on BMS Logic Claus Interpretation

System (Clause-4.11) e
The logic system for burner 4.11.2
management shall be designed
specifically so that single failure in
that system does not prevent an
appropriate shutdown.
The BMS interlock and alarm 4.11.3

of the following

transmitters that are non-redundant

two transmitters exceeding dedicated to
a present value. BMS
3. The median signal from
three transmitters
