Canadian Electrical Code,

Bill Burr.

In this article: Section 32 — Fire Alarm Systems, Fire Pumps, and Carbon Monoxide Alarms. The code is a comprehensive document. Sometimes it can seem quite daunting to quickly find the information you need. This series of articles provides a guide to help users find their way through this critical document. This is not intended to replace the notes in Appendix B or the explanations of individual requirements contained in the CEC Handbook, but will hopefully provide some help in navigating the code.

Fire alarm systems Rule 32-100 specifies the requirements for conductors in fire alarm systems, which include copper material, ampacity, use of optical fibre cables, use of stranded conductors, insulation rated at 300 volts, determining wire size for raceways or integral assemblies, and selection in accordance with rules 4-008(1) or 4-020(1).

Fire pumps Rule 32-200 requires that conductors for the supply of a fire pump supplied from the emergency power source have an ampacity not less than 125% of the full load current rating of the motor or sum of multiple motors and auxiliary motors, and be protected from fire exposure to provide continuing operation during a fire as required by the National Building Code of Canada (see Appendix G).
