    Dealing with a nuclear reactor's design and its components, how would you translate "plant-wide alarm systems" ?

    My attempt :

    "les systèmes d'alarme à l'échelle de la centrale"
    but this sounds like "literal translation" though it's quite clear

    maybe I've got the meaning with :
    "les systèmes d'alarme généraux" ?
    "les systèmes d'alarme centraux" ?

    thanks for your clues...

    Et pourquoi pas "les systèmes d'alarmes du site" ?
    (plant-wide = couvrant l'ensemble du site industriel)
