Full Voltage Starting Electric


Fire Pump Controllers

DescriptionFiretrol FTA1000 Full Voltage Fire


Pump Controllers are intended for use with electric
motor driven fire pumps where the capacity of the
power source permits full voltage starting. Full voltage is applied to the motor as soon as the controller
is actuated. The controller monitors, displays and
records fire pump system information.
Full voltage starting is simple and low cost and is
preferred whenever the utility or emergency generator
set will permit this type of starting.
ApprovalsFiretrol fire pump controllers are listed
by Underwriters' Laboratories, Inc., in accordance with
UL218, Standard for Fire Pump Controllers, CSA,
Standard for Industrial Control Equipment, and approved by Factory Mutual. They are built to meet or
exceed the requirements of the approving authorities
as well as NEMA and the latest editions of NFPA 20,

Product Description
Part Winding Starting Electric
Fire Pump Controllers

DescriptionFiretrol FTA1250 Part Winding Starting Fire Pump Controllers can be used where the characteristics of the power source do not permit full voltage starting. The controller monitors, displays and
records fire pump system information.
When the controller is actuated by the pressure
switch, START pushbutton, deluge valve contact, etc.,
the first contactor closes, connecting one of the motor windings to the line. During starting, the motor will
draw approximately 65% of its normal locked rotor
current and develop approximately 42% of its normal
starting torque. After a time delay, the second
contactor closes, connecting the second winding in
parallel with the first. The motor then draws its normal
running current and develops its rated torque.
ApprovalsFiretrol fire pump controllers are listed

starting current and torque; 50% tap for 150% current and 25% torque, 65% tap (factory setting) for
250% current and 42% torque and the 80% tap for
384% current and 64% torque.
ApprovalsFiretrol fire pump controllers are listed
by Underwriters' Laboratories, Inc., in accordance with
UL218, Standard for Fire Pump Controllers, CSA,

Product Description
Solid State Starting Electric
Fire Pump Controllers

DescriptionFiretrol FTA1900 Solid State Starting


Fire Pump Controllers feature soft start, soft stop and
system sensing capabilities that not only provide for
reduced voltage starting, but also offer an improved
level of hydromechanical performance. The controller
monitors, displays and records fire pump system information.
When called to run, the motor will accelerate along a
ramp beginning at 40% of normal starting current with
15% of full voltage torque. When stopping, the motor
will ramp down to a preset level and allow for a restart, limiting stress in the piping system. If no additional starting causes are present, the motor will continue to ramp down to a full stop. This controller helps
to reduce water hammer in the system.
ApprovalsFiretrol fire pump controllers are listed
by Underwriters' Laboratories, Inc., in accordance with
UL218, Standard for Fire Pump Controllers, CSA,
Standard for Industrial Control Equipment, and approved by Factory Mutual. They are built to meet or
