Overview

Firetrol® FTA740 Single Phase Limited Service Controllers are intended for use with small 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.

Limited Service Controllers may be used where they are acceptable to the authority having jurisdiction.

Firetrol® fire pump controllers are listed by Underwriters’ Laboratories, Inc., in accordance with UL218, Standard for Fire Pump Controllers, and CSA, Standard for Industrial Control Equipment. They are built to meet or exceed the requirements of the approving authorities as well as NEMA and the latest editions of NFPA 20, Installation of Centrifugal Fire Pumps, and NFPA 70, National Electrical Code.
