• 1500 HP (1119 kW) @ 2300 Volts
• 2000 HP (1492 kW) @ 3300 Volts
• 2500 HP (1865 kW) @ 4160 Volts
• 3000 HP (2238 kW) @ 5500 Volts
• 3000 HP (2238 kW) @ 6000 Volts
• 3250 HP (2425 kW) @ 6300 Volts
• 3500 HP (2611 kW) @ 6600 Volts
• 3500 HP (2611 kW) @ 6900 Volts
• 3500 HP (2611 kW) @ 7200 Volts
Firetrol fire pump controllers are listed by Underwriters
Laboratories, Inc., in accordance with UL 218, Standard for Fire
Pump Controllers, CSA, Standard for Industrial Control Equipment (cUL), 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, Standard
for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection, and
NFPA 70, National Electrical Code.
The Firetrol® Mark IIXG medium voltage fire pump controller
monitors, displays and records fire pump system information.
The system is standard on all Firetrol medium voltage electric
fire pump controllers. The standard USB host controller and
port allows recording of events/alarms to a Flash Memory Disk.
Depending on the capacity of the flash disk utilized, the amount
of data saved could easily cover the lifetime of the controller.
The data is recorded in text (.txt file) format and can easily be
reviewed using popular software such as Microsoft® Word® or
Door mounted display/interface panel featuring a 128 x 64
pixel backlit LCD Graphical Display, Membrane Type User Control
Push-buttons and easy to read LED Indicators for:
