Firetrol FTA200A Remote Alarm Panels for use with Electric Fire Pump Controllers
Firetrol® FTA200 alarm panels are designed to meet the NFPA 20 specifications requiring a remote alarm panel when the pump house or pump room is not constantly attended. The alarm panel must be installed in a location that is under supervision at all times.
These alarm panels are listed by Underwriter’s Laboratories, Inc., in accordance with UL508, Standard for Industrial Controls, certified by CSA, Standard for Industrial Control Equipment (cUL) and approved by Factory Mutual. They are designed to meet or exceed the requirements of the approving authorities listed above as well as NFPA 20, Installation of Centrifugal Fire Pumps.
The following are included as standard with each controller:
Type FTA200A – Type A panels provide audible and visible alarm indication for the following conditions:
• Supervisory Power On
• Power / Phase Failure
• Phase Reversal
• Pump Room Alarm
• Motor Trouble
• Motor Running
Type FTA200AA – Type AA panels provide audible and visible alarm indications for 2 separate electric controllers utilizing 1
alarm panel enclosure.
Construction – FTA200 alarm panels make use of printed circuit boards that provide reliable and trouble-free service. The enclosures are NEMA Type 1 (IEC IP20) for indoor wall mounting. A bottom entry gland plate is provided in the enclosure. The standard enclosure color is red. Mounted on the enclosure door are LED’s for visible alarm indication, the SILENCE push-button, and the LAMP TEST push-button. An alarm bell for audible indication is mounted on the side of the enclosure. Each LED will illuminate to indicate its alarm condition and will remain lit until the abnormal condition has been corrected.
The audible alarm will sound when the alarm conditions occur and will continue to sound until the abnormal condition has been corrected or the SILENCE push-button has been pressed. Pressing the SILENCE push-button will silence the audible alarm but will not extinguish the LED. If another alarm condition occurs the audible alarm will again sound until silenced by the SILENCE push-button or until the abnormal condition has been corrected. The LAMP TEST push-button is supplied for manually testing the LED’s.
The main fire pump controller shall be a factory assembled, wired and tested unit.
Standards, Listings & Approvals
The controller shall conform to all the requirements of the latest editions of:
- NFPA 20, Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection
- NFPA 70, National Electrical Code.
- Factory Mutual (FM)
The controller shall be listed by:
- Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., in accordance with UL508, Standard for Industrial Controls
- Canadian Standards Association CSA-C22.2, Standard for Industrial Control Equipment (cUL)
The controller components shall be housed in a NEMA Type 1 (IEC IP20) drip-proof, a wall-mounted enclosure with a bottom entry gland plate.
