FIRE FIGHTING CONTROLLER HOME PAGE

The Be126 NFPA20 fire pump controller is designed to control and monitor 12 or 24 volt, diesel fire pump engine used in NFPA 20 or UNI-EN 12845 compliant firefighting application. It features state-of-art multiprocessor structure providing embedded water pressure data logger capable of storing up to 31 days of data. Be126 interfaces with standard or SAE J1939 compatible diesel engines. This NFPA 20 fire pump controller monitors, displays and records engine information as well. The NFPA 20 fire pump controller automatically starts the diesel engine from water pressure control or non-automatically from manual electric control. It initiates a weekly program test of the system and records analog water pressure measurements. The NFPA 20 fire pump controller features RS232 and RS485 serial interfaces. You can connect the Be126 to the Internet via TCP-IP server. The Be126 displays voltage and current of the batteries when you connect MOD-BUS battery chargers. The Be126 monitors the Mains. You can use the Be126 controller in standard diesel engine pump water station by enabling the ‘Engine Protection Mode’.
