NEC updates require Fire Pump Controllers to be protected by SPD's. Use High Quality High Performance Fire Pump Controller Surge ProtectorsController Surge Protectors

Recent NEC updates require fire pump controllers to be protected with surge protective devices. This life-safety equipment is composed of intricate electronics that are susceptible to disruptions and damage caused by transient voltage.

Fire pumps are critical pieces of equipment within a fire sprinkler system. The devices are an integral part of supplying water pressure to the sprinkler system and assuring it’s proper and effective function.

Pumps can be powered via electric motors, diesel engines and occasionally steam turbines. Backup generators and transfer switches may also be part of the system where electric motors are used.

The purpose of this critical equipment is to maintain water pressure within the emergency sprinkler system of the building or structure it services.

Building or structure designs largely determine the requirement and implementation of fire pumps. Because of their size, large buildings and tall structures typically require the addition of these devices.

Changes to the National Electrical Code in 2017 added Surge Protection requirements to protect Fire Pump Controllers. Click NEC Surge Protection Updates to view.

Fire Pump Controllers

Controllers are the sensitive electronics of a pump system. The controllers are contained inside of panels/cabinets. In general, these panel designs provide:

  • Motor Starts
  • Motor Control - VFD
  • Pressure Monitoring
  • Alarm System Monitoring
  • Alarm System Response

These are critical functions that make the pump and sprinkler system operate effectively and consistently. These sensitive controls need SPDs that protect against multiple surge types.

Various types of pump applications for Controllers can include:

Industry Leading High Quality, High Performance 25 Year Surge Protector Warranty
  • Diesel Engine
  • Automatic Transfer Switch
  • Electric
  • Additive/Foam
  • Medium Voltage
  • Jockey
  • Residential

For additional information on controllers, view this short UL article.

These panels and cabinets need to be protected with high quality, high performance surge protectors that mitigate both Impulse and RingWave surges. SPDs that protect against both deliver Full Spectrum Protection.
