What is a Fire Pump Controller?

A fire suppression system consists of a sprinkler system, a pump to supply water to the sprinkler heads, an electric motor or diesel engine and a fire pump controller. When there is a fire, there needs to be a continuous flow of water to the sprinkler heads to extinguish the fire. In some cases, when the city water pressure is not sufficient a fire pump is used to provide the necessary water pressure. The fire pump controller monitors the pressure and runs the system in the event of a fire. It provides a means to start an electric motor or diesel engine, which in turn starts the fire pump.
