Draft Scope/Description:

This International Standard applies to controllers intended for starting, controlling and stopping stationary fire pumps, including automatic and non-automatic types for  alternating current electric motor or diesel engine-driven fire pumps. It is anticipated that  a controller only controls a single driver. 

Controllers for electric motor-driven fire pumps always include suitable short-circuit  protection as an integral part of the controller. These controllers may include an integral  power transfer switch. These controllers are rated 1 000 V a.c. maximum. 

Controllers for diesel engine-driven fire pumps include electrical circuits that operate  various control and supervisory functions, such as remote control (starting), alarms,  signals, indicators, and the proper operation of battery chargers. 

The most significant purpose of this standard is to characterize the unique features of fire pump controllers. A further purpose is to prescribe a procedure for exercising the controllers to verify that the unique features are operative. For the purpose of this standard, this procedure is described as the “fire pump controller test protocol”.
