Frequently Asked Questions
Q
1. What type of motor starting method should be utilized?
A
The answer is not always clear cut and straightforward. There are a number of factors to consider such as, the motor HP and voltage, is the fire pump operating on emergency power, does the local utility have restrictions on the size of the motor load or the maximum ampere draw? Any questions contact your local FTA representative or the factory.

2. My fire pump is required to operate on emergency power. Do I need an automatic transfer switch with my fire pump controller?
A
Yes and be sure the fire pump transfer switch is provided as an integral unit with the fire pump controller.
