Alarms & Gauges
NFPA20 2016 (11.2.5) requires diesel fire pump engine instrument panels to have at least a tachometer for indicating engine speed, an oil pressure gauge, coolant temperature gauge, and hour meter for recording engine run time. Clarke’s standard mechanical and electronic engine instrument panels comply with this standard. In addition, in compliance with UL1242 and FM1333, Clarke engines are designed to provide an alarm signal for high coolant temperature, low oil pressure, ECM warning and ECM Failure, raw water temperature alarm, and low flow conditions in the engine cooling loop.
*Please note: Clarke fire pump engines will only send an alarm signal to the controller and not shut-down for any alarm condition, except Overspeed, to help protect the pump/engine assembly.
