Sequence of Operation Diesel Engine Fire Pump Controllers FTA1100

ENERGIZING THE CONTROLLER

1. Place MANUAL-OFF-AUTO selector switch in OFF

position

2. Close circuit breaker 1CB to allow single phase AC voltage to the battery chargers.

3. Close circuit breakers 2CB and 3CB to allow battery

DC

voltage to the battery chargers, and all other

DC

voltage components in the controller.

Note : Selector switch in OFF position is an alarm condition, and the Alarm LED will be flashing. Also, the START and STOP pressure set points should be

programmed into the Mark II, and the System should be pressurized at or above the STOP set point. See the Setup and Operating Instructions Manual for details.

4. Selector switch should be placed in AUTO for automatic start on loss of pressure. The Mark II will show system pressure, and battery voltage. Main Switch in Auto LED will be illuminated.

5. The controller is now in standby condition and is ready to start the diesel engine should a start signal be received.

MANUAL START

1. Place MANUAL-OFF-AUTO selector switch in MANUAL position.

a. “Alarm” LED will flash.

b. “Main Switch in Auto” LED will go out.

c. “Engine Oil Pressure Low” LED will illuminate.

d. Engine fuel and water solenoid will energize

through terminal #1, and engine shutdown circuit will de-energize through terminal #12.

2. Press CRANK ON BATTERY #1 and/or CRANK ON BATTERY #2 push-button(s).

a. Engine starter will energize through terminals

#9 or #10 respectively. Note: Hold the crank push-button until engine starts, then release. CAUTION—Engine starting motor may be damaged due to excessive continuous cranking. Limit continuous cranking time to fifteen (15) seconds. Allow at least fifteen (15) seconds rest before attempting to re-crank.

b. “Engine Running” LED will illuminate once the engine is running.

c. “Engine Oil Pressure Low” LED should go out once oil pressure is satisfied.

Note: Engine mounted oil pressure switch must open and de-energize terminal #4 within 15 seconds after the engine is running. If not, the controller mounted audible alarm will sound.

CAUTIONLow Oil Pressure condition outlined above may result in engine damage. IMMEDIATELY place the selector switch in the OFF position. DO NOT RUN ENGINE until problems have been resolved.

3. Engine will keep running until it is shutdown by placing the selector switch in OFF position or the engine over speed switch operates.

AUTO START

CONDITIONS NORMAL

1. Place MANUAL-OFF-AUTO selector switch in AUTO position.

a. “ Main Switch In Auto” LED will illuminate.

2. Push ENGINE TEST push-button on controller inner

panel and hold depressed until engine starts and

runs.

NOTE— Pressing this button energizes the SVR relay (solenoid valve relay), and the solenoid drain valve on controller, bleeding pressure from the pressure transducer causing engine controller to automatically start the engine.

3. Release TEST push-button after engine starts. Cranking will cease.

a. “Engine Running” LED will illuminate, the SVR relay (solenoid valve relay) will de-energize, and the solenoid valve will be de-energized, satisfying

system pressure.

b. If Mark II is programmed for Automatic Start, and Manual Stop Only, the controller will stop only if pressure is restored at or above the STOP set point. The main selector switch can be turned to the OFF position, or the STOP RESET BATTERY TROUBLE push button can be depressed. If all requirements are normal, the engine will shutdown.

c. If Mark II is programmed for Automatic Start and Automatic Stop, the controller will automatically stop the engine after the minimum run period expires and all conditions are returned to normal.

4. Signals for Auto-Start are as follows:

a. System pressure drops to Start set point .

b. Remote Start contact closes.

c. Deluge valve contact opens.

d. Weekly test automatically performed or ENGINE

TEST push-button depressed.

5. Occurrence of any of the call to start conditions energize:

a. Fuel and water solenoids through terminal #1 and de-energizes the engine shutdown circuit through terminal #12. NOTE: Either terminal #1, or terminal #12 is used, depending on engine make.

b. Engine cranking circuits through terminals #9 or #10.

c. Minimum run period timer (for auto shutdown only). Minimum run time is a function of the Mark II.

6. Cranking circuit operates as follows:

a. Mark II crank limit timer starts 165 second time

cycle to limit total cranking duration time.

b. Timer sets 15 seconds crank period.

c. Timer sets 15 seconds rest period between cranks.

d. Cranking alternates between battery—1 and battery—2. Three 15 second cranks per battery.

NOTE—In the event that a battery is inoperative, the respective battery will be shown on the Mark II display as “Battery Trouble”. This will prevent the battery alternating crank cycle from operating and will lock the cranking circuit onto the remaining battery.

e. If the engine does not start within the 165 second

time, the timer will expire in the Mark II and energize the engine trouble alarm relay, ETR, de-energize the cranking circuits, sound the audible alarm, and “ Engine Fail To Start “ LED will illuminate. Placing the selector switch in the OFF position will reset the control circuits. CHECK THE ENGINE STARTING EQUIPMENT AND FUEL SYSTEM.

7. When engine reaches running speed, the engine mounted speed switch will close to terminal #2, engine running relay ERR will energize, and the oil

pressure timer in Mark II. “Engine Running” LED will illuminate.

a. Remote engine running alarm contacts are activated.

b. Energizing ERR inhibits the crank output circuit in Mark II.

8. Engine oil pressure should increase, opening the engine mounted low oil pressure switch.

9. If the oil pressure fails to increase, the oil pressure timer will time out (15 seconds), sound the audible alarm, and energize relay ETR to activate the remote engine trouble alarms. The controller does not shutdown the engine on low oil pressure unless the start was initiated by a test condition (Weekly Test or Engine Test push-button).

CAUTION—An engine running with a low oil pressure condition may be damaged. If operation of the engine is not essential at this time, it should be shutdown by placing the selector switch in the OFF position. All possible causes of low oil pressure should be investigated and corrected immediately so that system can be returned to normal operation.

10. Whenever the controller selector switch is in the MANUAL OR AUTO position, the engine water temperature is monitored through the temperature switch on the engine. Closure of this contact through terminal #5, will signal Mark II to energize the audible alarm, relay ETR and activate the remote engine trouble alarm. This will not stop the engine, nor will it prevent the engine from starting. Note: A test condition will stop the engine.

CAUTION—An engine running with a high temperature condition may cause engine damage. Causes of high temperature should be investigated and corrected immediately.

11. An engine overspeed condition will immediately shutdown the engine and lock it out until the overspeed switch on the engine has been reset. (Overspeed is normally set at 120% rated RPM.) The overspeed switch on the engine will operate to close the engine fuel valve and energize controller relay OSR. “Engine Overspeed” LED will illuminate, the audible alarm will energize, relay ETR will energize and activate the remote engine trouble alarm. Relay ERR will de-energize, deactivating the remote engine running alarm signals. The engine overspeed switch must be reset manually before the engine can be restarted. The audible alarm on the controller and the remote engine trouble alarm may be silenced by placing the controller switch in the OFF position. If the control switch is placed in the AUTO or MANUAL position before the engine overspeed switch has been reset, the audible alarm on the controller and the remote alarm will be reactivated. NOTE: The engine is solely responsible for engine shutdown in overspeed.

12. Weekly test timerOperation of weekly test timer, will energize the solenoid drain valve on the controller to take the transducer to atmosphere, initiating an automatic run sequence. The engine will run until the weekly test timer resets (minimum 30 minutes)

run until the weekly test timer resets (minimum 30 minutes) and all other demand signals have

and all other demand signals have been satisfied. If the engine continues to run, it indicates that some other demand still exists.

13. An engine start by weekly test timer, or Engine

test push-button, is considered a nonessential start. Safety engine shutdown circuits for the following conditions are included in this controller:

a. Engine overspeed.

b. Engine low oil pressure.

c. Engine high temperature.

14. Shutdown by engine overspeed requires manual reset of the engine overspeed switch.

15. Shutdown by low oil pressure and high temperature would be voided by any other demand for engine run operation.

16. Interlock shutdown—Closing of the interlock contacts will disable all automatic starting and automatic running functions but will not affect manual start or manually started running functions.

SHUTDOWN—OTHER THAN CATERPILLAR ENGINES Shutdown normally occurs when pressure is restored at the transducer and the minimum run time expires. Mark II performs the functions of a holding circuit to allow the timing of the crank circuit and also of energizing wire 1 (terminal #1) on the engine, energizing the fuel solenoid. When all start conditions are met, the fuel solenoid de- energizes, stopping the engine.

The above sequence requires that Mark II be programmed for automatic shutdown (minimum run time). If programmed for Manual Stop Only, the engine must be stopped manually.

SHUTDOWN—CATERPILLAR ENGINES Caterpillar engines require that the fuel solenoid be energized to shutdown. (Main selector switch, MANUAL- OFF-AUTO must be in OFF or AUTO). This allows wire 12 (terminal #12) to become energized, and the shutdown circuit on the engine to become energized. These conditions allow the engine fuel solenoid to energize to stop the engine if Mark II is programmed for Automatic Stop.

OVERSPEED—SHUTDOWN Engine overspeed is a shutdown condition and is detected by contacts mounted on the engine which signal through terminal #3. OSR1 will energize, “Engine Overspeed” LED will illuminate. Mark II prevents any call to start, disabling the weekly test circuit and the manual Engine test circuit. Terminal #1 remains energized to supply voltage to overspeed circuits on the engine.

The Caterpillar engine requires energizing the fuel solenoid to stop. In an overspeed condition, wire 12, terminal #12, will be energized, stopping the engine.

Overspeed disables the crank cycle, prevents all calls to start, disables the weekly test circuit and the manual test circuit.

cycle, prevents all calls to start, disables the weekly test circuit and the manual test circuit.
