Each pump should have a separate control pressure switch. The pressure switch is located inside the control panel and is protected against water hammers, whereas its lower and upper values can be adjusted separately and independently and it can be locked after the adjustment.
Pump control is done with a fully automatic (automatic start- automatic stop) or with a semi-automatic (automatic start- manual stop) pressure regulated system.
Fire pump panels are equipped with an audible or an illuminated alarm device. These alarm devices rings, when the main pumps start to operate or when any malfunction occurs in order to alert the personnel.
There is a test program on the fire pump panels. It can be adjusted in order to activate the pumps at the desired periods to control the system.
