Electric motors take power from a utility connection or other approval power source. The Electric motor driven pump sets are known for their ease, use, limited number of additional items required for their operation and their cost efficiencies.


Both the motor and the controller must be listed for use in fire pump service. The motor is designed to run into failure and to operate under full load conditions.


NFPA 70®, National Electrical Code ®, Outlines the requirements for motor wiring and equipment.


As with all fire protection equipment, the functionality of the fire pump system is only as good as the performance of the periodic maintenance and inspection programs.


Refer to chapter 8 of NFPA 25, standard for the inspection, testing, and maintenance of water-based fire protection system, and the original equipment manufacturers (OEM) manuals, instructions, and requirements for the full requirements for periodic care and maintenance schedules.
