L.P.C. DIESEL ENGINE CONTROLLER


GENERAL AND OPERATIONAL DESCRIPTION. Diesel engine controllers are designed fully in accordance with the L.P.C. regulations (BS 5306 Part 2) including all current amendments & are available in two versions for use with 12 volt or 24 volt starting systems. Adjustable tappings are provided on the battery charger transformers enabling the controller to be used on 220 volt or 240 volt 50 or 60 cycle mains supply. Engine instrumentation is also incorporated within the controller, thereby rendering separately mounted engine gauge panels unnecessary. Facia mounted equipment also incorporates status indicator lights, auto start battery selector switch, test manual start pushbutton, break glass emergency start pushbutton & battery charger ammeters.

Operation ;Either battery may be selected to provide power for the automatic mode by means of a selector switch, which also incorporates an off position to inhibit automatic control during commissioning. When the switch is in the off position, audible & visual warning is given locally & contacts are provided for remote indication. On falling pressure, the pressure switch contact will open, thereby releasing relay R1 & initiating the auto start circuit. As the start circuit is a closed loop system, any break in the wiring will release R1 to initiate automatic start, likewise any earth faults on the wiring will cause MCB2 to operate, releasing relay R1 & again initiate an automatic start. Timer T1 controls the length of the crank period & is factory set to 15 seconds. T2 controls the length of the dwell period & is factory set to 10 seconds. T3 is the overall control & is set to allow 6 starting attempts. If battery A has been selected for automatic control, then relay R6 will energise the starting solenoid to crank the engine from battery A. If battery B has been selected for automatic control, then relay R7 will energise the other starting solenoid to crank the engine from battery B. Engine cranking is detected by the speed module which is connected to the engine mounted tacho mini-generator or magnetic pick up. At cranking speed, an amber L.E.D. designed 1st stage is illuminated. Should the starter motor fail to engage after a timed period, a red L.E.D. designated not engaged will illuminate. At this point, the starter motor will release & then re-energise. This process is repeated until the starter motor fully energises. Should the battery selected for automatic control fail during the cranking sequence, all further cranking attempts will automatically be made from the opposite battery. When the engine fires and attains running speed, a green L.E.D. mounted on the speed module, designated 2 nd stage illuminates & a contact on the speed module energises relay R2, hours run indicator, pump running lamp indicator & the audible warning device. The engine will now continue to run until the starting pressure switch has been

reset & the fuel cut-off lever operated. This operation causes the test manual start light to illuminate & also the test manual start pushbutton to become operative & audible alarm to sound. Operating the test manual start pushbutton will then start the engine from the other battery, than the one which is selected for automatic control. Once started, the engine will again continue to run until shutdown manually, this then restores the controller to full standby condition. Should the controller be left in a condition with the test manual start light illuminated, this in no way inhibits the automatic starting should a fall in pressure be detected. A break glass emergency start pushbutton is fitted to the front of the controller, which, when operated, completely bypasses all automatic controls & energises both starter solenoids simultaneously. Instrumentation includes battery charger ammeters, tachometer & hours run indicator. 3 green indicating lights, illuminated under normal conditions are incorporated for A.C. supply, starting system A healthy & starting system B healthy. 4 amber indicating lights, illuminated under operating conditions, are incorporated for pump on demand, pump running. Low oil pressure & high water temperature. 2 red indicating lights, illuminated under fault conditions are incorporated for engine failed to start & auto start inhibited. These conditions also initiate a local audible alarm. Volt free normally closed contacts are provided for connecting to a North West Switchgear remote alarm panel giving the following signals, pump on demand, pump running and fault on controller. BATTERY CHARGERS. Dual independent battery chargers are incorporated which are factory set, to suit nickel cadmium batteries. These chargers incorporate automatic boost/float charge controls in accordance with voltage limits defined by L.P.C. Regulations. Settings. All settings required are factory set and sealed and should not require any further adjustment.

Points to watch
Minimum fuse or MCB rating feeding the controller 16 Amp. Is battery polarity correct ? If battery healthy lights are not illuminated, turn controller to Off and then back to either A or B

L. P. C. (EN) ELECTRIC FIRE PUMP CONTROLLER.


GENERAL AND OPERATIONAL DESCRIPTION. L.P.C. Direct on Line and Star/Delta Fire Pump Controllers are designed fully in accordance with the L.P.C. Rules for Automatic Sprinkler Installations, Incorporating BSEN 12845, including all current amendments and are available in various frame sizes to suit particular applications. It should also be noted that the controllers also continue to meet the requirements of BS 5306 Part 2, which is due to be withdrawn in 2006. With power available & the isolator closed; relays R1 and R2 are energised which monitor phases L1 & L2. A contact on this relay energises relay R3 which monitors phase L3 & neutral. In the event of a supply problem, or failure of a motor fuse, one or more of these relays will de-energise to prevent the pump starting & also signal A.C. phase failure to the remote alarm panel. Under normal operating conditions, relays R1, R2, R3 and R4 are energised & both green supply healthy indicators are illuminated. Relay R5 is the Running relay and is only energised when the pump is running. This condition is indicated locally and also transmitted to the remote alarm panel. Relay R6 is the Start Failure relay and is energised in the event of the pump failing to establish a discharge pressure by the time the controller changes into Delta. In the case of Direct on Line controllers, Relay R5 is replaced by a timing relay. On fall in system pressure the starting pressure switch will open, releasing start relay R4 which illuminates the On Demand indicating light, allows the motor starting contactors to energise, and also signal Pump on demand to the remote alarm panel. In the case of direct on line controllers this is a single line contactor, but in the case of star/delta controllers the following sequence occurs. The Star contactor & accelerating period timer are energised simultaneously. A contact on the Star contactor energises the Line contactor, illuminates the Pump Running indicating light & allows the motor to run in Star connection. After the time set on the accelerating period timer has elapsed the Star contactor is released, and after a further inbuilt pause of 50 m sec. the Delta contactor is energised to allow the motor to run in Delta connection. The motor will now continue to run until shut-down by pressing the stop pushbutton on the controller. It should be noted that if the pressure switch is still calling for the pump to run the motor will re-start as the stop pushbutton is released. As the starting circuit is designed on a fail safe basis, should the wiring to the pressure switch be damaged i.e. open circuit, R4 will be released & the motor start. Similarly, should an earth fault occur on the pressure switch or associated wiring, fuse CF4 will blow thereby releasing relay R4 & again start the pump. A break glass emergency start pushbutton is fitted to enable the pump to be started manually if required. Settings. The only setting required is the accelerating period on the star/delta timer. Generally this is in the order of 6 secs. But larger motors may require a slightly longer accelerating period. Points to Watch Is the pump rotation correct. ? If not interchange two pairs of the motor connections. i.e. Interchange W1 with W2 and V1 with V2. Are the Motor Fuses correct for the particular motor ? ( See separate fuse chart ) If the motor wont stop when the stop button is pressed check fuse CF4
