  • I have had the pleasure of working closely with Electro-Motion on my fire pumps and emergency generator. They correct problems on the spot and report on anything which may need to be corrected in the future, keeping equipment in top working order saves us all in emergency repairs and costly down time.

    Dual Starting Systems

    February 19, 2014

    Do you have generators with dual starters & battery sets for redundancy? How many battery chargers are supporting your battery sets? If you answered “one battery charger”, this is your primary risk area.

    If your only battery charger fails, you no longer have the ability to charge all four batteries, and therefore have lost the redundancy that was designed into your starting system. Dual starting systems for generators and fire pumps should have dual battery chargers to ensure the highest level of reliability.

    For life safety systems and mission critical systems, dual battery chargers for 24 volt systems can reduce starting risk when your systems are called upon during a power outage or fire.
