Its unique actuator and the operation of the shutdown relay. The allows actuation of a pneumatically-actuated first time delay is programmable for 5, 10, 20, fire suppression system either manually or 30 seconds. The second time delay is field or automatically. programmed to assign the time between the completion of the first time delay (when the The CHECKFIRE SC-N system is typically used shutdown relay operates) and operation of the with an Ansul A-101 Vehicle Fire Suppression release circuit. The second time delay is field system for 24-hour protection of equipment. programmable for 0, 10, 20, or 30 seconds. The system is particularly suited for protection of equipment that is subjected to extreme Second Initiating Circuit environmental and physical conditions such The second initiating circuit is field programmable as vehicles used in forestry, mining, agriculture, to be used as either an electric manual pull or construction, public transportation, public a pressure switch feedback circuit.
