Compressed gas suppressants and HFC-227ea will not stall a diesel engine. If fire breaks out aboard a diesel powered vessel, the engine(s) must be shut down immediately for the Fireboy fire extinguisher system to effectively extinguish the fire. Continued engine operation may remove the agent, lowering the concentration required to effectively extinguish the fire, making an Engine Shutdown System necessary.
These systems automatically shut down engines, generators, blowers, and other connected equipment when a Fireboy system discharges. Select the correct engine shutdown based on system voltage (12V, 24V, 32V) and the total number of circuits to be shut down.
In accordance with Fireboy-Xintex instructions, an Automatic Engine Shutdown system is required on all diesel engine applications with an installed pre-engineered fire suppression system, and highly recommended for all other applications.
ES and ELS systems are wired externally, with open terminal blocks and screw-style connections. ESC systems are wired internally, with no exposed connections, and boast three viewable LEDs to keep you abreast of system status. All systems include USCG-required helm station system operational light, integrated alarm/horn, charged/discharged lights, and an override switch for restart control of auto-shutdown.
ELS Series: Designed for today's electronic engines. The ELS Series of Engine Shutdowns were developed for low current, electronically controlled engines. Featuring sealed relays with gold-plated contacts, the ELS Series is guaranteed to operate in all electronic engine applications. Engine circuit relays feature an operating range of 10µA to 2 amps. Auxiliary relays have an operating range of 100 mA to 10 amps for the shutdown of generators, dampers, louvers, and other types of related engine room equipment. All ELS models are 12/24/32 VDC compatible with a choice of either a round or square display. The display unit comes with an integrated alarm horn, charged / discharged lights and an override switch for restart or control of auto-shutdown. Additional units and wire harnesses are available for a second station.
ESC Series: Featuring an ISO 54 Enclosure, internal terminals, heyco wire connectors, along with a see-thru cover to easy observe circuit board mounted LEDs which indicate circuit board and Fireboy Extinguisher status, or that a fault condition exists. Non-energized relays. A combination of models including 6, 8, and 10 circuits. Select from a combination of relays; 30 amp, (operating range 100mA to 30amp), 10amp, (operating range 100mA to 10 amp) and 2 amp gold plated relays, (operating range 10uA to 2 amps). All ESC models operate on multi-voltage 12/24/32V DC. All models come with a square gray waterproof membrane touch switch featuring multi-colored and dimmable LEDs for the helm station with override function.
ES Series: Available for shutting down up to eight circuits with engine circuit relays featuring an operating range of 100mA to 10 amps. Available in either 12VDC or 24VDC models. The 24V DC models are designed to work on multi-voltage engines and equipment installations. The ES model comes with a choice of either a round or square helm station display.
