Designed and manufactured by Coda Octopus Martech and branded as the Grundfos FireSAFE, the new compact fire pump for sprinkler applications is used in domestic and residential properties. A crucial component of the system is the FireSAFE controller, which automates pump testing on a periodic basis. The FireSAFE controller ensures ongoing fully functioning operation of the fire safety system, and alerts in the event that a fault develops. It’s vital that protection of the FireSAFE controller is guaranteed with an industrial enclosure. Coda Octopus Martech selected Spelsberg to provide the controller’s enclosure as a result of construction quality and the in-house design and customisation capability provided by Spelsberg’s UK team. The Coda Octopus Martech FireSAFE controller includes a membrane keypad-overlay on the lid of the enclosure with a flexi-PCB ribbon cable that passes through the enclosure lid on to a PCB mounted inside the lid. For the enclosure to achieve both cable alignment and optimum protection, a customised design specification with highly accurate machining is required to machine minimal diameter cable entry/exit points. Minimising system footprint and providing structural protection and durability are also crucial demands. Spelsberg delivered the requirements through precision customisation of its premium GEOS enclosure.
