The Davey remote start firefighter is a single impeller pump coupled to a Honda iGX270E petrol engine fitted with an electric start. The pump can be started manually, remotely via SMS or automatically via daily schedules or local wired inputs/sensors.
Emergency start via heat sensor or local emergency button always takes priority over all other operations.
Start options are:
• Heat sensors (Davey optional accessory P/N: 402939)
• Remote switch, e.g. float switch, panic button in house, etc.
• Electric (via key switch) or recoil starter
• SMS start (subject to subscription and reception)
-- Immediate, delayed start/timed run or scheduled
In the event of a heat sensor or local emergency start button
start the pump unit can only be stopped by the following
• Key switch on engine turned to OFF position
• SMS stop signal
• Engine stop due to no fuel remaining or oil alert system
Up to 3 users can be registered to operate and
receive SMS feedback.
All registered users receive SMS feedback and warnings,
• Pump Start and Pump Stop
• Battery Low
• General Status
• Engine Service and SIM Subscription
The SIM in the unit’s control centre is factory fitted and ready to use utilising the Telstra network across Australia. As long as the site has the ability to allow SMS's to be sent and received, the Davey control centre will operate. Ongoing use of the SMS function is subject to reception and subscription status. An annual SIM subscription is required to maintain SMS connection – go to my.daveywater.com to set up an
account and arrange payment.
Davey recommend the addition of heat sensors hard wired in series to buildings which have been fitted with external sprinklers to ensure the pump will start in an emergency independent of the phone network, as during severe fire conditions SMS reception may be compromised. So even though the SMS is the last service to go
down in an emergency, Davey cannot guarantee that even SMS service is not compromised in such an event.
