TFT ATEX RC Monitors are electrically operated with high flow and low friction loss characteristics. Designed for 12 VDC or 24 VDC operation, selection is automatic. Horizontal and elevation stream positions are controlled by strong DC motors and a factory installed control panel mounted on the monitor. Position encoders and current limiting are used to protect the drive train at the ends of travel. Field changeable stops for horizontal rotation and elevation are included. Available with various inlets and outlets. TFT’s ERP nozzle plugs into the factory installed nozzle power wire. Electric drives and control box are waterproof, meeting requirements for an IP65 rating. Main waterway made from hard coat anodized ANSI 356-T6 aluminum with red powder coat finish inside and out. TFT ATEX RC Monitors are designed, tested and approved for use in Classified Hazardous Locations as defined by European Directive 94/9/EC, commonly referred to as the ATEX Directive. Further classification identifies that Zone 2, Category 3 environments are suitable locations for this equipment. It is important to note that only the RC Monitor and Nozzle are certified for installation in the hazardous area. TFT RC Monitor Operator Stations may be used to control monitor functions, but must be installed outside of the hazardous area according to application requirements. It is the responsibility of the facility design engineer to determine suitable location and connection of components for use in the hazardous environment based on electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, and hazardous location classification requirements. TFT ATEX RC Monitors are shipped for use with wired controls/operator stations. For 2.4 GHz wireless control, please consult factory for ordering details. Rated up to 500 gpm, the Tornado OSC is a truck-mounted or fixed installation monitor. The monitor outlet shall have a user adjustable sweep pattern of 20°, 30°, or 40° automatic oscillating sweep pattern with manual override. The oscillating outlet component can be rotated to allow side to side, up and down, or any angle in between. An internal water-driven turbine shall power the oscillation without discharging water to the ground below the unit. The handwheels shall provide elevation control from 90° above horizontal to 45° below horizontal, and a full 360° continuous horizontal rotation. User installed travel limit stops shall be included. The monitor shall be constructed of hard coat anodized aluminum alloy and shall have a red powder coat finish inside and out. Various flange inlets shall be available (specify). Unit shall have serial number and a 5-year warranty.
