Control Devices inside and outside the station

Having the bay door automatically open so the truck is ready to leave the instant the crew is on board can significantly improve response times. PrimeAlert® Fire-EMS station control options include automatic activation (and de-activation) of bay doors, gates, traffic lights, gas stove shut-off, and more.

PrimeAlert® Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)

Housed inside the system enclosure as part of the Station Control Panel, this cost-effective off-the-shelf relay PLC automatically opens and closes apparatus bay doors and gates, turns on/off lights, controls traffic signals, turns off gas stoves, activates fans, and monitors station devices including acknowledgement buttons, still alarm controls, test buttons, doorbells, fire alarms, and CO sensors.

Location: Inside of Station Control Panel
