contains the push buttons and potentiometers
necessary to set alarm points for low loop and low
riser pressure circuits and to set full scale on both
firemain panel pressure meters. It also has fuses
for loop and riser pressure transducer circuits.
The LP alarm points for loop and riser
circuits are set by depressing the PUSH TO
SET ALARM POINT push button and LOW
PRESSURE/METER push button at the same
time for a particular point. The LOOP AND
RISER PRESSURE meter reads the alarm set
point. By adjusting the associated ADJUST
potentiometer on the calibration panel, you
can set the alarm point to the desired value.
Releasing the two push buttons returns the
