Fire Suppression for Motor Control Centers

The Next Generation of Fire Protection

Talk To An Expert

A motor control center or room is an assembly to control some or all electric motors in a central location. It consists of multiple enclosed sections having a common power bus and with each section containing a combination starter, which in turn consists of a motor starter, fuses or a circuit breaker, and power disconnect. A motor control center can also include push buttons, indicator lights, variable-frequency drives, programmable logic controllers, and metering equipment.

The Fire Risk

The fire risk of a motor control room at land would be based on what motors are being controlled within those rooms. If a motor control room was controlling and powering a fire pump, then its loss would represent a general loss of fire protection to the facility being served by the fire pump. The probability of this event would be relatively low because an initial fire would have to develop in either the control room or the building. In other words, there would be a need for general fire protection that is affected by the fire pump, and the motor control room would simultaneously be on fire. If both of these events happened, major property damages and possible fatalities and injuries would result.

For these reasons, the motor control should be protected with fire suppression.
