When a fire strikes, seconds count

The Elkhart Brass advanced electronic controls provide prompt and dependable control of potential crisis situations. That's just one reason why many of the biggest names in industry protect their physical investments with Elkhart's electronic remote controlled monitor systems (ERCMs). They also know that Elkhart has the experience and capabilities to do the entire job right - right from the start and all the way through final installation and service.


Benefits of Elkhart Brass

Leveraging Elkhart Brass’ know-how in the industrial system arena gives you a hassle-free experience. Elkhart Brass brings all project aspects, from design to manufacturing through programming and support, “under one roof” — assuring your project will:

  • Maintain project integrity through consistent management
  • Achieve more focused cost control
  • Realize on-time delivery and installation

Elkhart Brass utilizes proven modular components — including products certified by CE, U.L. listed, and/or FM approved — to build systems tailored to your specific requirements. The Elkhart Brass solution guarantees you receive:

  • Maximum performance
  • Maximum reliability
  • Minimized costs

With Elkhart Brass systems, the instant the system is needed for fire protection or actual firefighting, the “hardware” (monitors, nozzles, valves, etc.) can be activated from a remote location where the operator can: turn on the water supply, direct monitors vertically or horizontally, and change the stream pattern of the nozzle — all from a safe distance. Some standard safety options include:

  • An option that allows the monitor to oscillate automatically, freeing the operator to tend other duties
  • An option for one or more pre-set automatic oscillation arcs for coverage of highest risk areas
  • The option of a secondary control station at another remote location (several monitors can be operated from one control station)

Benefits of Electric Monitors


Electronic monitors offer more control options while maintaining a similar price point to hydraulic monitors. Additionally, with electronic monitors, the controls themselves are fully integrated into the system. Some of the highlights of an electric monitor system include:

  • Less costly to install than hydraulic or water-powered monitors
  • Less maintenance than hydraulic or water-powered monitors through the use of industrial hardened electronics
    • IP68 industrial, over-molded, quick-connect motor cables are fast, error-free, and rugged
  • Less complicated interface to modern operator controls

Benefits of Network Communications

Network communications are adaptable to changing needs while being cost-effective.

  • Due to the cable type/size/conduit, cost savings in the installation phase
  • Allows advanced two-way communications
  • As needs change, the system easily accommodates expansion
  • Easier to build-in safety redundancy and reliability through back-up communications
