FW Murphy Products
The TTD product is a solid-state fault annunciator and shutdown control system designed to protect engines, compressors and their associated equipment. The TTD model will accept 48 sensor inputs from normally open and/or normally closed sensors. Each of the 48 inputs can be configured for “Shutdown” or “Alarm Only”. Any input can be locked out by one of the two Start-Run timers, or configured as Class C, ESD or Ignore. The annunciator provides for both closing of a fuel valve and grounding of an ignition after a time delay. Incorporated in the TTD non-volatile memory:
•Run Hours/Elapsed Time Meter
•Last 10 Shutdowns with associated run hours
•Last 4 Alarms with associated run hours

The 601 is a self-powered Capacitor Discharge (CD) Ignition System which can be installed on any large flywheel, spark-ignited engine. With electronics engine-mounted in close proximity to the flywheel, the unit is powered by magnetic charging circuitry
The PXT-K Series pressure transmitters are state-of-the-art instruments providing 4-20 mA output. Each Piezoresistive Pressure Transmitter contains a transducer comprised of a piezoresistive silicon chip mounted on a glass-metal feed-through header welded into a stainless steel housing and filled with silicone oil. The very thin laser-welded stainless steel isolation-diaphragm completes the front side. Media pressure is transferred from the stainless steel isolation-diaphragm via the oil inside the cell to the silicon measuring chip. This construction, combined with the advanced internal signal conditioning circuitry, results in a rugged instrument with extremely small temperature error and class-leading EMI/RFI resistance.
The PD8100 Series eliminates pointer flutter on pressure indicating Swichgage® devices which are subject to pulsating pressure from reciprocating pumps or compressors. It also allows a close setting of high and low contact points providing for more accurate pressure indication and control of equipment. The PD8100 Series decreases wear on geared movements and increases the life of pressure indicating instruments by eliminating excessive gage strain and unnecessary movement, a necessity which quickly pays for itself by protecting any pressure indicating and control instrument which is subject to pulsation.
TATTLETALE® annunciators and Magnetic Switches are the nerve centers that translate SWICHGAGE® contact operations into decisions and operate the alarm or shutdown device. They are the electrical load carrying devices for the alarm or shutdown device. TATTLETALE® annunciators indicate which monitored function failed leading to the alarm or shutdown whereas magnetic switches do not. Magnetic switches operate basically as a latching relay.
These fuel shutoff valves are semi-automatic devices for shutdown of natural gas fueled engines. The valve is opened manually and closes when the electromagnet is energized and trips the latch. The valve can be closed manually by turning the valve’s disconnect knob. A normally energized model is available that holds the valve open electrically and closes when the coil is de-energized. A vent in the valve body relieves trapped gas when the valve closes. A pop-out indicator button informs you when the valve is open or closed. The valve’s tripping power is provided by an engine ignition system or battery. Models are available for magneto, CD ignition or 12/24 V battery.
The M2582-P and M5180-P are pneumatically controlled fuel shut-off valves that open and close automatically or semi-automatically. The pneumatic control pressure can be air, oil or gas. A manual lever aids in opening the valve when control pressure is insufficient. A gas escape vent, when properly vented and maintained, releases trapped gas from the valve after shutoff.

Compliance Controls AFR-9R air/fuel ratio controller offers the same simplicity as the AFR-1R model. Non-intrusive installation. Streamlined menu-driven navigation. But with more setpoints, you get even tighter control. The AFR-9R controller offers nine setpoint targets, based on a combination of three RPM settings and three manifold pressure settings. As your engines load conditions change, your AFR-9R continues to make sure it is in the best possible operating range. It also includes manifold pressure and RPM sensing technology. If your site is facing tightening regulations, changes in ambient temperature, big load swings or gas quality/pressure changes, the AFR-9R is the right choice. It’s simple air/fuel ratio control with more flexibility.
The AFR-64R controls rich-burn, natural gas-fueled engines – maximizing the efficiency of a three-way catalyst by maintaining the proper air-fuel ratio over varying engine loads, speeds, fuel quality, ambient temperatures and barometric pressures. And the AFR-64R works without operator intervention. Easy to install, even easier to use, and equipped with a comprehensive 44-fault on-board diagnostics and troubleshooting system, the Windows-based AFR-64R redefines the state-of-the-art – in hardware, microprocessor power, control system software, operator interface options, adaptability to variable engine conditions, software upgradeability, you name it.

The LCDT Selectronic Tattletale system is a compact fault annunciator with an electronic alarm/shutdown control system. It was designed to protect engine-driven or motor-driven compressors and pumps. The annunciator indicates the sensor, and hence the parameter, that causes an alarm or shutdown. In addition, a means is provided for testing the operation of each sensor without initiating an alarm or shutdown. Employing a liquid crystal display, the LCDT system gives a digital reading of the tripped sensor and the lockout timer countdown. As the heart of the system, the basic annunciator component has two variations: the Model LCDT-NO, which accommodates normally open sensors, and the Model LCDT-NC, which accommodates normally closed sensors. These units are enclosed in an aluminum box having a brush finish. The LCDT system accommodates 47 sensor inputs, 15 of which may be locked out during start-up by the start/run timer delay. A separate power supply is provided with the model LCDT instrument. Power may be supplied by CD ignition, a 120 VAC line, or by 12 or 24 VDC battery.
The Series 1501 instrument is a microprocessorbased alarm, shutdown and control system with tachometer/hourmeter function. It annunciates in alphanumeric characters the protective device that has signaled an alarm or caused equipment shutdown. Information is called up and adjustments are made on a six-button keypad on the face of the unit. Configurations such as: Alarm or Shutdown Nomenclature, Preset Timers, and Tachometer Calibration can be made in the field. Murphy’s Series 1501 system has seven SPDT relays. On the standard model, the relays are assigned to the following functions: Lube, Crank, Ignition/Motor, Fuel Valve, Load, Alarm, Shutdown. The complete Series 1501 system consists of a head (monitor), sensor input terminal strip (two needed for 64 sensor models), 36 inch (914 mm) flat ribbon cable(s) for connecting the terminal block to the head/monitor, and a Class I, Div. 1, explosion-proof power supply. The Series 1501 system is powered from 120 VAC or 12 or 24 VDC. The head/monitor is rated intrinsically safe and includes a communication port: RS232 or RS485 (Modbus RTU slave). This port allows for remote control functions such as Start/Stop, Load/Unload, etc., and for access to Series 1501 registers.
