The SJE Oil Spotter™ Auto control and alarm system is designed to monitor and control oil/water environments and provides a convenient location for all wiring required for an indoor simplex pump application.

The SJE Oil Spotter™ Auto panel employs a terminal block for one 120 VAC pump, a 120 VAC oil containment valve and a 120 VAC water drain valve. Another terminal block is for wiring the SJE Oil Spotter™ Auto probe, high water alarm float, and auxiliary alarm connection. The panel includes an Auto/Hand pump switch and Water/Drain selection switch (functions in hand mode only).

In normal operation, the pump will turn on and off as the water level activates the probes (5 inch pump range). If the water level rises enough to activate the high water probe, a red indicator will illuminate and activate the auxiliary contacts. If the oil level reaches the high oil float, a red indicator will illuminate and activate the auxiliary contacts, the pump energizes along with the valves to automatically remove contaminated water/oil into the appropriate holding vessel.

In Hand operation (spring loaded) the operator can manually pump out the water/oil from the pit. The valve selection allows the operator to choose if the valves are activated or not.

The SJE Oil Spotter™ Auto control and alarm system helps satisfy the requirements of an ASME A17.1 compliant system. Common applications include elevator sump basins, transformer vaults, leachate well applications or garages.
