SAM is an integrated total water control system that manages your truck’s pump, tank, intakes and discharges. The SAM system replaces your pressure governor and takes care of opening and closing valves based on operator settings. Instead of a complex fire truck pump panel, you can have all your pump controls in a 10″ touch-screen display. SAM makes complex fire pump operations simple.
