How to update the firmware in FRC Governors

Monday, August 11th, 2014

This video describes the procedure for updating the firmware in your FRC PumpBoss, InControl, or ThrottleXcel governor. Firmware is the onboard software that makes your device function the way that it does. If there is an update to this software that offers new features, or fixes bugs discovered since release, you can follow this method to update it. Firmware should be obtained only from an authorized FRC service representative.

Insight Ultimate Calibration

Monday, December 16th, 2013

A commonly asked question for our service staff is how to calibrate the Insight Ultimate Flow and Pressure Meter. Calibration of the meter is simple, and is described well in the manual (page 26), but sometimes it helps to actually see how things are done! There is a video available for each of the techniques.

Single Point Calibration
Calibrates the device at the most common flow rate. This is the simplest procedure and should serve well in most cases.

Multi Point Calibration
Calibrates the device at several flow rates. This can help improve accuracy when the flow sensor is installed in a difficult plumbing location.

Setting the date and time on the TurboFoam

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

One of the first things you’ll want to do when testing out your new TurboFoam direct injection foam proportioning system is to set the local date and time. While the time and date is set at the factory, if your truck ends up in a different time zone you should change the time. Note: you can use this video for setting the time on all TurboFoam systems. The TFC100 has no message display and you must substitute MODE for MENU.

Why should I bother doing this?
The TurboFoam stores the last 20 error codes with a timestamp. Having the correct date and time stored in your TurboFoam makes troubleshooting any problems you run into much easier. There is a comprehensive list of trouble codes available in the TurboFoam manual.

TurboFoam Installation Video

Monday, April 1st, 2013

John McLoughlin and Brian Roherich worked to put together this great installation overview for FRC’s new TurboFoam Direct Injection Foam Proportioning System. This video in no way replaces the installation manual, but it does cover the basics of installation. This is not a sales or operations video! You will not learn how to operate the TurboFoam system here. It describes the steps a truck builder needs to perform to install the new foam system. The audience for this video is District engineers and mechanics, OEM engineering staff, and technically minded folk who want to understand the components of the TurboFoam system.
