The E-Drive is a sophisticated inverter-drive controller. It can be connected to virtually any pump on the market, and is designed to maintain a set constant characteristic (pressure or flow). In this way the pump is operated only as and when needed without wasting energy, and thus extending its life. The E-Drive has a number of important features: it uses a soft start and soft stop to increase pump life and reduce absorption peaks, provides information on current consumption and power supply voltage, records operating hours and alarms, and provides dry-run protection. Two or more units can be linked together for controlling multiple pumps.
The unit can either be mounted directly to the pump motor to use the motors’ fan to cool the E-Drive, or it can be remotely wall-mounted using a special bracket incorporating a cooling fan. The aluminium body gives the E-drive extreme strength and easy cooling.
The IP55 degree of protection makes it possible to install the E-drive in wet and dusty environments. The LCD display with backlight facilitates its use in dark areas, whilst an acoustic signal provides an immediate alarm warning.
