Eliminates pressure cycling associated with conventional pressure switch controlled water pumping systems.
Artesian Drive® is a line of custom-programmed Variable Speed Drives (VFD) that enhance the performance of standard centrifugal pumps. When applied correctly to 3 Ph motor-driven pumps, the Artesian Drive® eliminates pressure-cycling associated with conventional pressure-switch-controlled water pumping systems and provides a constant output pressure by increasing or decreasing motor speed, based upon demand.Artesian Drive® is factory-programmed for F&W centrifugal pumps to provide optimum performance and motor protection. The Artesian Drive® can be used with other pump brands, provided the pump is powered by a 3 Ph motor that does not exceed the maximum current output rating of the drive.Pre-programmed drives: no need for field technician to program the drive at the siteDrives are available for centrifugal pumps powered by a 3 Ph motorConstant water pressure with a wide range of settings (30-80 PSI)*Pressure is easily adjusted with a 7/32? (5.6 mm) allen wrenchWorks with a small pressure tank or larger tank, already in placeNo in-rush current at start-upSoft start reduces mechanical/electrical stress, prolonging pump and motor lifeBuilt-in protection and diagnostics:Motor overloadLocked or bound pump ? with auto-reversing torqueLow line voltageShort circuitHigh voltage/lightning protectionDry run conditions, using intelligent load monitoringOverheated drive with automatic resetIncluded items:Factory-programmed variable speed drive unitNEMA 1 enclosurePressure sensor, preset at 50 PSISensor adjustment tool10' (3 m) sensor cable
The maximum obtainable system pressure is limited by the performance of the pump installed.
