Features and Benefits:

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 site
Drives are available for centrifugal pumps powered by a 3 Ph motor
Constant water pressure with a wide range of settings (30-80 PSI)*
Pressure is easily adjusted with a 7/32 (5.6 mm) allen wrench
Works with a small pressure tank or larger tank, already in place
No in-rush current at start-up
Soft start reduces mechanical/electrical stress, prolonging pump and motor life
Built-in protection and diagnostics:
Motor overload
Locked or bound pump with auto-reversing torque
Low line voltage
Short circuit
High voltage/lightning protection
Dry run conditions, using intelligent load monitoring
Overheated drive with automatic reset
Included items:
Factory-programmed variable speed drive unit
NEMA 1 enclosure
Pressure sensor, preset at 50 PSI
Sensor adjustment tool
10' (3 m) sensor cable


The maximum obtainable system pressure is limited by the performance of the pump installed.
