Variable Frequency Drives (VFD’s)
The Yaskawa iQpump1000
The Yaskawa iQpump1000 was designed with pump service operators and pump system owners in mind. iQpump1000 offers ease of setup and comprehensive pump and motor protection features.
The integrated pump specific software and set up parameters allow the operator to program control values for a wide range of applications. The iQpump1000 will automatically adjust pump operating conditions, as the process variables change while still Maintaining optimum pump performance and protection.
The iQpump1000 Offers:
- Loss of Prime / Dry Run Protection
Loss of prime protection is a feature to protect the pump and motor from damage that would be caused if the pump were operated without water. If a pump were to lose prime and continue to operate without water moving through the pump, the pump would develop heat, which would eventually damage the pump seal, motor, pipe manifold and related components.
- Sleep Mode Minimum Flow
Protects and shuts down the pump at low speeds or in low flow conditions.
- Pre-Charge Control (Controlled Pipe Fill)
This programmable feature eliminates water hammer and extends system life by gradually filling a pipeline before normal full pressure and flow operation. Pump motor speed can be controlled with a system timer, level or pressure control device to indicate when normal operation may begin.
Homeowners with water pressure problems experience weak showers, unclean dishes, dry lawns and more. The Pentek Intellidrive™ Water Pressure Control Center is an “Intelligent Variable Frequency Drive” that directs changes in submersible pump motor speed, responding to fluctuations in household demand. It maintains constant water pressure, regardless of how many people or appliances are using water at the same time. Learn more here.
