Coordinated control of multiple pumps on a water line by
using just one smart drive can deliver many key benefits, including more
dependable water flow, considerable energy savings and the need for fewer
control devices in your plant.
The water dedicated ACQ580 drive with built-in intelligent
multi-pump functionality makes it easy to maintain extremely stable water flows
by linking together up to eight drives that control pumps. The multi-pump function
also reduces the need for an external logic controller.
This drive also makes it possible to coordinate the necessary
speed and number of pumps that come into operation, to meet varying flow and
pressure requirements. The built-in multi-pump functions also provide backup
redundancy, since they automatically ensure continuous operation in water
networks in case one or more pumps should fail or be down for maintenance.
Cost reductions are possible both in terms of the major
energy savings that drives bring to water pumping, as well as reduced capital
costs due to fewer electronic devices needed for controlling your pumps. The
advantages are clear: Better automatic control, for more secure water flow, at
