Variable Speed Controllers

Hydrovar – 5th Generation

Expanded capabilities, easier than ever

Hydrovar is the intelligent pump controller that matches the performance to system demand. The Hydrovar is easily mounted directly on the motor of the pump and will fit on any standard TEFC NEMA motor. This makes the Hydrovar an excellent choice for retrofitting and upgrading of fixed speed systems. There’s no need for an external control panel when using Hydrovar.

EASY TO SETUP AND COMMISSION

Quickly install directly on any TEFC motor without running new power to a wall-mounted control system. The quick start up guide and intuitive menu system makes the Hydrovar easy to set up and operate. Advanced programming features can optimize the Hydrovar for almost any application.

ENERGY SAVINGS POTENTIAL

A motor running at 80% of its maximum speed uses 48% less energy. With energy savings of up to 70% on partial loads alone, the typical investment payback period is less than two years depending on energy costs and pump operating times.

CONTROL OFFERING

  • Multi-pump capability from 1 to 8 pumps
  • Constant pressure
  • Constant flow
  • Via 4-20mA or 0-10 V external signal

SAFETY

  • Embedded THDi filter to reduce harmonic interference
  • Stops the pump at zero flow
  • Integrated soft start/stop: no water hammer and lower starting current
  • Built-in protection
    • Over / under voltage
    • Overcurrent / output short protection
    • Low water level
    • Sensor failure
    • Motor over temperature
    • Inverter over temperature
    • Minimum threshold / conveyor limit
