Energy-efficient pump control with Optidrive ECO-0

Frequency converters Optidrive Eco are equipped with modern Optiflow technology, which is developed for pump control systems. Optiflow technology makes it much faster and easier to control, adjust and repair pumps. Can be used in systems with 1 to 5 pumps with closed pressure or flow feedback. Optidrive Eco is an easy-to-configure frequency converter that can provide the necessary system operation even without the use of an external controller.

For "Cascade mode" control, it is necessary to connect a pressure sensor to the frequency converter, which will measure the pressure in the required place. The system uses only the necessary amount of pumps to provide pressure within a specified range. The frequency converter automatically adapts to the system - when the water flow increases, the pumps automatically turn on, and when the water flow decreases, they turn off.

The system is flexible and protected (including dry operation). In any of the situations where drive shutdown is required, the system will automatically reconfigure and continue to operate with the remaining available pumps, even if the leading Master frequency converter is de-energized, the system will continue to operate only with slave drives.
