Seneca Falls, NY - Model PS 200 is a microprocessor-based variable speed drive, programmed specifically for centrifugal pumps up to 700 hp. The drive is said to be designed for both simplicity and functionality, making it ideal for applications where previously process controllers were too costly or complex. Accurate control of virtually any process parameter is obtained by the continuous monitoring and reaction to both pump conditions and system demands. Pump output is matched to the exact flow and head required by the process. Energy savings in the 30-70% range are obtained because at lower demands, the PS 200 reduces the motor speed, eliminating the extra energy that is used to overcome the pressure drop of control valves. The system enables control of 2 to 4 pump systems with the need for separate PLCs and custom programming.
