New Videos - Franklin Features SubDrive Utility, Solar Advancements, & MagForce
Listen to Franklin Electric’s own product expert, Jeff Frank, discuss three new innovations and advancements that bring value to customers while at Groundwater Week 2017. They include:
- SubDrive Utility™ – The SubDrive Utility Variable Frequency Drive converts 2-wire conventional submersible pumping systems, ranging from 1/3 hp up to 1-1/2 hp, into constant water pressure systems. Designed with a compact footprint, it features a sleek NEMA 3R enclosure rated for both indoor and outdoor use, and retrofits to most pumping systems utilizing a Franklin Electric motor. Separate of the pump and motor, the drive makes troubleshooting and maintenance of the pumping system significantly easier compared to all-in-one units.
- Solar Advancements – Franklin Electric continues to develop our solar product line, including these three specific advancements: a new backup power source, new Helical Rotor pump style, and a WiFi module to better capture data.
- MagForce™ Permanent Magnet Motor – This 6-inch high-performance alternative to standard induction motors provides electrical cost savings via an efficiency improvement of 10-12 percent and a typical investment payback of less than one year in long- or continuous-run applications*.
