  • Integrated Tru-power™ electronic motor and pump protection

    • Eliminates need for costly pump protection relays
    • Dry pump detection using power (nuisance trip-free); time-based automatic restart and well recovery mode
    • Features a wide-range, adjustable, class 5-30 electronic overload
    • Provides superior motor protection from the following conditions:
    • Over/under power (dry-run)
    • Over/under voltage protection
    • Voltage phase loss
    • Voltage and current phase unbalance
    • Stalled/locked rotor
    • Cycle fault
    • Ground fault (UL 1053 certified)
    • Voltage phase reversal

    Built-in power monitoring and fault logging for easy troubleshooting

    • View voltage, current, power factor, and more through an intuitive display
    • Quickly identify common power problems such as phase imbalance, voltage drop, and over/undercurrent conditions to ensure proper pump operation
    • Built-in fault log, counter and parameter change log: records last 15 fault types with power condition values, stores how many times each fault type has occurred (up to 255 count), and logs changes to parameter settings (e.g. FLA, OV/UV, under power)

    Easy to setup and use

    • Inside, the display shows an easy to use menu for setting a wealth of parameters. Adjust any protective or control setting in seconds. For example, choose how long to allow for dry well recovery, set run time periods, and On/Off delays. All this with just a few intuitive keystrokes. The IPS ships with factory default settings pre-programmed for optimal submersible pump protection.

    Industrial grade construction

    • Door mounted heavy-duty HOA switch
    • Housed in an outdoor rated, gasketed, NEMA 3R enclosure
    • Multi-tap control power transformer with integrated secondary protection accommodates common motor voltages. No fuses required!
    • Includes 120 VAC control power for field devices
    • NEMA/IEC rated magnetic contactors feature 2.5 million electrical cycles at full rated current

    Advanced programmable pump control

    • Automatic fault reset
    • Backspin delay - Prevents start-up while system is draining
    • On and Off delay settings
    • Well recovery mode (up to 48 hours)
    • Minimum run time based on last input
    • 12-120 V input for remote start/stop
    • Dry contact input for remote start/stop

    Standard circuit breaker disconnect (Service Entrance rated)

    • UL 489 circuit breaker provides branch and short circuit protection
    • No fuses required – saves time and money
    • Lockable handle for safety

    Optional Ethernet card provides time-stamped data logging, ending utility power disputes

    • Download and display up to 100 faults and alarms, including operational mode and values of operation at the time of fault
    • All power condition values are stored by phase for voltage, current, and power factor per fault
    • Data is easily displayed and saved on any web browser using an Ethernet connection. The IPS incorporates internal web-server. No additional software required
    • Time and date stamped for utility documentation

    InputsVoltage AutoAccepts 12-130VAC/DC.
    Applying voltage will send a run command to the starter when in Auto mode.
    Dry Contact Auto Normally Open dry contact.
    When closed, the starter will be commanded to run when in Auto mode.
    ShutdownAccepts 12-130VAC/DC.
    Applying voltage will open the contactor and the starter will not accept a run command
    Hand/Off/Auto LEDs will flash.
    Actuator Position SwitchNormally Open dry contact.
