    • Provides consistent water pressure across a system, eliminating fluctuations
    • Soft start maximizes system life
    • Advanced filtering to mitigate interference with sensitive electronic devices, such as LED lighting and smart home appliances
    • Power Factor Correction that optimizes the system for a wider performance range
    • Additional built-in protections include:
      • Underload (Dry-run) with customizable sensitivity and off time
      • Overload / Locked pump
      • Broken pipe detection
      • Output short circuit and open circuit
      • Undervoltage
      • Electrical surge
      • Overheated controller
      • Moisture sensor input
      • Run and fault relays
  • Simple Installation, Made Easier Through Connectivity: The easy-to-install platform uses an array of setup, local monitoring, and assisted troubleshooting solutions to help you save time during installation and servicing:
    • LCD display provides immediate feedback and read-outs on pressure and system status
    • No programming is required with easy DIP switches for basic drive configuration
    • Integrated connectivity and compatibility with our FE Connect mobile app for real-time data and monitoring; access to advanced features such as motor frequency range, lead/lag/alternation, broken pipe detection, and fault log retrieval
  • Redefined Versatility to Tackle a Wider Range of Applications:
    • Ideal for new construction or retrofitting and optimizing submersible and above-ground systems from 1/2 – 5 hp, with single-phase, two-wire and three-wire, or three-phase
    • Available as a standalone drive or as the popular SubDrive Connect QuickPAK delivering motor, pump, and drive all in one package
    • Built-in lead/lag and alternation capability for duplex systems
    • Comes standard with various input/output (I/O) ports for streamlined compatibility with adjacent systems
  • Smaller Footprint, Smarter Use of Space:
    • Compact design, that is ideal for wall-mounting, works with small pressure tanks or existing larger tanks
    • Can be used indoors or outside since the self-contained NEMA 3R-rated drive provides a degree of protection against falling rain or sleet
  • Fully Supported: Comes fully supported by the industry-leading technical support professionals and field service engineers
