Variable Frequency Drives

SubDrive Utility

Franklin Electric's SubDrive Utility™ Variable Frequency Drives provide an easy-to-install constant pressure solution for 115 V and 230 V single-phase, two-wire systems and 230 V three-wire and three-phase systems up to 2 hp.

Requiring only a small pressure tank in most applications, they offer a more compact overall footprint compared to traditional water systems while providing the added value of constant water pressure and built-in motor protection.

Designed with a sleek NEMA 3R (Type 3R) enclosure, they are rated for both indoor and outdoor use that provides a degree of protection against falling rain or sleet."


Features & Benefits

  • Designed for Water Systems, Optimized for Constant Pressure: Designed specifically for water pumping applications, SubDrive Utility delivers unique features:
    • Provides consistent water pressure across a system, eliminating fluctuations
    • Additional built-in protections include:
      • Underload (Dry-run) with customizable sensitivity
      • Overload / Locked pump
      • Output short circuit and open circuit
      • Undervoltage
  • Simple Installation, Easy-to-install drive: most applications require the simple flip of one switch, saving significant time during installation
  • Versatility for Multiple Applications:
    • Ideal for retrofitting or optimizing existing single-phase, two-wire or three-wire, and three-phase submersible or above ground pumping systems up to 2 horsepower
  • Smaller Footprint, Smarter Use of Space:
    • Compact design, that is ideal for wall-mounting, works with small pressure tanks or existing units
    • Cost-effective solution that replaces the need for multiple control boxes, a pressure switch, and larger tanks; delivers a total system cost at or below standard installations with pump flows of 10 gpm and greater
    • 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
