Franklin Electric’s new Cerus® X-Drive Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) is designed for intuitive and streamlined programming so users can get to full operational capabilities in less time – no matter what the application or market. Plus, the Cerus X-Drive has the ability to handle variable torque applications up to 700 horsepower, for more power when you need it; and energy-savings when you don’t.
Key Product Features Include:
The right controller and firmware for various applications
The Cerus X-Drive VFD is loaded with application-specific firmware with enhanced settings that control and protect motors for the most demanding applications in municipal, mining, agricultural and commercial markets.
Easy programming; reduced learning curve
Get up and running in minutes, not hours, thanks to a large, easy-to-read display that allows you to navigate all of the drive’s main parameters without scrolling through multiple screens. Factory presets offer programming options that work in many applications, meeting industry standards for submersible and centrifugal pumps.
More power and control; smaller footprint
The 1/6 to 700-horsepower drive is more compact than similar drives in its class. The pre- and dual-PID control provides constant pressure and enhanced modes with external or cascade control options.
Reduced energy costs
By running the motor to meet the demand of your application, the Cerus X-Drive can reduce energy costs by up to 50%. Plus, the variable motor speed allows for soft start, protecting the life of the system and offering long-term savings.
