Seneca Falls, New York, USA –PumpSmart Control Solutions, a division of ITT Industries, has introduced PumpSmart Model 200 Version 4.0, a major addition to the award winning PumpSmart product line. Like previous PumpSmart offerings, the new Model PS 200 Version 4.0 is a microprocessor based, variable speed drive, programmed specifically for water and wastewater centrifugal pumps up to 700 HP. The new PumpSmart Version 4.0 has new features that improve pump reliability and performance by protecting the pump from operating in upset conditions and matching pump speed to process demands. The integrated logic also enables the ability to monitor the condition of the pump and predict wear to the hydraulic components.
The new Model PS 200 Version 4.0, provides the following major improvements: a patent pending feature called Torque Pump Protect (TPP). TPP provides advanced pump protection without the need for external sensors. TPP is an algorithm that monitors pump loads to determine conditions of operations such as running below minimum flow, dry running and run out conditions. TPP has the unique ability to compensate for speed changes, and for mechanical losses that are common on smaller pumps with mechanical seals. TPP is capable of being used on all operating macros, including speed control and multi-pump processes.
The new MultiVariable Control feature is a ratio controller that allows a set point to be manipulated by three ranges of a second process transmitter. This feature is perfect for advanced temperature control, blending applications or to help protect against pump cavitation caused by varying suction conditions. The MultiVariable Control feature on PumpSmart Version 4.0 eliminates the need for a PLC or DCS system.
The Model PS 200 Version 4.0 contains a patented pump wear monitor, which enables it to automatically identify pump performance decreases due to the wearing of hydraulic components. This wear monitor works on any centrifugal pump and does not require performance data to be fed into the drive. The Model PS 200 Version 4.0 provides multi-pump control, controlling up to 4 pumps in coordinated fashion to meet system demand and maximize pump performance and reliability. In addition, the units can alternate lead and lag as desired.
The PumpSmart PS200 v4.o is available in a number of engineered configurations including bypass starting, low harmonic options, and SCAPA control integration.
As with previous PumpSmart models, energy savings in the 30-70% range are obtained because at lower demands the PS Model 200 Version 4.0 reduces the motor speeds eliminating the extra energy that’s used to overcome the pressure drop of control valves. This new model can be applied to any centrifugal pump in a wide range of industrial and municipal applications.
