Xylem introduces the CentriPro Aquavar intelligent pump controller at NGWA 2013. New platform utilizes CentriPro expertise for improved efficiency, effectiveness.
Nashville, Tenn. — Dec. 3, 2013 — Xylem Inc., a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world’s most challenging water issues, announced the CentriPro brand Aquavar intelligent pump controller for submersible and above-ground applications at the 2013 National Ground Water Association (NGWA) show, December 3-6 in Nashville, Tenn. The new Aquavar platform is on display at booth 803.
Using an innovative modular platform, the Aquavar is designed to provide variable frequency pumping control of speed, pressure, flow and level over a wide range of submersible and above-ground applications. The controller offers easy application, is compatible with a variety of building management system protocols, and offers open, indoor and outdoor enclosures.
Aquavar ensures quick commissioning and ease of use through its application specific Start-Up Genie tool. The removable, graphic control panel displays large text on a large backlit screen, making it easy to read. Start-up is also made easy using the My Personal Menu, which lists the 20 most commonly-used parameters, and is customizable by the end user based on their specific pumping system.
“The benefit of this intelligent VFD is that it helps groundwater professionals adapt quickly and efficiently to any application, whether that’s standard day-to-day operation or not,” said Joshua Allen, Americas product manager, drives and controls for Xylem’s Applied Water Systems business unit. “With more than 20 years of variable speed pumping experience, the CentriPro brand once again builds on its history of easy start-up using pump specific language with this more versatile, technologically advanced product.”
The pump controller comes with built-in features to optimize performance and efficiency. The automatic motor adaption and automated energy optimization help to maximize the compatibility between drive and motor and improve system efficiency as loads change. Aquavar also helps protect against the following: cavitation, dead head, blocked suction, circuit shortage, phase loss, overload, undervoltage and overvoltage over an application range of 1.5 to 125 horsepower.
