Multipump control solution

The 100 FLOW is an ac drive designed to improve flow control for multi-pump applications in which several pumps are used in place of a single one.

Courtesy of VaconThe 100 FLOW by Vacon is an ac drive designed to improve flow control for multi-pump applications. The 100 FLOW offers control of flow and pressure of eight pumps (or fans) without the need for an external controller-communication between drives is provided by integrated RS-485. The 100 FLOW AC Drive is equipped with built-in Ethernet as standard. The 100 FLOW offers single drive multi-pump, multi-drive multi-master and multi-drive multi-follower solutions. In multi-master mode, each pump is controlled by its own ac drive. As demand increases, the leading drive increases its speed until the capacity is exceeded, at which point the excess load is transferred to the next drive in the series.
