A standard feature on all Optidrive Eco drives
A single 'Master' drive acts to control and monitor system operation. Control connections are made to this drive only, saving installation time and reducing costs.
Additional drives connected on the system require a single RJ45 connection and basic commissioning, leading to time savings and simplified installation.
The system can operate with up to five pumps in any configuration, e.g. Duty / Assist / Standby. Duty pumps are automatically rotated, ensuring maximum service life and system efficiency.
The required pressure and flow levels are maintained regardless of how many pumps are required. When demand increases, additional pumps are automatically brought on stream to assist and are switched off again when not required.
In the event of a fault, or if a pump needs to be isolated for maintenance, the system will automatically continue to operate with the remaining available pumps. The mains power can even be completely isolated from the Master drive without affecting operation of the Slave drives.
