Yaskawa designed the iQpump®1000 with pump service operators and pump system owners in mind. iQpump1000 offers ease of setup and comprehensive pump and motor protection features.
The integrated pump specific software and set up parameters allow the operator to program control values for a wide range of applications. The iQpump1000 will automatically adjust pump operating conditions, as the process variables change while still maintaining optimum pump performance and protection.
iQpump1000 can also replace phase converters when converting from a single-phase to a three-phase pump motor.
Both VFDs and PLCs have benefited from advances in processor technology and memory capacity. These advances have enabled VFDs with embedded pump specific applications to replace PLCs in certain pumping applications with numerous advantages to end users. Article written by Danny Peters.
