Control Techniques’ F600 drive, dedicated to the pump sector, offers a simple and innovative interface, together with a reliable and precise control. F600 has been designed to ensure optimum performance with fast and easy commissioning, as well as contributing to energy savings.
Control Techniques, part of the Nidec Group, has enhanced its portfolio with the introduction of a specialist pump drive. Control Techniques provides a simple and innovative interface whilst delivering dependable control in the areas it’s needed most. F600’s wide power range, from 1.1k W all the way to 2.8 MW, makes it ideal for all applications at any power within the water, agriculture, and food & beverage industries, as well as for industrial heating and cooling. It has been designed and engineered from the ground up with the tools, features and functionality demanded by users in industries reliant on pumps. Users can access dedicated features covering pipe fill, pipe cleaning, over-cycling protection, dry-run prevention and switch control, while a host of control modes covering fans, single pumps, cascade, and multi-leader pump systems make Control Techniques’ F600 an effective and versatile variable speed control solution.
Energy savings helps reduce the total cost of ownership
One of the key benefits offered by the F600 range is its ability to implement considerable energy savings, optimising the general consumption of the system. On average, 85% of a pump’s life cycle cost is attributed to its energy consumption, so optimising the energy usage greatly reduces the total cost of ownership. Specific features within F600 include sleep mode, which automatically engages when demand falls below a specific point, and Control Techniques’ leading-edge motor control technology which initiates dynamic modification of the rated frequency to further save energy.
Simple commissioning and intuitive configuration
F600 is designed for simple installation and commissioning, with readily available core functionalities for pump applications, meaning optimum performance can be achieved straight out of the box, with minimal set-up.
Users also gain access to Control Techniques’ suite of PC tools, with dedicated pump set-up screens guiding you through every step of the process. The drive’s onboard parameters have also been grouped within a single menu, designed specifically with pump applications in mind, making installation, set-up and operation as simple as possible.
