Xylem has released the fifth generation HYDROVAR, an intelligent pump controller that accurately adapts to system demands, helping end users realize cost and energy savings while achieving optimum system performance. The new drive can reduce energy consumption of a pump by as much as 70 percent. Capable of running systems with up to eight pumps, the new HYDROVAR has multimaster functionality, enabling each individual pump to take control if one or more units or sensors are not active. Setup and commissioning are also fast and simple. The start-up menu guides users through every step of HYDROVAR’s commissioning process, while the larger LCD display shows an expanded range of system parameters for standard motors.
