Yaskawa America Introduces Intelligent iQpump Micro Drives
Jane Alexander | December 16, 2014
The Drives & Motion Division of Yaskawa America, Inc. has announced the release of the iQpump Micro intelligent pump drive, An extension of the company’s proven iQpump1000 drive technology, the new product has been designed to provide simple, reliable, cost-effective microdrive control for variable-torque pump loads through 25 HP.
Yaskawa notes that although some end-users with light-commercial, industrial, agricultural and ground-water well-system applications have been interested in a more cost-effective simplex and multiplex constant-pressure pump-control solution, they haven’t wanted to sacrifice what they’ve come to enjoy with the full-featured iQpump1000. The recently released iQpump Micro drive meets their needs: Many of the same software features and control along with the same programming style as iQpump1000, but in a package that saves cost.
The iQpump Micro is available in NEMA 1 and NEMA-4X rated models. NEMA 3R Configured Packages are also available.
About iQpump technology
According to Yaskawa, its family of iQpump drives reflects a variety of package options and an exceptional level of advanced, comprehensive pump and motor protection, yet offers ease of setup and diagnostics designed for pump operators and service technicians. Integrated pump-specific software allows for a wide range of pumping applications, from constant-pressure, -flow and geothermal to multiple pump-booster systems, wet-well lift stations and many others. As process variables change, iQpump technology automatically adjusts pump operating conditions to meet system demand, while maintaining pump performance and protection.
