Power Load Monitor protects motor-driven pumps.

Press Release Summary:



Power Load Monitor protects pumps from overload or underload conditions created by over-pressure, cavitation, empty tank or other problems. By monitoring voltage and power, unit measures normal working load, then calculates and sets automatic shutdown point for detected power changes. Load limit margin is adjustable to prevent unintentional stoppage. Monitor handles single- or 3-phase motors up to 50 full load amps, at voltages up to 690 Vac, 50 or 60 Hz.

Viking's New Power Load Monitor Offers Pump System Protection


Viking Pump has introduced the Power Load Monitor, which can protect any motor-driven pump and pump system from either overload or underload conditions created by over-pressure, cavitation, empty tank or other problems. Suitable for both new installations and for upgrading existing units, the new Power Load Monitor helps prevent downtime and reduce maintenance costs caused by pump and system problems. It provides high levels of accuracy and reliability, as well as simple installation.

By monitoring both voltage and power, Viking's Power Load Monitor measures the normal working load, then calculates and sets an automatic shutdown point for detected power changes. The load limit margin is adjustable to prevent unintentional stoppage.

To calculate the load, the Monitor utilizes the pump's electrical motor as a sensor, measuring pump motor input power and calculating power loss using an advanced algorithm. This unique measurement method is more reliable than conventional monitoring methods. The Power Load Monitor can handle single- or three-phase motors up to 50 full load amps, at voltages up to 690 VAC, 50 or 60 Hz.
