Original Press Release:
New "Control Freak" Touch-Screen Controller for Hydra-Cell® Pumps Introduced by Wanner Engineering
An exclusive new electronic controller that provides motor speed control for Hydra-Cell pumps features an easy-to-use touch-screen display and built-in programming. The new Control Freak™ from Wanner Engineering, Inc., manufacturer of Hydra-Cell pumps, allows the user to enter the desired flow rate or volume in gallons or liters and system pressure in psi or bar, and then the controller automatically runs the pump manually at the desired flow rate or volume total/time, or in pre-set batches.
The versatile new controller enables programming for flow rate or totalization of the recent process application as well as for the life of the pump, according to Wanner Engineering. Control Freak can control up to six pumps with one screen and 10 separate batch set-up screens per pump. It features a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) and is pre-set with password protection for Hydra-Cell pump algorithms, but it can also be field-calibrated for greater accuracy.
The 7” color graphic touch-screen user interface is in a NEMA-4X (or IP) enclosure. It is easy to operate and visible in low-light areas, Wanner states. Operational features also include a real-time clock, pump-drive information screen, four configurable on-off relays, two user-configurable analog input displays, and analog and digital I/O for interfacing with external devices. One analog input is dedicated to a pre-programmed closed loop feedback.
The company says that the new metering controller has standard safety features for emergency stop, loss of power, and fault monitoring. Optional features include an oil temperature probe kit, and ball-mount assembly for the touch screen, VFD enclosure and additional cables
