Variable Speed Drive controls 2 to 4 pump systems.

Press Release Summary:



PumpSmart Model PS 200 microprocessor based, variable speed drive is programmed specifically for centrifugal pumps up to 700 HP. Control of process parameters is obtained by continuous monitoring and reaction to both pump conditions and system demands. Pump output is matched to exact flow and head required by process. PS 200 protects pump from dry running, low suction, cavitation, dead heading and excessive run out.

New PumpSmart Model PS 200 from Goulds Pumps Couples Greater Reliability and Control with Energy Savings


Seneca Falls, New York, USA - Goulds Pumps, an ITT Industries Company, has introduced another major addition to its award-winning PumpSmart Control Solutions product line. Like previous
offerings, the new Model PS 200 is a microprocessor based, variable speed drive, programmed specifically for centrifugal pumps up to 700 HP.

The PS 200 is designed for both simplicity and functionality, making it ideal for a wide range of applications where previously process controllers were too costly and complex.

Accurate control of virtually any process parameter is obtained by the continuous monitoring and reaction to both pump conditions and system demands. Pump output is matched to the exact flow and head required by the process. Energy savings in the 30-70% range are obtained because at lower demands, the PS 200 reduces the motor speed eliminating the extra energy that's used to overcome the pressure drop of control valves.

The PS 200 enables the control of 2 to 4 pump systems without the need for separate PLCs and custom programming. Lead sharing is seamless, and automatic pump alternation provides even wear and maximum pump life.

Pump reliability is optimized because the PS 200 protects the pump from upset conditions including dry running, low suction, cavitation, dead heading and, excessive run out. These conditions are the cause of most pump and mechanical seal failures.

The new PS 200 can be applied to any centrifugal pump in a wide range of applications including: cooling water, transfer and loading, paper stock pumps, reboiler and bottom pumps, wastewater, filtation, sui-ry pum,ps and boi,er feed.
