Water system supplier Franklin Electric Co. Inc. has expanded its Fhoton SolarPAK System product family. In a release, the company says it now offers systems operating on as few as two solar panels up through large-scale watering systems using thousands of gallons per day. The product line now offers a variety of flow rates from 2 to 375 gpm, and power ratings of ½ up to 10 horsepower.
The company’s new ½-horsepower Fhoton SolarPAK Systems operate using only 48 volts, minimizing the number of panels required to run the system. Even with modest power, it produces flow ranges from 2 to 20 gpm.
