Franklin Electric Co., Inc. has introduced its new MonoDrive Utility variable frequency drive, which provides an easy-to-install 3-wire constant pressure solution for 230 V submersible pumping systems up to 2 horsepower.

Requiring only a small pressure tank, the MonoDrive Utility variable frequency drive offers a more compact overall footprint compared to traditional water systems, while providing the added value of constant water pressure and built-in motor protection. One MonoDrive Utility replaces up to nine control box configurations, simplifying inventory requirements while providing a more desirable value for the end user.

Once wired, setup requires the simple flip of one switch in most applications, saving significant time during installation. Designed with a sleek NEMA 3R (Type 3R) enclosure, it is rated for both indoor and outdoor use that provides a degree of protection against falling rain or sleet. MonoDrive Utility is optimized for 3-wire pumping systems utilizing a Franklin Electric motor, making retrofitting to current systems seamless.
