To become the worlds largest manufacture in any industry you have to be close to your customers and understand their requirements. Around the world customers rely on Yaskawa AC drives for critical pumping applications and for these customers the integration of controls and drive is critical challenge. To provide a simple but powerful pumping solution with minimal integration Yaskawa have produced the iQpump drive.
You can see how easy the iQump can be set up in a simplex operation from the below video
Protection of the pump, fault recovery and communication of pump status are what customers rely on to turn workable components into a robust and reliable system. A good overview of the more advanced pump protection features can be viewed on the below video.
For more complex applications the same standard drive can be used to run lag pumps drawing in more pumping capacity with no need for an external controller. The drive can even be set up to reduce pressure surges as the lag pumps come on line.
For even more sophisticated applications multiplexing arrangements can be set up to allow duty cycle sharing across up to 8 pumps without any external PLC or HMI
Have a large factory environment and still want to connect to a factory SCADA solution? The iQpump comes standard with Modbus over RS485 but has options for BACnet, Ethernet/IP, Modus TCP/IP and many others.
