The PumpDrive 2; a self-cooling variable frequency drive that can be motor or wall/cabinet mountable , allows you to reduce your pump’s energy consumption proficiently. The system comes ready for operation, pre-parameterized to the pump and motor, with adjustability possible. PumpDrive 2 adjusts the rotational speed of the motor – and with that the pump’s flow rate and head – to match current demand to keep on the best efficiency levels.

The PumpDrive R, a variable frequency drive that enables you to reduce your pump’s energy consumption. The inverter comes ready for operation, pre-set to the pump and motor.

Our SES System Efficiency Service will show you ways to increase the energy efficiency of your pump systems and prolong their service lives. Whatever the application - energy, industry, water or waste water - by recording extensive measurement data it is possible to evaluate the operation of a system and identify potential savings (energy efficiency analysis) as well as any causes of damage (damage analysis).
