Eaton to highlight cost and energy saving solutions for the pump industry at conference

Among the products on the Eaton stand will be its PowerXL DE1 Variable Speed Starters, which bridge the gap between a conventional fixed-speed starter and a variable speed drive. IE3-ready motor control gear that is guaranteed to be fully compatible with the latest high-efficiency motors will also be a focus at the stand.

“New directives and standards are challenging the pump industry to come up with ways of increasing energy efficiency while keeping costs down,” said Stuart Greenwood, Product Marketing Manager – Industrial Control and Automation, Eaton. “The first step to addressing these requirements was for motor manufacturers to develop high efficiency products, which they have done very successfully.”

“To make further gains, however, designers of pumping systems now need to look beyond the motor, and consider carefully the contributions that the motor control systems can make to energy efficiency. At Eaton, we have a unique combination of products and experience that will help them do this, and we’ll be happy to demonstrate to those who visit us at the Pump Centre Exhibition.”
