The system uses solar technology alongside the Fhoton solar controller and includes a submersible pump and motor. When it is used with solar panels to power the pump and motor, the system draws groundwater to the surface. This method is a good choice for remote areas where delivering water is impractical due to the unreliable availability of electricity.
The catalyst behind the system is the Fhoton solar controller which has a compact design giving flexibility for installation. For extra durability there is also the strong IP66, NEMA 4 enclosure which protects against wildlife, insects and the weather. The controller includes diagnostic features and built in protection from potentially harmful conditions such as a power surge or an overheated controller.
The Fhoton SolarPAK system is available in a variety of flow rates from 2.5 to 90 gpm and power ratings of 0.75 and 1.5 hp. Its motor control algorithm and hardware design enables users to get a higher solar or photon-to-water energy conversion ratio. It supports many different pumping applications, such as livestock watering and rural water supply for villages and homesteads.
