Xylem launches compact Flygt pump controller

Xylem says the Flygt FGC400 is a self-contained, intuitive controller with powerful pre-programmed functionality, which enables the operator to quickly and easily install and configure the unit to match specific wastewater pumping needs. The company adds that the controller can be easily connected to one or two pumps and offers the pump operator flexibility, including the ability to alternate between pumps, track information on pump performance and undertake maintenance actions. Energy measurement, data loggers and level monitoring are all built into the compact unit, eliminating the need for complex electrical cabinets. This makes it a very cost-efficient monitoring solution, according to Xylem. In addition, integrated motor protection functionality automatically monitors and protects the pump motor against voltage phase failure, overload and voltage fluctuations. Preventative maintenance and troubleshooting information alert the operator to potential pump problems before they occur. Xylem’s Flygt FGC400 is capable of controlling pumps up to 5.5 kilowatts (kW), or larger pumps using external contactors, and is equipped to readily sync with external controls systems like SCADA systems - all combined in a compact box. The unit can be easily configured via PC, USB or the controller’s intuitive HMI. The detachable interface, which can be mounted next to the controller or used as a handheld device, provides a wealth of actionable real-time data.
