The pump operates on demand with a three float set up. The three floats are On float, Off float and High Water Alarm float. This control does have a contactor that is used to start and stop the pump. This control is designed to operate pumps with internal capacitors. If using external capacitor pumps, the capacitor kit from the pump manufacturer must be used.
This control panel will operate a 208/240 VAC single phase 2 HP pump or smaller. There are two circuit breakers in this control. The pump uses a 20 Amp double pole circuit breaker and the alarm uses a 10 Amp single pole circuit breaker. The alarm is designed to be used with a float switch. When the float switch closes, the 360 degree top mounted red alarm light will come on and the Pizo electric buzzer will sound. There are alarm test and buzzer silence switches mounted in the door of the enclosure. This control is mainly used to pump sewage from a septic holding tank to a treatment unit using a solids handling or grinder pump.
The enclosure has a NEMA rating of 4X which provides protection from falling dirt, falling liquids, hose directed water and corrosive agents. The 10”x8”x4” enclosure is made of Polycarbonate and has a hinged lockable door with latches and included screws to secure the door if required. All electrical components are mounted inside the enclosure on an aluminum back plate.
