As the complexity of building systems continues to increase, the challenge of designing, installing and operating these systems also increases. New building codes continue to raise efficiency standards for new and existing buildings; economic conditions pressure organizations to cut energy costs wherever possible; and new corporate sustainability initiatives require steady efficiency improvements.
One of the advantages of the new Aquavar Intelligent Pump Controller (IPC) is the flexibility to use the drive in many different applications. Whether it is a borehole application requiring outdoor enclosure or surface mount pump and motor requiring a drive to withstand corrosive environment, the IPC has the right solution. Each drive enclosure is constructed to provide a different degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts. The following table is meant to serve as a quick reference tool to easily compare and contrast different types of enclosures as well as to provide some general applications to help specify selection.
