This client needed to transfer water at a certain rate from a canal to a buffer dam.

With ABB ACQ580 variable speed drives we were able to provide a solution. Using the internal sensorless flow calculator feature.

The all-compatible ACQ580 drives for water and wastewater simplify your pumping processes and motor control while ensuring energy efficiency. These robust and compact wall-mounted, module and cabinet-built drives have built-in pumping functionalities such as sensorless flow calculation, multi-pump control, level control, soft pipe fill, dry run protection, quick ramps and pump cleaning. Usability is enhanced with the intuitive Hand-Off-Auto control panel and the PC tool Drive Composer. The built-in energy calculator visualizes the energy savings achieved with the drive. The ACQ580 controls virtually any kind of motor including IE5 synchronous reluctance motors. Connectivity is supported by a wide range of fieldbus protocols.

The ACQ580 also offers an ultra-low harmonic variant ensuring a stable and smooth power network during water treatment and operation.
