The P1000 Bypass package provides an P1000 in a NEMA 1, 12 or 3R (UL Type) enclosure, with a 3-contactor style bypass, allowing motor operation from either the drive or across the line. Built-in features make the P1000 perfect for most pump and fan applications that require reliable motor control.
The P1000 also features a wide variety of built-in communcation proticols and additional feature cards are available.
Both VFDs and PLCs have benefited from advances in processor technology and memory capacity. These advances have enabled VFDs with embedded pump specific applications to replace PLCs in certain pumping applications with numerous advantages to end users. Article written by Danny Peters.
