Lowara : Hydrovar 5th Generation

Motor mounted variable speed pump controller up to 22kW

The 5th generation of the Hydrovar is now more efficient than ever and easier to install and operate, making it the ideal variable speed pump drive for new and retrofit applications.

The Hydrovar works with any standard AC motor and can be direct mounted or wall mounted to support any manufacturer’s pump. The built-in application software makes it the easiest drive to commission, program and operate, enabling virtually any configuration of pumps. Backward compatibility assures the latest generation Hydrovar will work seamlessly with existing generation 4 systems.

Integrated pump functions provide protection for the pump and motors, and the embedded THDi filter further extends equipment life by improving the quality of energy from the grid. All of this means reliable energy savings of up to 70% from a compact, easy-to-use drive suited for nearly any application.
