KSB has developed LevelControl Basic 2, a control unit for the monitoring and control of either one or two pumps.
The unit detects the liquid level either via a float switch, an analogue sensor, an integrated pneumatic pressure sensor or a bubbler system. Depending on the motor power, the pumps can be started up either directly or in star-delta configuration. Phase and voltage monitoring, as well as monitoring of service intervals, are standard features of LevelControl Basic 2.
The control unit is available in either a compact housing or a stainless steel cabinet and has a display which shows all important information. The unit is optionally available with a rechargeable battery and charging unit for powering the electronics and the signalling equipment. This ensures the mains-independent function of both the integrated buzzer for high-water alert and of any horns or flashlights connected.
