Grundfos has introduced a line of integrated pump motors, drives and control ideals for new commercial HVAC/R applications and retrofits.
LCSE split-coupled end suction pumps with integrated motor, drive and control feature the MLE variable speed motor in ranges from 3 to 30 horsepower (HP) in 3,500 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 3 to 25HP in 1,800 RPM. Available in 21 different models, the fully integrated, intelligent LCSE pumping system offers energy savings of up to 50%, according to the company.
Ideally suited for new commercial HVAC/R applications and retrofits, the energy‐optimised system consists of a controller, variable frequency drive (VFD) and standard asynchronous motor all in one. In addition, the LCSE features a footprint 35% smaller than that of a frame-mounted design and its plug-and-pump design is intended for quick and easy installation. The LCSE also features Grundfos GO technology, which allows building managers to remotely control and monitor the pump from a smart phone or tablet.
Suitable applications include HVAC, plumbing, pressure boosting, industrial, water utility, wastewater and agriculture.
