14 Nov 2016

Franklin Electric Co., Inc. announces its new Fhoton SolarPAK System, featuring a Franklin Electric submersible pump and motor, and the Fhoton solar controller in one package. When used with solar panels to power the pump and motor, the system draws groundwater to the surface for a variety of uses. The catalyst behind this new system, the Fhoton solar controller, features a compact modular design, providing installation flexibility for the contractor. For added durability, it touts a robust IP66, NEMA 4 enclosure that protects against wildlife, insects, dust, and weather. The controller includes diagnostic features and built-in protection from potential harmful conditions, such as: surge, underload (dry run), overvoltage, locked pump, open and short circuit, overheated controller, and reverse polarity. The Franklin Electric Fhoton SolarPAK System is cULus and UL approved and available in a variety of flow rates from 2.5 to 90 gpm (9.5 to 270 lpm) and power ratings of 0.75 and 1.5 hp (0.55 or 1.1 kW). Fhoton can drive a broad range of submersible and surface motor types and can be used in a new solar array or retrofit to an existing array in many cases. The Fhoton SolarPAK System supports a variety of pumping applications, including: livestock watering, tank/cistern filling, wildlife refuge and game farms, rural water supply for villages and homesteads, irrigation systems, fountains, vineyards, renewable energy projects, effluent pumping, rain harvesting, and more.
