SubDrive SolarPAK, a complete, one-box system solution that provides the pump components needed to build a solar-powered water well system
Franklin Electric announces the release of SubDrive SolarPAK, a complete, one-box system solution that provides the pump components needed to build a solar-powered water well system. Designed specifically for pumping clean water using a renewable energy supply, SubDrive SolarPAK includes a solar-powered controller, a submersible pump and motor, and a flow switch, in ratings from 5 to 90 gpm. Using a PV array as the input power source, SubDrive SolarPAK is ideal for use in applications where traditional grid power is unavailable, unreliable or undesirable.
In addition to the product itself, Franklin Electric has made system-specific support software available on its dedicated website, www.franklin-electric.com/solar. The Solar Selector allows users to input simple location information and water requirements to determine which SubDrive SolarPAK fits the application. The Solar Selector also provides recommendations for panel array configuration based on user-entered panel characteristics.
The release of SubDrive SolarPAK follows an intense development process based on voice of customer research and proven design principles, as well as more than a year of testing and operation in global markets. The system has demonstrated itself to be robust and reliable in a wide variety of weather and application conditions.
